    If you haven’t heard about this, you still have time…

    If you are a Niagara resident, you can go to the top of the Skylon Tower for free until Friday. We went up as a family this past Saturday, and it was pretty easy. We walked in with our kids. Both my wife and I showed our ID and we all got to go. They didn’t try to upsell us on anything. We just got to go.

    I’ll post some pictures later…

    From the Toronto Sun:

    No trip to Niagara Falls, Ont. would be complete for families without a visit to world-famous Marineland.

    Located less than one mile from the falls on Portage Road, Marineland is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

    My late wife, Diane and I took our two children -Tammy and Todd – to this amazing attraction several times over the years. My children are now taking their children for visits to Marineland.
