    Falling for Niagara Falls in a big way

    From Canada.com:

    Like Disneyland, Drumheller and a drive across Canada, Niagara Falls is one of those vacations on the familial bucket list.

    Renowned for a century as the “Honeymoon Capital of the World,” Niagara Falls is today built for families, offering accommodations, attractions and package deals much more in tune with nuclear families than newlyweds. Sure, you’ll still catch sight of dewy-eyed, drenched lovebirds cooing to one another on the Maid of the Mist bow, but more often than not they’ll be surrounded by screaming and soaked kids and parents.

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

    Once in Niagara we found a hotel room a couple of blocks from Clifton Hill and the Falls themselves. Now if mention of Niagara Falls conjures up images of romance and classy rendezvous, it was rather shocking to see the Falls as backdrop to Clifton Hill, a cheesy replica of something from an amusement park. It strongly reminded Shannon of Universal Studios or Disneyland. Her exact words “It doesn’t fit the image of Niagara Falls. The two don’t go together.” Only in Clifton Hill would you see a pirate flag on top of the House of Frankenstein.
