Niagara Falls & Toronto

A couple of months ago, a friend of mine visited from out of town, and we decided to go to Niagara Falls for a day. Having driven to Niagara region a few days prior, I was relieved when my friend offered to drive for the whole duration of the trip.



Although it was my second time in Niagara Falls, many sights were unfamiliar, as my last visit was during the winter when most things were still iced up. It was great to see the falls in its full glory without having to worry about myself turning into an icicle.



After doing the Journey Behind the Falls, we headed back to Downtown Toronto in a very heavy traffic with Don Valley Parkway being closed for the weekend. I understand the importance of highway maintenance, but to shutting down the highway for the entire weekend must have inconvenienced A LOT of people.


After grabbing a quick, but a little disappointing bite in Koreatown, we head to distillery district for a drink at Mill Street Brewery. I had been to the distillery district before on a few different occasions, but I never had a chance to explore its roots - beers. As I consider myself to be a self-proclaimed beer connoisseur, not being acquainted with one of the most iconic Toronto beers was a little embarrassing.


I had always wanted to capture a good night time skyline of Toronto from a vantage point along Lake Ontario. I managed to cross that off my bucket list when I walked to Polson Pier from Distillery District.
