    No Comments

    From the Chicagoist:

    Niagara Falls is the meeting point of the Canadian and American borders, where two countries collide in the form of a spectacular natural wonder. Almost as spectacular as the thundering water is the excitement, food, and adventure found on the Canadian side of the line.

    A trip to Niagara Falls is more than a simple weekend getaway; it’s a way to escape the ordinary and discover Canada’s wild side at its finest. Experience the wonderment of the Falls while embarking on a culinary journey, take a thrilling zipline ride across the river, or simply stand on the Canadian side of the border and wave across the Falls at your American friends while enjoying that sweet, low Canadian dollar.

    From 4 Hoteliers:

    The city of Niagara Falls, Ontario, is on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, which forms the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the US state of New York.

    The natural wonder of Niagara Falls, which is the collective name for the Horseshoe Falls, the adjacent American Falls, and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls, is a major tourist attraction for the city of Niagara Falls, attracting 12 million visitors every year.

    Combined, the three falls have the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world—and a vertical drop of more than 165 feet.

    Niagara Falls latest natural wonder to add zip line

    No Comments

    From CBS News:

    Niagara Falls is the latest natural wonder to add a zip line, offering honeymooners and everyone else the chance to take an adrenaline-pumping plunge toward churning mist at speeds topping 40 mph.

    The elevated cable rides have evolved from a novel way to explore jungle canopies to almost necessary additions to lure tourists in the 21st century to established destinations. It’s a trend that’s exposed a rift between those who approach nature like contemplative monks and others who require an extreme, Indiana Jones-style experience.

    “We can’t make these into museums. We have to keep the general public – the folks that these places have been set aside for – we have to keep them motivated to get out there,” argued Tom Benson, co-founder and chief experience officer at WildPlay Element Parks, which built the Niagara Falls zip line.

    Get out and play, and afterwards, celebrate how much fun you’ve had with a local brew or spirit and delicious meal—farm to table, of course.

    From the Vancouver Sun:

    Call it a cruise ship on land.

    The Great Wolf Lodge is unlike any other resort hotel in Canada, and one that despite being just a 10-minute drive from one of the greatest natural wonders of the world often compels guest to stay on-site for their entire vacation.

    “Our mission statement is creating family traditions one family at a time,” explains Great Wolf Lodge GM Keith Simmonds.

    “And this place is about family traditions. You do stuff with your kids.”

    That “stuff” includes a 100,000 sq. ft indoor water park featuring 13 water slides, two giant hot tubs, a huge wave pool and a 500,000-litre lazy river.
