The Ingagliatos

Happy belated birthday Tony! Yes, Tony turned 29 in May but we JUST got around to his birthday weekend. My present to him this year was a trip to Niagara Falls and his first time in Canada! Crossing off bucket list items, one trip at a time! A lot of people have asked us to send them our itinerary for this trip, so I figured it would be easiest to just write it all in a blog post.

Niagara Falls is a nine hour drive from our home in Southern Maryland, and because Tony didn’t want to take off both Thursday and Friday, we left from home Thursday when he got home from work and drove half way, staying in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. The next morning we were well rested and hit the road to drive the remaining 4 hours to Niagara, New York! I got us a room at the CUTEST little bed and breakfast called The Red Coach Inn – which is located RIGHT on the river and less than a mile to any of the main attractions including the Canadian Border.

Thursday was our “falls” day, so we did the Cave of the Winds which was enough tourist/crowds that we wanted to handle for the day, so we headed back to the B&B and hung out for the rest of the night!

Friday we woke up and set off to Canada! You DO need a passport to get into Canada, and they interrogate you and take your Mace. So lessoned learned y’all – don’t bring your Mace. All in all, getting into Canada was pretty easy. We drove about 20 minutes to a winery called Colaneri Estate Winery where we did a tasting and sat on the front of the building enjoying the awesome cool weather. The place made you feel like you were in Italy or Napa! It was definitely great for photos and the people who worked there are just the sweetest. After our tasting, we wanted to grab some lunch before we drove back to America, so we stopped at Ravine Vineyard for some small plates where I had some amazing oysters and Tony’s zucchini soup was to die for! This place was SUPER crowded and we could only eat at the bar with a limited menu which was disappointing but the bar menu was delicious!

That night, I had booked us a sailing cruise that I found off of Groupon on Lake Erie out of Buffalo, New York. Captain Skip was awesome, the weather was fantastic, we even grabbed some sandwiches for our dinner and were able to eat on the boat as we watched the sunset. This was the highlight of the trip for me for sure!
