My first trip seeing snow and I mean actual, you can run and jump and be knee high in snow, snow. Being from Florida, my poor hands and feet can't handle that kind of weather for too long before I have to go inside somewhere and thaw out. I think I got out of the car multiple times to just go run in fields of snow, I was seriously like a little child. 
This trip was a short and sweet trip for New Years Eve. Although we only had a few days to explore the city, I feel like we hit a lot of great areas and saw a good amount! See below for details.

Day 2

Since Niagara Falls was about 2 hours from Toronto, we decided to rent a car for the day and drive down there. I absolutely loved finally being able to see Niagara falls and while we were there, snow began falling down like crazy. To me, this was an absolute dream (at first) and then my jeans got wet and I was freezing... aka missing that Florida weather.
