Whether your flavour is heading up a wine tour at Niagara-on-the-Lake or basking in the natural mist of the wondrous falls, Niagara is just one of the many weekend adventure destinations you can visit with GO Transit this season! This past weekend I grabbed my beloved mountain bike and took advantage of the special bike coaches on the Niagara train running on Saturdays and Sundays. I was so glad to utilize this efficient mode of travel and then hop off at my destination and begin exploring.
It was so nice to not only get a ride to the falls, but also to not have to worry about parking and driving from place to place once I arrived. Interestingly, as a Toronto native I’ve been to Niagara Falls plenty of times, but this time was a completely different experience. I felt so liberated riding along the strip, and, once having reached the falls, actually going along the full stretch, stopping along the way to snap photos and reach further parts that I may have never found had been on foot. I also never before realized how many great angles there were to view the waterfalls!
And just the sheer power behind the falls leaves me in awe every single time. I mean, it being the most powerful waterfall in North America and all…
Needless to say, although an afternoon in scenic wine country would have beenequally enjoyable, this made for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Especially since I was able to locate the cutest little Italian spot on the strip for a delicious bowl of Fettucine Al Fredo con Funghi – bellissimo! After this lovely day getaway, I’m very much enticed to plan more Ontario adventures. There is so much to see and do, and as a Canadian it’s top priority to enjoy the beautiful summer weather when it comes around! I’d also enjoy heading up to Barrie and check out some of their picturesque sights, hiking trails, and horseback riding. What I really appreciate is that I can simply jump on a GO Train next weekend and delve into another fun trip experience!
We live for the weekends, especially during the summer. And planning them is just half the fun. Exploring the big city or biking through wine country – it’s good to have weekend options and we give them to you. Toronto to Niagara. Barrie to Toronto. Either way, we’ll take you there. Seasonal weekend train service runs until Sept 7. Discover a different side of GO this summer at gotransit.com/getaway
