The Niagara Falls is one of the most iconic tourist attractions in North America and the flow of visitors it attracts is almost as impressive as the flow of water over the Falls. Hiring a self catering apartment can be a very cost effective way to experience the Niagara Falls and the surrounding area, especially if you are travelling with friends or another family.
The chances are that if you meet anyone who has been to the Niagara Falls, they will regale you with an account of their Maid of the Mist boat trip. Passengers board the boat and are provided with a light raincoat. Its purpose soon becomes clear as the boat takes you up close and personal to the spray and mist generated by the roaring waterfall. It’s a great way to fully appreciate the power and majesty of this wonderful work of nature.
When visiting Niagara Falls, make sure you take in the Cave of the Winds. Descending 175 feet by elevator, a tour guide will then take you across a series of wooden walkways to an area that is referred to as the “Hurricane Deck”. This will bring you as close to the Falls as you could possibly want to get. As well as being a mere few feet from the roar of the falling water, you will be treated to the sight of stunning rainbows.
Toronto is easily accessible from Niagara Falls. This provides a perfect opportunity to check out the sights and sounds of this vibrant Canadian city. Ascending to the top of the CN Tower provides breathtaking sights of the city’s skyline, whilst you can get closer to the ground by trying out one of Toronto’s many outdoor ice skating rinks. For those with an eye for bargains, Toronto also offers plenty of shopping opportunities. Toronto is an extremely cosmopolitan city so the choice of eateries is also almost unparalleled.
Canada is the home of ice hockey and the Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the biggest names in the sport. This fast paced and skilful sport is great fun to watch and all the more so when you factor in the frenzy of excitement that accompanies hockey matches in Canada. The city is also home to the Blue Jays, a successful baseball team and this offers another opportunity to experience one of the big North American sports. Both hockey and baseball offer a family orientated viewing experience. As well as the on-field action, there’s also music, cheerleaders, and refreshments to ensure that spectators are entertained and comfortable.
