HOW TO PLAN A WEEKEND GETAWAY TO NIAGARA

Updated: Nov 19, 2023

This blog is about what I did to plan a weekend getaway to Ontario for the famous Niagara Falls from Vancouver. My main focus was on the weather hence I chose a sunny weekend. Sunny day suits you best for photography.

After almost two years of living in BC, I had to make this plan because…..why not?

Niagara Falls


ITINERARY

So my travel plan was to land in Toronto on Saturday and stay there for two nights. From the Pearson Airport, I headed straight towards Downtown Toronto where I met some of my friends. I loved the downtown of Toronto, especially the billboards on Yonge and Dundas Street, which gave NYC vibes. I had reserved a dorm bed in Samesun Hostel in advance but due to some changes in the plan I had to skip my stay at the hostel.



The next day I had a bus to catch for Niagara Falls leaving from the Union bus terminal downtown. I booked the bus ticket online in advance, you will see all the links for bookings and reservations in the next segment. It was a two hours journey with one stop on the way. The bus terminal in Niagara was around 4 km from Niagara Falls. You can take a bus or walk for 4 km along the Niagara River until you reach the waterfalls. It was sunny so I preferred walking. After reaching there, I got to know that Niagara Falls comprises a total of three waterfalls: American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. From Niagara Falls, I went to Cliffton Hill to kill the hunger. Finally, boarded the bus back to Toronto.


The next day I had my return flight so before leaving for the airport, I decided to explore a few more spots Downtown like Harbourfront, CN tower, Roundhouse Park(Railway Museum), etc. I clicked some pictures and recorded video content for my GoPro as well.
