Niagara Falls Trip
Last year (still feels awkward to say) we decided to spend our second getaway in Buffalo, NY. We loved our previous trip in New Hampshire so much that we wanted to do another surround-yourself-in-nature type of trip. Since we both hadn’t been to Niagara Falls in a long long time, we chose to drive up north to see the falls. It was a long 6 hour drive but honestly it wasn’t boring at all for us- we enjoyed it so much; getting away from the city and just cruising with music blasting out. The first night we were there, the skies were all sorts of colors and it was breathtaking to see. We stayed at Hyatt Regency which was within walking distance of Niagara Falls. It also had a restaurant inside so it was convenient for us.
The next day we explored to the other side of the Falls (not the Canada side) called, Luna Island. From there we could get closer to the waters and really feel how grand and magnificent it was. This trip really was all about Niagara Falls. We went back to the falls on our last night. It had a totally different vibe at night with all the lights on and the background of Toronto.
We discovered a restaurant called Savor at Niagara Falls Culinary Institute. We had high hopes going in since students from the Culinary Institute work there and the reviews were amazing. Needless to say, it was a wonderful dining experience- our server was extremely nice and professional and the foods were exceptional. We would definitely go back there when we are in town again. On the way back home, we drove through a charming town called Skaneateles. It had just started snowing when we got to the town so we got out of the car and walked along the little shops for a bit. The atmosphere of Skaneateles was straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie.
