Toronto is literally a concrete jungle! We were all quite amazed at the extent of highrise and freeway networks clogging this city. Such a shame as it is on the shore of beautiful Lake Ontario but the metropolis completely blocks out the views unless you manage to get down to the shore. I'm sure Toronto has much to offer but at first glance it is buried in concrete.
Niagara Falls is our main intent here and we organised a tour on the internet earlier in the year. So step ...
... side of Niagara falls, which required a 3hr round trip the next day, just what you need in 90c heat and on your day off! The second issue was that the hotel in Boston that I sent the clothes to doesn't have any rooms available for me - what a plonker. So my trip to buy one shirt turned into a rather badly thought out 5hr excursion but I was able to dress well for dinner!
It had been a great day, one of the best of the trips and it will live long in the memory.
... two things;
1: On the down side, all the good trips and tours into and under the falls were closed.
2: On the plus side, there were a lot less tourists around so we got a better view.
The winter schedule also gave us the opportunity to see what happens when the mist rises up from the falls and freezes wherever it lands which made for some for some winter wonderful looking photos.
Knowing that Niagara was to be our last stop ...
... but it was still ages until my train, so I went to the Science Museum. It was pretty tacky, but had just enough interactivity and err "charm" to keep me amused the last few hours. And I found five bucks outside, sweet.
Got into Buffalo that evening. It made a good first impression with it's tram/pedestrian-oriented main street. The hostel was reasonable too, and there was actually somewhere to get food.
Character (or any other "C" word you care ...
I must admit I didn't spend much time in Buffalo, as it was just a place where we spent the night during our weekend at the Niagara Falls. The Hotel was great anyway: probably one of the best beds I've ever slept in! It's not in the town centre (closer to Lake Erie) but from the windows, I got a great view of the town. Great value for your money!
