Vacation -5

After doing the typical touristy stuff at Niagara, we had a day to do something else and we were thinking about a trip into Toranto but later decided against it and headed out to the African Lion Safari.

It is a type of zoo where you drive through the gardens and watch the animals from the confines of your car. It is a bit more exciting than the usual behind-the bars animals as you get to see them move. We were in time to see the elephants enjoy a bath and R had a field day! And his photos are here and here.

And on our way back to Niagara Falls, we stopped at Niagara-on-the-lake. A quaint town with a laid-back feel. Bed and Breakfasts, vineyards and wineries are all over the place has all the makings of a romantic getaway. If you are looking forward for a quiet place to vacation and yet be close to the touristy thing, I would surely recommend you stay at Niagara-on-the-lake and head out to Niagara Falls for some action in the evenings.

This is the last in the series of our Summer 2007 getaway!
