my southern ontario trip: st. catharines & niagara falls

The day after the concert, my family and I left to see more of Southern Ontario. Before heading to St. Catharines, my dad took us to the University of Guelph and McMaster University so I could tour some of the campuses to help me decide where I wanted to apply when grade 12 came around. U of Guelph’s track was beautiful and it’s a big running school (yay!), but I really enjoyed McMaster’s campus and Hamilton seems like a nice city.

After, we headed down to St. Catharines to check into our hotel. 

The next day we drove to Niagara Falls (which was only 20 minutes away, yay). I hadn’t been there since I was 4 or 5. The weather was nice and it was a great day to see the Falls. My dad, my sister, and I took a ride to the top of the Skylon Tower.

The view was awesome!

We were all hungry after that and I was craving Italian, so we walked until we came across Romano’s Macaroni Grill. I ordered the Meat Lover’s Pizza. Yum! The food was really good, but I can’t say the same about the service. There were only three other tables filled and our server took forever. Disappointing. Later we decided to take a look in the Niagara Falls outlets. My mom and I went to the Coach outlet to just browse at what we couldn’t have…and then we both left with a purse. The store had a 50% off special, so my purse ended up being $150. Still pricey, but I was in need of a new bag that would last. I don’t regret buying it. It can convert into a cross-body which I like and the colour is beautiful.

After some dinner at the hotel, we decided to a bit of shopping at the Pen Centre in St. Catharines. The mall was quite nice and I was especially happy because they had Campus Crew (I live near very few) I loved the NHL hoodies they had there, but I was not willing to pay full price. Everything else was on sale and I ended up buying a pair of white cutoffs for $12.99! Our last stop was Winners and I wasn’t expecting anything great. I was surprised when I found a knock-off Brandy Melville “I Love You to the Moon and Back” crop top for $12.99. I was happy! 

*stay tuned for my collective haul post on monday!*
