Here is an interesting article from Reed Construction Data about developments in the Niagara region:
For anyone who hasn’t visited Niagara Falls in a decade or so, the most astonishing initial sight is skyscrapers rising into the clouds to the east of the Queen Elizabeth Way.
The city has changed dramatically, with luxury high-rise hotels juxtaposed against the ground-hugging carnival attractions on Clifton Hill.
A trip to the region remains a delight for every age bracket.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The Niagara Parks Commission would like people to do more than just drive past the Festival of Lights exhibits. In an effort to expand their list of winter activities and try to get tourists to spend time outside of their cars, the commission has installed a carnival-type vintage carousel to anchor what it’s calling Victorian Candy Land.
“It allows people to not only stay in their cars, but get out and experience more of the parks up close. It’s about turning the park into a four-seasons destination,” said NPC director of communications Tony Baldinelli.
Someone with a Blogger blog has posted about Clifton Hill (including pictures):
Clifon Hill, the street of fun at the Falls, is indeed a street full of crazy bars, extreme shops, and amusement. It’s a bit like Las Vegas entertainment but in a smaller version. You can find a carnival fair, have a drink in a strange bar like the “Rainforest Cafe”, go bowling…. It’s a very busy street, many people go here to have fun but also to wander around in this crazy street full of music, sounds and colours. At night the lights come to live.
