    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.
    You can get road construction updates from the City of Niagara Falls at
