It's hard to believe that Christmas is only a week away, and then we will be ushered into a new year. No matter what you're celebrating in the next couple of weeks, it's a wonderful holiday season to connect with loved ones and participate in the many festivities taking place in the city, and especially in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
If you want to experience a magical, nearby winter getaway between now and January 31, 2017, then Niagara Falls, is the place to visit! It's only about a 90-minute drive from Toronto and it will be well worth your while.
Capture the breath-taking views of the colorfully lit up (and sometimes frozen) Canadian and U.S. Falls at night. It's something you will not want to miss!
