Weekend Getaway | Niagara on the Lake

Barry and I absolutely love to travel.  So much so, that I firmly believe we work not to put food on the table, but instead to see the world (and photograph it!)

This past weekend, we took a trip to Niagara on the Lake to celebrate our seventh anniversary.  Niagara on the Lake is the cutest little town full of charm, wineries galore, boutique shopping and delightful farm-to-table dining.  We love wine tasting and dining, and for this reason, we have been to this region three times to experience everything it has to offer.

If you are considering taking a trip to Niagara on the Lake, feel free to reach out to me and I can give you some great restaurant, winery, and “things to do” recommendations!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from this weekend getaway…

I had an unusual experience at Herdner Estates.  As I was checking out their barn wedding venue, the door slammed closed behind me (there was not a breeze to shut it!)  The winery staff later informed me that friendly spirits reside in the barn.

Tim Hortons was our morning, noon, and evening coffee and snack break.  Love those Timbits.
