Unofficial start of Summer 2011
Yes, Summer doesn’t start until June 21, but this weekend and next weekend are the unofficial start of Summer in the tourist area of Niagara Falls. I would think that generally the industry likes it when Memorial Day and Victoria Day fall on different weekends, like this year.
It doesn’t seem like much was done over the winter that will be noticeable. There are some hotels and restaurants that changed names, but very little construction. Probably the one big one is Dinosaur Adventure Golf. It sure looks like it will open soon. The dinosaurs look amazing. The only drawback is that it will take a couple of years for the plants and trees to mature and give it a nicer “jungle” sort of look.
Based on the people I’ve seen around on the weekends in the last month or so, it seems like this summer could be strong. Let’s hope so!
