    From NewYorkUpstate.com:

    There is no question that a visit to Niagara Falls can be an expensive one. Especially if you have a large family and especially if you want to visit the Canadian side with its honky-tonkish arcade-filled Clifton Hill and the lure of a large casino and several pricey attractions. But Mr. Cheapskate says leave your passport home and carve out a fun and relatively inexpensive day visiting the sites, history and majesty of the American side of Niagara Falls.

    From NewsOK:

    Oh, Canada.

    I love Canada. Love the people. Love the land. Love the concept – a sister nation, just as free, just as quirky, sitting right on top of us, with a slightly different history.

    My trips to Canada have been far too few. But our week last year on Prince Edward Island made me want to see even more of Canada. So when Trish the Dish and I decided to take a few days between the OU-Ohio State game and the OSU-Pitt game to visit Niagara Falls, I decided to stay on the Canada side.

    It’s a little dicey. The phones can be screwed up and were. The televisions can be different and were. The money is different. You never know about customs.

    But this I knew. The Canadian side of Niagara Falls always has seemed more hopping than the American side of Niagara Falls. And stunningly, when I compared Courtyard by Marriott prices, the Ontario hotel was a little cheaper than the New York state hotel.

    The battle of Niagara: The US plans that could tempt tourists away from Canada

    From the Daily Mail:

    Every year millions of visitors flock to see the dramatic Niagara Falls that separate New York state from Ontario.

    But while 12million people head to the Canadian side, just six million choose to view the spectacular waterfall from the American side.

    However, all that is set to change as the US ramps up a campaign to develop tourism on the south side of the Falls and tempt some of those 12million away from Canada.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    There will be considerable change along the Niagara River in 2014 now that Hornblower Niagara Cruises has secured the contract to carry passengers from the Canadian side of the river to the base of the Horseshoe Falls.

    Two members of the famous Maid of the Mist fleet are no longer needed for the Niagara River service and have been broken up for scrap.

    The name Maid of the Mist has been part of Niagara River navigation history since 1846, when the first Maid of the Mist served as a ferry between the Canadian and American sides of Niagara Falls.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The just-announced $15 million in renovations to Niagara Falls State Park over the next few years, on top of the $25 million in ongoing work, is proof that the nation’s oldest state park is finally getting the attention it deserves.

    The visitor experience at the park has to be improved if the American side of the falls is ever going to be considered on the same level as its neighbor across the border.
