Niagara Falls

wpid-wp-1434632372933.jpegOften a group of us head up to Ontario to Niagara Falls. I guess we should feel fortunate that this wonderful site is so nearby. We usually stay at the Holiday Inn on Murray St. since it is within walking distance of the Falls , offers free parking and the Skylon is in the back yard. If you are there on Friday or Sunday you will get a fireworks show, either ask for a room with a balcony on the back of the building or head over to the casino and take advantage of there back patio.wpid-wp-1434740951272.jpeg

Food in the area is ridiculously priced, even a boring Hamburger will set you back $18.95 (or $ 15.44 US) before tax,tip and drinks.

If you plan on visiting alot of different attractions it pays to get a pass and also to ride the bus. Parking is another huge cost, most lots are a minimum of $ 20 even if its only for a short time.

If you’ve read my blog before you know I love Breweries. There is a new one Niagara Brewing it is on Clifton Hill.

The staff was very friendly and they have alot more planned for the future. It was only the first week they were open so we were only able to try four of there brews. You can also buy cans of some of there beer as well as growlers.





Don’t forget your passport.


About Atouristlife

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Insurance is still a very smart purchase as long as you are educated on what it covers and choose the best option for you. One size does not fit all, I am here to help you make the best informed decisions to benefit your lifestyle and budget , contact me today. Check out my Disney Quick Tips and many other adventures.
