After spending five days in Chicago, we started our road trip to Canada. On the road trip, we stopped at Toronto and Niagara Falls. We had always wanted to see the Falls from Canada side and it was much more spectacular than we ever expected.
Our first stop in Toronto was CN Tower. When we arrived, it was about dinner time. So we decided to have the dinner at “360 The Restaurant” at the top of CN Tower which was not in our plan at the beginning. But we were so glad we did it. We waited about one hour to get the table by the window so we could enjoy the magnificent revolving view of Toronto from more than 1,151 ft height while having our meals.
Like I mentioned it in my previous post here, my boys planned the trip with my husband. We went to several museum in Toronto like we did in Chicago, because they all love museums. They can stay at museums all day. I asked my younger son why he likes museum so much. He answered, ” because there are so many things to explore.” I love to see my boys who were observing everything with their curious eyes. I was really surprised that they can remember the names of different kinds of dinosaurs when we visited Royal Ontario Museum. Besides the museum, we also visited Toronto Zoo and Casa Loma before heading to Niagara Falls. I have to say that I really impressed by the history and the architectural design of Casa Loma.

My favorite summer outfit on repeat. I would love to clothe a nice dress and play as a princess who escapes from the tower of Casa Loma. However, when I packed my travel outfits, casual and comfy are my priority. See this outfit details from here.

After spending couple days exploring Toronto, finally we came to Niagara Falls. Needless to say, who would not stunned by this magnificent phenomenon created by Mother Nature. We were very lucky to see the beautiful rainbow.

It was Friday when we got to Niagara Falls. We thought we might not be able to see the firework. After we checked in, we found out our room is at 26th floor with beautiful view of the Falls. So, we were be able to see the firework from our hotel room. That was another surprise to us.

The trip was ended from where we started. We drove back to Chicago to fly home. On the way back to Chicago, we stopped at Cleveland, OH and Indianapolis, IN. Another nice surprise was having lunch at the German Village in Columbus, OH. We also spent some time at Indiana Dunes National Park to enjoy the nice beach of Lake Michigan before going back Chicago.
We love traveling. Especially we love traveling with our kids. Traveling together really helps us to bond. Looking forward to next journey.
