Link Happy!

August 30, 2014

There is nothing I love more than a summer long weekend and this one just happens to involve a road trip to make it even better.  Ian and I are headed up to Niagara-on-the-Lake tomorrow which is one of our favourite places for a quick getaway. If you think Niagara is just about the falls and wine tours, think again.  There is SO much to do and see. We’ve gone to plays during the Shaw Festival, picnic’d in the bandshell park with goodies from the local shops, eaten at some pretty fantastic restaurants and had very relaxing pedicures at the spa.  And come spring next year, we’ll also be getting married there. 🙂

Our favourite hotel by far is the Shaw Club which is where we’ll be staying again this weekend. Their sister hotel, the Harbour House definitely comes a close second thanks to the fresh baked cookies in the hotel lobby, but nothing quite beats the service and ambience of the Shaw.  Plus it’s directly across from the Shaw theatre so you can’t beat it for location if you’re checking out a play.  Note: No this isn’t a paid advertisement (ha!).

This weekend is also Ian’s birthday so there will be some celebrating over dinner tomorrow night and the hotel is arranging a little surprise for the room as well. Between dinner and that surprise, there will definitely be a run on Monday morning and a whole lot of walking around town.  But my birthday motto has always been “go big or go home” and since we’re planning on spending the night, we better go big!

Early start tomorrow so we can get two full days in and around the Niagara region. Pictures to come!
