    From blogTO.com:

    Niagara Falls is the most obvious weekend getaway from Toronto, but also the one that’s easiest to get wrong. There are hundreds of tourist traps spread around the Queen of the Cataracts, most of which should be avoided. Taking in a bit of kitsch is almost requisite, but there’s little need to blow a ton of cash at Clifton Hill if you know what you’re doing.

    Here’s how to spend 48 hours in Niagara Falls.

    From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

    Thomas Barnett opened the first museum in Niagara Falls, a concatenation of “natural and artificial curiosities” that drew in the tourists.

    It also attracted the envy and competition of Saul Davis, a ne’er-do-well who entered into a competition that ended in gunfire, a death and Davis ultimately buying up the Barnett property.

    We can’t promise you a gunfight when you visit Clifton Hill, but the spirit of the hard-sell and the way-out and the look-at-that is a going thing in the Capital of Kitsch.
