From the Buffalo News:

Tickle your imagination with high society from the glory days of the Falls. Pack your brain with forgotten history about some of the oldest buildings in the city, some built during the Civil War and others even older. Discover ornate designs of houses and mansions that prominent industrialists from a bygone era once called home.

About two dozen sites and structures are featured on a new walking tour in downtown Niagara Falls with stories of culture, history and architecture…

The first tour was given Aug. 20, and tours will be running through October.

From Global News:

Have you ever wanted to experience the Maid of the Mist tour of Niagara Falls without being dampened–sometimes drenched–by actual mist?

How about the Calgary Zoo without the line-ups or odorous animals?

Google Maps unveiled virtual visits of more than 50 new Canadian destinations in its Street View feature Tuesday.

It looks pretty cool!

From the Buffalo News:

The Niagara Global Tourism Institute, an initiative led by Niagara University to “transform the regional tourism industry,” opened Friday in the Power City Building in downtown Niagara Falls.

The institute will use the university’s expertise in hospitality and tourism management “to enhance Niagara Falls’ tourism industry,” according to a Niagara University statement.

A recent CNN iReport was about Niagara Falls (including a few pictures):

There are two cities in the world that bear the name Niagara Falls. The first city is Niagara Falls, New York, which is a part of the Buffalo, NY Metropolitan Area. On the other side (to the northwest) of the Niagara River, lies Niagara Falls, Ontario in Canada. Both of these cities have charming attractions that tourists will love, but the primary attraction of the region are the Niagara Falls themselves.

I recently found an old coupon on the ground for Hooters. Hooters used to be part of the Baymont Inn, but the hotel has changed to a Quality Inn & Suites.

Note: If you follow the link to Hooters, you’ll see that they spelled Niagara wrong (Niagra).

Hooters coupon card front 450x255

I’m sure this coupon is not valid anymore given how old it is.

From Yahoo! Australia:

With more than 2.2 million litres of water plunging over its edge each second, the sheer power of the Niagara Falls is humbling to behold. However, while I expected to be awed by such a tremendous force of nature, I was ill prepared for the full extent of its beauty. Clear and glacial green, the Niagara River falls in curtains to Whirlpool Bay. Its lace border of white, foamy spray, in juxtaposition to the massive falling river, is nature conforming to the aesthetic rules of feng shui. The delicacy of the foam is accentuated by the contrast to the thundering torrents beneath it.
