As some of you will know I was fortunate to holiday in Canada on numerous occasions, staying with friends who live and work in Toronto and with two fantastic people as tour guides I couldn't go wrong.

For my first visit back in 2003, one of the highlights of my holiday was my three-day visit to Niagara Falls more precisely the Niagara Region. Both my friends knew the region well considering both had relatives in the area and had visited the Falls many, many times before, so who better to show me the splendours of the resort. Niagara Falls has a multitude of attractions, sights and events, far too many to record here but I shall endeavour to recount some of those places I visited and those attractions I experienced with a little history and fact thrown in for good measure.
