    Clifton Hill – “The Most Fun by the Falls!”

    1 Comment

    A photographer with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

    After shooting more pictures of both the American Falls and Horseshoes Falls then I would ever need but seemingly unable to stop taking “just one more” shot of the beautifully illuminated falls, I finally convinced myself that enough was enough and pointed my feet in the direction of Clifton Hill for the trek back up to my car which I had parked not too far from the base of Skylon Tower.

    He took some fantastic night pictures of Clifton Hill that you should check out.

    Someone with a Blogger blog has posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls and Great Wolf Lodge:

    Last night, we spent a night away from home. We are on vacation this week and for our vacation, we wanted to go away, for at least one night.

    Our decision? Great Wolf Lodge! This little magical place was the perfect solution to our need to get away, but for cheap, and for only an overnight (dog kennels cost a fortune these days!).

    Ella and I decided to tag along on Will’s business trip to Niagara Falls for the week. A last minute mini vacation with just the three of us. Niagara Falls was just what I had expected, gorgeous waterfall surrounded by tons of amusements! Ella and I went on long walks everyday along the falls enjoying the fresh air!

    An insider’s look at Niagara — through a social-media lens

    Sometimes I’m really good at getting things up on the blog in a timely manner, and sometimes I’m not. This is an example of how I’m not…

    For months now, regular visitor Adam White has told me that he was working on an exciting new Niagara Falls and area web site. You may remember Adam as the one I did the video with. Anyway, over the last few months Adam didn’t give me any details, but said he was very excited about the new site. Then last week he emailed me and said it was live.

    In his first posting, he said the launch of CheckInNiagara.com is about 6 months late. He was kind enough to mention me along with other area bloggers, and said that I have my “finger on the pulse of the tourist sector in the Falls”. Cool! I had intended to post about the site, but just haven’t yet. I kind of pride myself in getting some scoops, but unfortunately, I left this one too late. The Niagara Falls Review beat me to it and has a nice article about it.

    All the best to you Adam… I hope the site is successful for you!

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Social-media entrepreneur Adam White is armed with a $150 HD flip video camcorder, a tripod and a good idea: Head to Niagara’s hidden gems, off the well-worn tourist track, videotape himself and broadcast it on YouTube and a new website he’s created called checkinniagara.com.

    Oh yeah, and ask locals to chime-in and suggest places the 28-year-old computer software developer from Niagara Falls should scope out next.

    Think of it as a cross between location-based social-media websites, such as Gowalla and FourSquare, a video journal and travel planning website such as TripAdvisor.

    Someone with a Blogger blog has posted lots of picture and details about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

    Hello from Niagara Falls!

    Jon and I slept in today till 11am. That was much needed. We walked to Niagara Falls. There were 2 falls: one was the Canadian “horseshoe” falls and the other was the American one “Bridal Veil” falls. We went on Maid of the Mist and Journey behind the Falls. Maid of the Mist was very nice. The boat went near the falls so we got a very good view of the horseshoe. The Journey behind the falls sounded better than it actually was. We went down 38m into a tunnel where we saw the falls rushing down. However, you really couldn’t see much. There was an observational deck which allowed us to see the side of the falls. That was nice but it was a disappointment. We walked to the top of the falls and saw where the water rushed down. That was very cool!

    Despite the crowds and all the vendors/shows/shops anxious to have you deposit your Loonies with them, the natural attractions at Niagara Falls are simple awesome.

    This summer of 2010 I get to celebrate new beginnings. For the next six weeks I’m in the GTA (Toronto Area) having adventures and spending time with some of my oldest and dearest friends. Amna & Ali’s wedding will be at the end of the month and until I head back home on August 4th, I’ll be putting up pictures and documenting some of my adventures as a tourist here in Southern Ontario.

    Clifton Hill is the street where all the amusements are. The Wax Museums, the Horror Houses, Guiness Book of World Records, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not and on and on. There are so many places to see and visit. Gerry and I decided on The Movieland Wax Museum of Stars and The Guiness Book of World Records Museum. Honestly, it would take a few days to visit everything!

    Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent tip to Niagara Falls (including some very nice pictures):

    It has now been five years since my husband and I said I DO. It hardly feels possible that it has been that long. It has been a happy love filled journey and I feel so lucky to be head over heals in love with this amazing man, and also getting to spend every day with my best friend. It dosen’t get better than that! For our anniversary we snuck away for the weekend for some much needed rest and relaxing. Life can be downright exhausting at times! We booked a room at Kilpatrick Manor B&B and let me tell you, this place is nothing short of fabulous. We loved everything about it. Our room was luxurious perfection, the house beautiful, and the breakfasts?? Let’s just say Kevin’s amazing cooking turned us into breakfast snobs! If you’re thinking about going to the Falls stay there! You will be so glad you did! Kevin and Nance are spectacular hosts!
