Oh Canada, how I love you so! I love that Canada is literally a 30 minute drive from my home. The boyfriend and I love taking mini get-a-ways to this beautiful country because there is so much to do and see. A couple weeks ago we bought a groupon for a wine/beer tour with Niagara Fun Tours. We had a blast and sampled delicious local beer & wine.
Our favorite stop was at the Silversmith Brewing Company. They were not open yet, but they did offer sampling of their black lager which had a taste of something like coffee or dark chocolate. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I wish we could have brought some home with us!

Another really cool thing about this Brewing Company is that they will be opening up shop inside an old church! When we pulled up I was immediately in awe. It is such a beautiful building. I am a sucker for architecture and little details.
LOVE LOVE LOVED the hardwood floors and the stained glass windows. Aren't they beautiful?!
After our wine/beer tour we checked ourselves into the Hilton, which had a beautiful view of Niagara Falls. Having lived in Buffalo my whole life, I have seen the falls so many times that I can't keep track. However, every time I come to the falls I am in a trance. It's so beautiful! Maybe that's that artist in me - I appreciate all the little things that take your breathe away!
All in all - this mini get away was much needed! We love Canada! :-) We will be back soon.
