Family Vacation : Niagara Falls, ON, Canada

The best hotel throughout our whole trip was definitely Embassy Suites at Niagara Falls. It did cost us more than the other places we’ve stayed at… but the view of the Niagara Falls was worth every penny of it! Mom and Dad was definitely thrilled at the view from our hotel room. I was all smiles! Hehe! Pat on my back for making a reservation at this hotel. =)

The view of the falls from the top and from close up was simply magnificent. I will just keep this posting short ( less wordy), but loaded with pictures!

We stayed a night @ Niagara Falls and did a scenic drive along the river to Niagara-On-The-Lake stopping by at a Winery for some Canadian Ice Wine before heading back to USA.

PS: We dined at what I thought was the most expensive Friday’s joint! Although prices were in Canadian Dollars (the exchange rate is not significant), everything on the menu was twice the price at the Friday’s I’ve been to in the US. I suspect they are banking in on the unsuspicious tourists like us. I had thought the price difference would not be that vast, boy was I wrong! 3 entrees, 2 drinks rang up at about CAD$95. The lousy waitress we had made the dining experience more painful.=PNiagara Falls-10
