    My travel guilty pleasure? Niagara Falls!

    From the Globe and Mail:

    Niagara Falls, Ont., is tacky, brash and vulgar, as subtle as a punch in the nose, as un-Canadian as a drunken brawl at a PTA meeting. This is precisely why it is so magnificent.

    It is a town full of casinos, cut-price cocktails, slightly mildewed carpets, haunted houses and dubious waxworks. There is nothing organic, artisanal or locavore in its streets. I have never seen a ukulele, though I have visited many times, and I once spent an afternoon searching in vain for hummus. It is bursting at the seams with gluten. It must never change.

    You’ll find a steady stream of family fun at Niagara Falls

    From Cleveland.com:

    Spectacular natural beauty. Gloriously tacky man-made fun. Niagara Falls is overflowing with both.

    We experienced the dual sides of the falls on a long family weekend excursion to Canada to see the holiday lights — and then some. And we loved most of it, especially our 4-year-old. So if you decide to head north for a bit of seasonal sightseeing, here are some of our favorites beyond the bright lights and big falls.
