    Experiencing natural wonder and quintessential kitsch in Niagara Falls

    From the Toronto Star:

    I tried to do it all — the mazes and minigolf and midway and magic. I rode on a zip line, a ferris wheel, a cable car and a helicopter. I lunched at a rotating restaurant, looking down at tumbling tumultuous water, then out at the distant towers of downtown Toronto. I pet a parrot. I played “Hercules,” the world’s largest pinball machine. I stared into the waxy eyes of Hollywood heroes and my own long face in funhouse mirrors. I lost five dollars to a one-cent slot machine called “Treasure Tempest.” I even ate a beavertail. I saw illuminations and fireworks. I got soaked on the Hornblower, and I soaked in my retro hotel room’s heart-shaped Jacuzzi. For a very fleeting moment, I was actually spooked in a haunted house. Then, on a hike deep in the Niagara Gorge, I felt awe.

    Welcome to Niagara Falls, Ont. — the most Instagrammed place in Canada, home of the most voluminous waterfall in North America and (still unofficially) the Honeymoon Capital of the World.

Instead, you might be thinking of crowds of tourists and cheesy attractions in the Clifton Hill District. But a road trip to Niagara Falls brings the opportunity to take in breathtaking country scenery, quaint lakeside towns, local wineries and historic sites.
