Brick City on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls

On Clifton Hill, in the building that was formerly the Adventure Dome, a new attraction is now open:

Brick City
Created with LEGO bricks
Explore a city built entirely with LEGO bricks

We stopped in today and spoke to the cashier. She said that the “city” is built from over half a million LEGO bricks. There are 16 trains and over 1,000 little LEGO people. The Taj Mahal is in the city along with the CN Tower (10 ft tall).
It costs $7.99 for adults to get in. And you are allowed to take pictures. It looks nice. Hopefully we’ll have a chance to go inside.

Niagara Falls Construction Update

No Comments

There is a bunch of road work being done around the main tourist areas in Niagara Falls. When you first get into the Falls via Stanley Avenue, there are 2 different sections of the road where they are replacing the water mains or something. On the weekends this messes up the traffic.
There is also work underway on the Niagara Parkway, right in front of the falls. This looks like it’s almost done.

Blogging seems to be so huge right now, but when I did a search for Niagara Falls blogs there was nothing. So I’m either blind, or this is the first Niagara Falls blog. I’d rather take the credit for coming up with the first Niagara Falls blog than admit I’m blind, so I’ve appropriately named the blog “Niagara Falls Blog”.

As I mention in the description, I work in Niagara Falls, and each day go for a lengthy walk at lunch. I see construction, new attractions, the weather, etc. I’ll blog about what I see going on along with any other general observations and interesting facts I can come up with.
