I Went on Vacation


Scot (my boyfriend) and I went away for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. I spent a ridiculous amount of money to spring for a suite that overlooked the falls. And if you can possibly save up to do this once, do it.

I've been to Niagara Falls before, but I had never truly experienced them.

We did a bunch of things:

  1. Nightmare's Haunted House – I chickened out. Yeah. It was terrifying and you can make fun of me all you want.
  2. Ripley's Believe it Or Not
  3. Wax Museums
  4. Fireworks over the falls on Friday nights
  5. Fallsview Casino (was up $80 at one point, but ended up spending $20)
  6. Butterfly Conservatory
  7. Journey Behind the Falls
  8. The Keg overlooking the falls. STEAK AND LOBSTER!!
  9. Dave and Buster's
  10. Metro Toronto Zoo on the way home

I recommend all of it... even Nightmare's. If you are going to go to the zoo though, be sure that you are well rested. I wasn't and I was pretty darn cranky for it.

Even if you cannot afford a lot of fancy stuff, getting away for a weekend really energizes your batteries. So take a trip to your nearest campground, go to a cottage, or book a nice getaway. Midsummer is the perfect time to break the monotony of everyday life.
