Niagara Falls with your Toddler



My parents and I had the best time at the Niagara Falls! You know, there is more than one Niagara Falls as I have cleverly discovered! Niagara Falls, Ontario, is located across the river from Niagara Falls, New York, with the famous waterfalls located between the two cities.

We visited both, the US and Canadian side (which would be my second time traveling internationally and I’m not even 2 years old yet!)! However, the US vs. the Canadian side couldn’t be any more different from each other, for instance, the Canadian side is more commercialized and touristy, whereas the US side is a lot calmer. We went for long walks on the US side which gave me the opportunity to experience the falls up-close and watch the fireworks on Friday night!

If you have a toddler like me I would recommend staying on the US side because it’s like an enormous, un-gated theme park! Instead of fairy tales or cartoon characters – you get to experience the Niagara Falls! They are so powerful, it not only attracts toddlers like me but many visitors from all over the world!

Happy Vacation!

Road Trip With Your Toddler

Greetings from Niagara Falls!


My parents and I love adventures, in fact, we love it so much (!) that we went on a road trip to the Niagara Falls!

I’m aware that a road trip with your tot(s) doesn’t sound as appealing at first – but I’ve listed a few things below that might help you make your trip as relaxed as possible!

Things You Need for the Car Ride

  1. Snacks, lots of snacks!
  2. Juice boxes
  3. Antibacterial wipes, i.e. baby wipes for your hands after eating, diaper changes (you get the picture)
  4. Sunshades, if your car doesn’t have them
  5. Music for toddlers (we don’t like the music you listen to except for “Gangnam Style”)
  6. Diaper bag
  7. Extra clothing
  8. Paper towels
  9. Interactive toys (I brought my LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer)
  10. Books

Other Thoughts

Be sure to plan your route and where you might want to eat (Subway, McDonalds, etc.). Also, give your toddler(s) pit stops to stretch. No one likes to sit in one spot for large amounts of time, even parents!

Happy Traveling!
