Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:
The streets near Niagara Falls remind me of the Edmonton Ex. Wall to wall families, lots of weird things to see and buy, but generally a fun atmosphere. It obviously is a family vacation destination.
As part of the massive Hilton expansion, a few new restaurants are also being added into the mix. Romano’s Macaroni Grill opened earlier this summer, and a sign just went up for the new Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse. No shortage of places to eat up in this tourist district now.
The new IHOP, which was mentioned recently in another posting’s comments, is now open. This is located at the Fallsview Plaza Hotel on Fallsview Blvd. I wonder if the second image below is where the new Dave & Busters will be located?
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Most drivers hate getting a parking ticket, but the majority of people who receive them in Niagara Falls do pay for their fines.
Even those who live out-of-province or in the United States, which are sometimes much harder to collect.
“Most people are pretty good about it,” said Sue Wheeler, manager of parking operations for the city of Niagara Falls.
In 2008, a total of 26,280 tickets were given out which equals roughly $556,000 in revenue.

Another marvellous view of the falls, with the maid of the mist boat right in the middle. The maid of the mist boat is the most popular ride there, which takes you right in the centre of the falls and this experience of being there for few minutes is simply mindblowing.
I first heard about this on the Clifton Hill blog…
Apparently Alexissonfire has a new song out called “Young Cardinals”. The video was filmed here in Niagara Falls on Maid of the Mist. They’ve posted a YouTube video of behind the scenes shots. Note: You have to click the HQ button in order to hear the proper audio.
