For the avid natural world wonder seeker, Niagara Falls is a must-see spot just a hop away from Toronto or Buffalo. It’s impressive, loud, and you can get pretty close to the powerful liquid forces aboard the famous Maid of the Mist, or even go behind the falls if you like, and all that Jazz.
If casinos, arcades and glow-in-the-dark mini-putts are your thing, feel free to linger in Niagara after you’ve gotten all dewy from taking in the plummeting river. Otherwise, 2 hours is more than enough time to get misty, sista, grab a souvenir and some jelly belly flavoured ice cream.
Insider tip: If you are heading back to Toronto after your visit by bus, book a Coach Canada bus that doesn’t go through Buffalo airport before picking up passengers in Niagara Falls, as our unpleasant run-in with Greyhound delayed our departure by 2 hours.
