About Girl in Niagara

Thank you for taking the time to get to know what Girl in Niagara is all about.  I was inspired to start this blog as a way to share with you all the wonderful things found in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada.  I have lived in the region for two decades and have fallen in love with this place – it’s more famous touristy sites and its special nooks and crannies.

Niagara is so much more than just the world famous Niagara falls.  Though we house one of the great natural wonders of the world, Niagara is also home to many award-winning wineries, beautiful nature trails, culinary delights, heritage homes, gardens, waterways, geologic wonders, and incredible historic significance due to the war of 1812, which defined our borders with America.  I share all of these with you right here at Girl in Niagara.

My further inspiration comes from a recent trip to Tuscany.  It is uncanny how many commonalities Niagara shares with Tuscany.  My first ever post discusses those similarities.  I returned from that trip to Italy grateful for having experienced the beautiful Tuscan region, and ever more grateful for being able to live in Niagara.

While in Tuscany, Italy, I had the pleasure of discovering the blog of Girl in Florence.  Now you know where the name comes from, because I’m far from a girl.  Her blog is full of the wonders of Florence and beyond.  And I was thrilled to discover it, so that I could discover all that Florence and Tuscany had to offer.  I hope to help you discover Niagara in the same way Georgette’s blog helped me discover Florence.

This blog, Girl in Niagara is just for fun, a way for me to share with you my travel stories, photography, and a bit of a creative outlet from my regular day job. My hope is that you will find Niagara as fascinating and exciting as I do.
