As you wake up and wonder how your going to pull this off, hop into your car, drive to Tim Hortons (which in the Niagara Region is located at a multitude of corners) and order a coffee and breakfast sandwich. Total cost of your breakfast doesn’t even put a dent into your spending limit, just a mere $4.22 for the delicious warm coffee and tasty breakfast sandwich. As you drive back, stop at the Niagara River to enjoy a little piece and quite. Bring a book or Frisbee here and watch as the many early morning risers are out for their daily walk or run. Seeing as you are at the Niagara River a free activity to partake in here is to walk through the Niagara Gorge. So when your stomach is nice and full from the coffee and breakfast sandwich its time to burn some calories for free. The gorge is a beautiful walk that can be done within a couple of hours.
