Any time we go away, I always try to visit a local grocery store. 1, to buy a few inexpensive breakfast items and 2, to scope out what food items are particular to that local area. We totally scored during our visit to Canada last week. Swipe through the pictures to see all the goodies that came home with us (*unusual potato chip flavors are definitely a thing there; the buffalo wings with bleu cheese are SO good).
On our last day of Spring Break, we visited the Seneca Park Zoo in New York. Not too small, not too big, it was just about perfect. Elephants, lions, hyenas ... but we could have stayed for hours just watching the otter swim laps. Just.too.cute.
For the past few days, the Hilton Fallsview in Niagara has been our home away from home. A swimming pool, #UnicornFrappuccinos on the ground floor, kids eat free at the delicious in-house Italian restaurant, and gift shop clerks who help us scour for the best thing to fight migraines. We scored a great deal on #LivingSocial, and this centrally located hotel was the perfect home base to our #NiagaraFalls adventures.
We seriously ate in the clouds last night. The Skylon Tower has a revolving dining room, and literally every time you look up from your plate, it's a different view. It does it slowly, taking a full hour to make one complete rotation. We took advantage of the early bird special so we could enjoy this awesomeness in Niagara.
But where's the food, you ask. Oh don't you worry. Asking the locals where THEY go for poutine whilst in Canada was on my list, and their recommendation did not disappoint. A quiet, unassuming little food truck in a grocery store parking lot yielded this serious hit of deliciousness. Go big or go home!
