Niagara Falls, ON

On July 4, 2016, my husband and I left Saudi Arabia for Toronto, Canada. It was an uneventful flight, thankfully. The last thing you need is drama ahead of or during a 12 hour flight. It was slightly different than the flight we normally take to JFK. First of all, I found a couple flight attendants to be rude, and the food wasn’t quite as good. But there are definitely worse things such as flying on Turkish Airlines to JFK.

We arrived in Toronto where my parents picked us up. We drove to Niagara Falls, which was a short drive. We stayed at the Hilton which was a nice choice because it was so close to the falls, and our room had a view of the falls. We could see both the Canadian and American falls which was awesome.

Niagara Falls doesn’t get old. I’d be happy to go again and again. However, I definitely do not recommend going during the summer months. It was crowded when we went in late September 2014 to the American side, and it was so much worse this time around. It’s so touristy. The crowds of people make it a little less enjoyable in my opinion.

But, you simply can’t beat this site…

We were only there for 2 nights, so we didn’t actually do everything we planned. And I must admit I was too lazy to do some things anyway. I spend most of the year standing in front of a class or sitting in front of a computer looking for things to use in class. My legs were in shock.

After we left Niagara, we were off to Quebec City, sore legs and all.
