Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:
I had been to Niagara Falls over 20 years ago as a child with my parents. At the time, they seemed huge. Now, as an adult, they are beautiful and romantic, but not inspiring.
It’s sad to see what much of the Canadian side has become. Clifton Hill and the surrounding area is block after block of bad fast food and souvenir shops. The quaint charm of most Canadian cities is given way to the worst forms of American Yankee commercialism. Forget romance. It’s sad really.
