Roadtrip to Canada with the family.. (whose idea was this?! Mine)
This was my first trip to Canada.. I heard Niagara Falls on the Canada side was a sight to be seen! So I had to check It out for myself! Along the way we did stop. Mostly for food, cause you know a girl gotta eat. (I did not get this body from missing meals)
Syracuse: Pastabilities in Syracuse,. NY: OMG Carb Heaven ..Thank you Guy Fieri (its was featured in Diner’s, Drive Inn’s, and Dives). Chicken Riggz is a must. It’s a huge portion of spicy chicken and rigatoni in a creamy tomato sauce. Along with a side of Tomato Oil and bread (perfection). It was lunch time and the line was out the door. Def worth the wait but the line moves pretty quick, don’t let it discourage you. Food is served cafeteria style and the dudes (chef’s) behind the counter were super friendly and helpful. We grabbed our tray and sat at a booth where we played with magnetic words to make cool lil sayings. It kept us pretty entertained!
Buffalo: We arrived in Buffalo, NY late at night. I wanted to stop at Anchor Bar and Grill. (the birthplace of buffalo Wings) However, they were closed (Bummer). So we checked out Duff’s Famous Wings since I heard they perfected the Buffalo Wing recipe. They were very good! Crispy and hot just how I like it! Cozy lil place with attentive service. Glad we stopped in.
Niagara Falls: The main reason for the road trip…was to check out the Falls. You have to check them out during the day and at night. At night they illuminate the Falls with interchanging colors. Very Beautiful! However, the view during the day with a beautiful blue sky and the mist is just breathtaking. We purchased the adventure pass online that included :
Hornblower Niagara Cruises (my fav) Make sure you wear your poncho !
WEGO Bus Access (2 Days)
Journey Behind the Falls
White Water Walk
There is plenty of family friendly activities around like Miniature Golf and Arcades. Also, a must is the Sky wheel and the Observation Deck at Skylon Tower. We had dinner reservations at the rotating restaurant (FYI food and service excellent, highly recommend!) and that included a ride up in the observation deck.
Toronto: We figured since we were not too far away we would check out Toronto. We checked out St. Lawrence Market. It reminded me of Philly’s Reading Terminal Market but not as big or busy. We wanted to check out Don’s Seafood and get Mussells. However, we arrived close to closing and they had no more Mussells left ! Instead we went down the block and ate at The Loaded Pierogie and I’m so glad we did. I did a Vodka flight..cuz why not. Boiled or Fried these pierogies were out of this world!. Our waitress was the sweetest. She gave me their wifi password, helped us with the menu, and told us to check out the Distillery District. The Distillery district was pretty awesome. They had live Jazz musician playing and tons of restaurants and shops for us to wonder in. It was lively, this def was the place to be in Toronto. I bought the cutest charm bracelet in one of the shops.
