Niagara Falls is a beautiful, impressive, famous waterfall which is located on the border between the United States and Canada. On the U.S. side, it’s just outside Buffalo, New York, and on the Canadian side, it’s not terribly far from Toronto. I’ve always wanted to visit this natural wonder, and it would be great to combine a visit to the Falls with a tour of the region on both sides of the border. This Wanderlust Wednesday, let’s explore what a possible U.S.-Canada journey centering around Niagara Falls might look like.
Let’s start in Buffalo, New York. This little city doesn’t get a lot of attention, but it does have some awesome things to recommend it. First of all, it’s located right on the shores of Lake Erie and really is quite a beautiful city with awesome neoclassical, art deco, and beaux arts architecture throughout the city. There are even some Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings in town, and an awesome little art gallery featuring works from Warhol and Picasso. Pretty impressive. Let’s not forget the famous Buffalo wings, which were invented here. If you’re a fan of wings and you’re looking for the real deal, look no further.

After you’ve had a little tour of the city and fueled up with some delicious Buffalo wings, it’s time to head up to Niagara Falls. Make sure to view it from both sides of the border to get the full experience.
Then, after you’ve had a nice day experiencing the wonder of the falls, it’s time to head to Toronto, where we will end our journey. Toronto is an amazingly beautiful metropolis that is full of impressive views, delicious restaurants, entertainment and nightlife, and so much more. I touched on Toronto last week so I won’t talk too much about it this week, but let’s just say it’s an awesome place to visit!
Doesn’t this sound like a great trip to take? Have you ever done this trip? I would love to hear your thoughts, tips, and stories!
