We are fortunate to live near (~45 minutes’ drive) one of the world’s natural wonders, Niagara Falls. Read more HERE. Last weekend year, free from doggie houseguests, hubby and I took an overnight getaway there, to enjoy the annual Winter Festival of Lights. We missed the fireworks (Fridays only until the week before Christmas, then daily), but otherwise had a fabulous time exploring the displays. We’ve been to Niagara dozens of times, but this was our first visit to the top of the Skylon Tower. It’s much smaller than Toronto’s CN Tower, but the views are still amazing! Enjoy the show.

  1. I’ve never been to Niagara Falls and didn’t realize they had special holiday displays. The prettiest “display” I’ve ever seen was from the restaurant in Seattle’s Space Needle. We went there for dinner many years ago. As the restaurant revolved, the snow fell. It was magic.

    1. We’re not much better, Birgit! 🙂 Most of our trips to The Falls have been in the summer. Our first winter visit was in 2012. Hubby and I have decided to take a drive over there this weekend, to see if there’s anything new in the light displays. I remember that old building and the radio, too. We were able to pull off to the side of the road and enjoy it.
