Changes at Lodge Inn & Suites yet again

2 Comments

I mentioned last week that there were some changes happening at Lodge Inn & Suites again. Well, it looks like they have changed their name again. The main part of the building will be part of Baymont Inn & Suites. The smaller motel part looks like it will stay as Lodge Inn & Suites.

New place to chill in Niagara Falls

No Comments

WIVB has information (including a video) about the new Snow Park in Niagara Falls, NY:

The hottest new place to chill is now open for business.

Snow Park in Niagara Falls held its official grand opening Saturday.

The park features a skating rink, tubing hill and play zone made of real snow.

From the Buffalo News:

Hiking the Niagara River Gorge trail, where Niagara Falls began more than 12,000 years ago, can be a breathtaking experience—in more ways than one. But if you want to get closer to nature, let your feet take you there.

“Looking down on the river was incredible, the smells, the sounds, the wildlife,” said Debbie Gondek, 47, of North Tonawanda. “The sound of the river got louder and louder as the trail progressed until the full force of the Niagara came out.”

From the National Post:

If Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake were to be embodied by two grumpy old men and played in a movie, The Odd Couple would be the perfect film. Niagara Falls, uncouth, out-of-fashion and badly in need of a new coat of paint, would be Oscar; while Niagara-on-the-Lake would be Felix, stuck-up, tony and impossibly austere.

“They do a good job for the high-end, wealthy Victorian type,” says R.T. (Ted) Salci, 60, mayor of Niagara Falls. “Our neighbours will pay $6 for a hot dog, but we don’t go for that here.”

However, the lines between Oscar and Felix may be blurring. As Niagara Falls redevelops its downtown and Niagara-on-the-Lake lowers its rents and slashes prices, the twin tourist destinations less than two hours from Toronto are in the midst of a season of change.
