Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake and Toronto

While in Toronto we visited the Niagara Falls, and went on the Maid of the Mist boat ride.  It was so fantastic that we decided to take a helicopter flight over the falls as well.  This was a great way to see how truly spectacular the falls really are and amazing to see the sheer volume of water thundering down them.  We also visited Niagara on the Lake for the afternoon and spent most of our time there wandering the pretty streets and tasting ice wines.  Once we were ice wined- out, we returned to Toronto and got beautiful views of the CN tower showing a cool lighting display for Victoria Day.  There were fireworks as well but they were nothing compared to Sydney’s fireworks.  The next day we went up the CN tower to get views around the greater Toronto area, it was a really clear day and we were told that we could see about 100kms, fantastic.  Our photos are here.

Hi Dean
Ice wine is FANTASTIC!!! It’s definitely, by far, the best ice wine we’ve ever had. We used to have it sometimes in NZ but there it’s mostly botrytised wine, but here it is in a class of it’s own. YUM.
