Since 1925, Niagara Falls have been illuminated in the colours of the rainbow. It is a truly magnificent sight to see immense torrents of water tearing headlong down the towering falls to the boiling water below. We were overwhelmed by the mighty roar as emerald green, translucent water rushed over the crest, enveloping us in misty spray. It was just as spectacular during the daylight.
During the summer season Niagara on the Lake is famous for the Shaw Festival. It is a picturesque town, famous for vineyards, elegant boutiques and top of the range art and fashion houses. We were intrigued by the beautiful Romance Gallery of renowned Canadian Artist, Trisha Romance.
We would advise visitors to the Falls to stay at least a couple of nights in Niagara on the Lake. It is only a 60 minute drive along the scenic route through the vineyards and parklands to the Falls.
