I scream, Hayley screams, we both scream from ice cream!!

Nothing is better than an ice cream on a hot summer day, therefore Hayley and I went out to search for the best ice cream in Niagara. Hayley had suggested we go to the Avondale Dairy Bar. So we got into “Bertha” (my mini-van) and began to travel to ice cream heaven. This famous ice cream parlour is found in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

With a slight right turn we arrived at our destination. I could not contain my excitement for one more moment. As soon as we entered the ice cream parlour I race to get in line and decide on the flavour of ice cream I want to get. I decide on mint chocolate chip; my very favourite ice cream flavour. As the ice cream dipped down my hands in the hot summer heat I felt just like a kid again.

Along with the array of ice cream flavours and the seating areas inside and outside the parlour, Avondale Dairy Bar also had swing sets for the kids to enjoy—even though we are no longer kids it was important for us to swing and eat our ice cream at the same time.

After cleaning myself up and throwing away my napkins, it was time to leave.  Although I was sad to leave, I was excited to visit again, which I am sure will happen more than once this summer.  It is important to make one of the things you do in Niagara Falls, Avondale Dairy Bar.

Great Eats in Port Dalhousie

Kilt & Clover RestaurantYou will never see a more beautiful place than Port Dalhousie, unless you’re travelling to Niagara Falls. Port Dalhousie is a great place to bring your family, enjoy the beaches, or even whet your palette at many of the main street and beach front restaurants. Hayley and I enjoyed dipping our toes into the not-so-warm lake (well I did, Hayley was being a bit of a chicken), as well as wiggling our toes in the warm beach sand.   We also had the pleasure of enjoying Port Dalhousie dining during our lunch hour…we chose Kilt and Clover.

Kilt and Cover had an amazing selection of entrees from fish and chips, burgers, and clubs. Hayley found it important to test out their fish and chips and I stuck to my favourite the club wrap; both amazing dishes with some ice cold pints to wash it down with.

It is important if you’re looking for things to do in Niagara Falls to check out Port. So pack a nice picnic lunch, or have a meal at one of the main street restaurants, you don’t want to miss out on this one.
