What a difference a month or so makes after we did our trip. Nice to see the ice had gone from the falls and the flowers were out. I guess we'll have to go back sometime to complete the falls experience properly. Glad that the Here app worked out for you.

Brings back some great memories of our visit to the falls - such an amazing place and the falls are stunning.

Our son loved Clifton Hill but being 8 at the time it was right up his street and he still talks about how good it was, erm hello what about the big waterfall down the street? Kids!

Loved your photos. I was glad to read your comments on the drive from Toronto down to Niagara. I am going at the end of July and have already booked a hire car but was worrying about the drive.

Glad you had a fab day!
Thanks Mel. I know you told me beforehand not to worry about hiring a car - you were right!

Thanks Bonzo. Yes you can't believe it can warm up so much in just a few weeks. The Here app was such a great tip - our only slight worry was that our phone would die on us! We had to turn it off once we were back on the main road, just so we could find our hotel at the other end. Think we made it with just 2% battery left.

This made me laugh. I can see why kids might like it. They probably think Niagara Falls themselves are boring.

Glad to help. Honestly, the drive was fine, especially if you stick to the two main roads and don't go the scenic route on the way home. Well not without a sat nav anyway!

Great to hear it's an easy drive. We are also renting a car but spending the night in Niagara before heading past Toronto and off to Picton for a couple of days.

Really enjoyed reading this. Made me re live our visit all over again. Clifton Hill is a bit "strange" beside the beautiful falls. We didnt spend any time there despite originally booking a night there. Cancelled as it was a bit "hilly" for us. Glad we did as I liked staying in Toronto better.
Really enjoying your trippie. Thanks for sharing.
