Niagara Falls in Motion Video

No Comments

I first saw this video on the Clifton Hill Blog, and have since had someone else email me a link to it as well.

This is a very cool time-lapse video hosted by Vimeo by Matthew Wartman of various parts of the Niagara Falls tourist area. Very well done!

2 Days @ Niagara Falls!

No Comments

From the Seasee Travel Blog:

After a fab little free city tour on my shuttle to my hotel (free because it was a airport shuttle that went via niagara fallsview and I didn’t get dropped off first- again, no complaints here!), I arrived at my palace of choice that would comfort me for the next 3 blissful days! I chose this hotel, the Doubletree Fallsview because I didn’t want to stay in an ordinary looking run of the mill hotel. This was built as a Canadian Mountain Lodge Spa Retreat! Complete with Aveda Day Spa, jacuzzi and friendly service (ooh and the fab little free choccie cookies you get when you check in – so good I got extras!)…

Niagara’s wonderland: Icewine and frozen waterfalls

No Comments

From the National Post:

The outing: Head to the Niagara region for winery tours, the spectacular falls, a giant New Year’s Eve party or make a date for mid-January and the icewine harvest.

Why it will make your holiday sparkle: Wine and holiday spirit undoubtedly go together. So, what better way to enjoy a uniquely Canadian holiday than drinking icewine in the scenic Niagara Valley, the world’s largest producer of this sweet dessert wine?

Doubletree Niagara Falls Visited By Olympic Torch Relay

1 Comment

Earlier this week I was sent this by the Doubletree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton:

The City of Niagara Falls was selected as one of only 200 host celebrations communities across Canada for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Torch Relay.

On Sunday, December 20, the Olympic Flame passed in front of the Doubletree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton, with hundreds of spectators cheering it on. The longest Olympic Torch Relay to take place in a single country began its route in Victoria, British Columbia. The Olympic Flame will travel by land, air and water during its 106 day journey.

The Niagara Falls celebration coincided with the Doubletree Holiday Staff Party and presented the opportunity for team members to have their photo taken with the torch after the relay, and to view the special Olympic fireworks display from the event room hosting the staff party. One of the two relay runners who were guests at the Doubletree, included Hilton HHonors Diamond VIP member, Denzil Croning.

Truck crash at Fallsview Casino entrance

You may have heard about this on the news this morning. Apparently a truck that was trying to get away from the police crashed into the front doors of the Fallsview Casino.

I stopped by the casino and they are already well on their way to getting things cleaned up:
