Exploring Niagara-on-the-Lake

If you are ever heading to Niagara Falls for a day trip, as we did during our recent visit to Canada, then you should also consider taking the time to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Many rush to see Niagara Falls which is completely worth while but don’t over look the gem that is NOTL.

The Niagara region is also wine country and if you go in the summer you have the opportunity to take a bike tour of one of the nearby wineries. Besides some fantastic wines coming from Ontario Canada we also make Ice Wine.  It is apparently one of our many gifts to the world – you’re welcome.

You might be wondering where the snow is considering we rocked up in the winter.  It snowed the day after we arrived (December 29th) but only a light dusting and it disappeared the next day.  The temperature dipped to -12 last week but other than that it was mild for this time of the year.

  1. Your blog is looking so pretty! I like your recent design updates.

    It is hard to believe that I’m looking at photos of Niagara in winter – it looks so sunny and I love the blue skies. Mostly, I like how open, clean and bright it looks. It must be lovely in summer. Thanks for taking us with you!

    • Thanks Mandy! I felt it needed something new.

      I was surprised as well that basically the whole trip there was no snow. That seems to have changed as of Friday though, we just missed a small storm. Good timing.

  3. Do you realize that we were probably in Niagara-on-the-Lake at the same time? That is, if you went December 2011 or Jan 2012. I was living with my sister in NOTL at that time! Maybe I passed you on the street. How weird! BTW … did you change your theme? It looks great.

    • I knew you were home during those months but wasn’t sure if it was the same time. So weird! We may have passed each other on the street. I did in fact change my theme, I wanted something that was less busy and when searching the other day came across this, glad you like it.

What say you?
