Road Trip 2022 - Niagara Falls, ON

Our theme for the 2022 Colour of the Month is a Road Trip Across Canada. We'll be stopping at some of our favourite destinations, and exploring some new places that we've always wanted to visit! Join us for a fun and informative adventure as we celebrate our wonderful and diverse country.

This month our Cross Canada Road Trip takes us to what is known as “the Honeymoon Capital of the World.” In 1801, the daughter of US Vice President Aaron Burr and her new husband (Theodosia Burr Alston andJoseph Alston) were the first recorded couple to honeymoon at Niagara Falls, and this spectacular location has been a tourist destination ever since.

What is known as Niagara Falls is actually a group of three waterfalls on the Niagara River, between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. The American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls are on the American side of the international border, while the much larger Horseshoe Falls is mostly on the Canadian side. Horseshoe Falls is about 57m (187 ft) high and 790m (2590 ft) wide and is the most powerful waterfall in North America, with a peak flow rate of 6,400 cubic m (230,000 cubic feet) per second. Spectacular, eh?
