The final part of our trip: Canada! The drive from my house to Niagara Falls is about 5.5-6 hours either way – driving through Pennsylvania/New York, or driving through Canada/Michigan. So we decided to head through Canada on the way back, so we could check another country off our list!
Crossing the border took 30-45 minutes both times.
A short drive later, and we arrived at our destination: Toronto!
Downtown Toronto was SO pretty!
The kids loved the moose on the juice.
We went to the top of the magnificent CN Tower!
And we stood on the famous glass floor!
Connor lying down on the glass floor.
Lia wasn’t so sure about it.
Connor got attacked by a bear in the gift shop!!!
And we saw an awesome Lego replica of the tower there, too.
Outside: Dusty Crophopper!!! Finn would have LOVED this.
Next, we went to the old steam engine yard.
And we rode a mini steam engine around.
Even the playground was shaped like a train!
Then, we went to the harbor and put our feet in the water.
And looked at all the different kinds of boats.
Last, we went to a Chinese heritage festival, because we’ve been studying ancient China in history class. While we were there, we got to make REAL Chinese kites. (for free!)
And check out the ancient Chinese clothing!
After our day in Toronto, we went back to our hotel and enjoyed the pool. The next day we grabbed some Tim Horton’s (of course) and headed home! We missed Byron, Sophie, and Finn, but we had a GREAT time!
