Shelburne VT to Niagara Falls Toronto scenic route

by burnzj

I plan on taking a Motorcycle trip to Alaska In the May to June timeframe. I would like to stop off in Niagara Falls Toronto. I would like to take a scenic route to get there. Does anyone know a good route or a webpage that would help me put a trip together. Thanks

Honestly, the US side of Lake Ontario is more scenic. You just follow Lake Ontario Parkway most of the way. It's actually very pretty. The way up there would be through the Adirondacks, which is even prettier. The Ontario side is very, very developed and is mostly freeway. Unless you're dead-set on visiting Toronto, then I would cross the border at Niagara Falls.

Shelburne is on US7. You can go south on US7 to vergennes, then take 22A south - pretty rolling hills with the Green Mountains on your left side all the way to the interstate at Fair Haven. Don't get on the interstate first. instead go through the village of Fair Haven, untouched by modern times with its huge village square bounded by classical buildings on the north and west and by its old brick buildings on thesouth side. take old US4 ( historic 4 ) west to pick up the interstate. the road surface is unchanged for 50 years, cement blocks. Follow 4 to whitehall, then left still on 4 along the Hudson Champlain canal to route 167 west to the northway. take the northway south to the NY Thruway and go west on the Tway to buffalo, then north to Niagara Falls.

Alternate - go north on US7 thru Burlington and Winooski to US2 north and west thru the spectacular Grand Isles, small islands in middle of Lake Champlain. see the llamas, stop at the snowflake winery, a road which has been bypassed by the interstates and is untravelled today. follow to the northway, then go north into canada and pick up the montreal - toronto highway, i believe canadian route 2 or 402. thru toronto, a great city to visit, and into niagara falls. this route is probably slower because of the highway between toronto and the falls being quite busy and congested.

Niagara Falls is on the south side of Lake Ontario, and Toronto is on the north side. To get from one to the other, you have to travel around the west end of the lake, about 75 miles.

the extra miles between toronto and niagara on the northern route sort of equate out the greater number of two lane highway miles on the southern route, especially route 167 in new york which can also get congested because of shopping malls.

As mentioned, the approach to NF is not particularly scenic from the Toronto direction, however, should you do this, get off the highway and head for Niagara-on-the-Lake and use the Niagara Parkway to enter NF. It's picturesque and goes through part of Ontario's wine country. Likewise leaving NF, do the reverse.

Let us know what you want to see.

The south side of Lake Ontario is a much shorter route. The north side of the lake through Canada is very flat and not too scenic.

Kingston Ont. is a neat place though.

This is a link to a freeze-frame camera mounted on the Sheraton Hotel overlooking the falls.
It snaps a still frame a few times per hour, every day, all year long so you can get an idea of the conditions in the area.

Canadian Horseshoe Falls

by OlenaKyiv

Canadian Falls or those that attouched to Canadian territory and look like a horseshow (or a moon for me) fall 52 metres (170 feet) into the Maid of the Mist Pool (compare to 21-34 metres (70 to 110 feet) of American Falls.

About 12,000 years ago, Niagara Falls was 11 kilometres (7 miles) downstream from its present position. Until the early 1950s, the Falls eroded at the average rate of one metre (3 feet) per year.

Since then, major water diversions have spread out the flow more evenly, slowing the rate of erosion at the Falls. These include the Sir Adam Beck #2 Generating Station (1954) on the Canadian side of the border, the Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant (1961) on the American side of the Niagara River, and the International Control Works (1954-1963).

It is suggested that now the rate of erosion could be as low as 30 centimetres (one foot) every ten years.

Inniskillin Winery

by bratinola1

This winery has great VQA wine. You can take a self guided tour of the winery, and then stop back in the boutique to sample some of their fabulous wines at the wine bar. The boutique also sells bottles of wine. Make sure to taste their ice wine. I think it ranges from $3 - $5 per tasting, but it is well worth it. Some of the best I've had. Bottles of the Ice wine range from $50 - $300 dollars, but can be purchased much cheaper at the Duty Free shop.

"walking distance to falls..."

by JoelAM

Many hotels advertise "walk to the falls" or "2 blocks..." or near the falls". Be careful here- these are deceiving. 2 blocks can be a LONG 2 blocks- including UP Clifton Hill returning to your hotel. And what is walking distance? everyone has their own idea of it. Your age, health, and weather has a lot to do with it. I actually measured the distance in my car- some places are 1/3 to 1/2 a mile away. And this was to the bottom of Clifton Hill-its even further to get a close look at the Horseshoe Falls. So don't assume you'll never need your car once you get here if your hotel says "walk to the falls"

Leisurely Dining With a Great View!

by Viajara about Skylon Tower

There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The restaurant revolves so that while you are dining you can view Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was good. Be sure to check out the observation deck after dining.
