    No Comments

    From TravellingMom.com:

    Most visitors to Niagara Falls arrive in the summer when the kids and grandkids get a break from school. Summer may be ending, but that doesn’t mean the fun disappears from Niagara Falls! On both sides of the Falls — the American side in Niagara Falls, New York and the Canadian side in Ontario — there’s plenty to keep you and the kiddos busy when you visit Niagara no matter what time of year you choose to go. Use this travel guide to help you plan your Niagara Falls adventures all year round.

    Aquarium of Niagara offers classes and camps over winter break

    From Niagara Frontier Publications:

    Don’t let the kids be bored this winter break. There is plenty to do at the Aquarium of Niagara – and all inside.

    If it is too cold for the kids, they can discover penguins feel the same way at aquarium “Penguin Day Camps” running 9 a.m. to noon on Dec. 28 and 30. Families with children ages 6-plus can dive deep with staffers at 9:30 a.m. Dec. 27 as part of a “Sharks in Depth.” For all the kids who like to ask “Why?”, the hands-on junior scientist class running from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Dec. 29 will show them how to find the answer.

    “Our classes are meant to be fun ways for young and old to experience the aquarium during a time families traditionally gather,” educator Katherine Jones said. “We offer a chance to continue the learning through the break and create new memories as a family.”

    Groupon – Aquarium of Niagara – Niagara Falls

    No Comments

    The other day I tweeted some of the recent Groupon-type deals that were related to the Niagara Region. I wanted to post about this one separately.

    Have you been to the Aquarium of Niagara? I hadn’t before this year, but it is great. It is a small aquarium in Niagara Falls, New York, not too far away from the Rainbow Bridge. Last year about this time they had a Groupon. It was the same price as the one right now… $25 for a family membership. We decided to go for it, and it ended up being used several times. There are penguins, lots of different kinds of fish, and even seals and sea lions. The kids loved it.

    If you have a family with small kids, I’d definitely give the current Groupon a try!

    From the New York Times (including some kids’ drawings):

    The Kids Draw the News assignment to do a drawing about Nik Wallenda’s plan to cross high above Niagara Falls on a tightrope Friday night drew a bunch of lovely submissions. Some of them are in the slide show above.

    Everyone loves Ontario’s Marineland

    From the Toronto Sun:

    “There’s a place I know in Ontario, where the sea lions kiss, so the story goes.

    “Its amazing shows and Friendship Cove . . . everyone loves Marineland.”

    Wait, there’s more:

    “You’ll be spinning, diving and soaring high. Our roller-coaster ride will fly you to the sky. Now you know what you’ll say when you leave here today . . . everyone loves Marineland.”

    Love or hate that commercial, it’s a sure sign of summer and sure catches the attention of kids.

    Musical looking for some amazing kids

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It’s not amazing just yet, but Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat are getting warmed up.

    The inaugural show at the city’s new Scotiabank Convention Centre starts May 30, and among the first steps is finding talented kids. Lots of them.

    And as producer Linus Hand knows full well, that’s never easy. Some kids can sing, others can dance. But how many can sing, dance and act?

    Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls (including a couple of pictures)

    We decided to take the kids and Uncle Rick
    to the falls on a rainy Saturday.
    Unfortunately, the kids found them to be
    a bit of a yawn and Graydon’s foot “hurt”.

    Miraculously, Graydon’s foot-ailment went into remission
    when we arrived at the ultra-tacky Clifton Hill.

    Sounds a bit like one of my sons 🙂

    Niagara Falls – Bring lots of money << Ken's-Place

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

    “Bring lots of money”, that was my brother’s advice when I told him where we were going for our vacation. Turns out he knew what he was talking about. Despite finding clean, affordable accommodations within easy walking distance of the Falls, the biggest expense and surprise since arriving here is how much it costs to eat here. Thank goodness that breakfast is provided by the hotel. We have gone to a variety of places for lunch and dinner and with a few exceptions, the cost has been $25-$35 per adult. It’s a little cheaper for kids but not that much. There are lots of families for multiple kids in tow, I don’t know quite how they manage. Don’t get me wrong, service has been great, the food good but not outstanding.
