From the Niagara Gazette:
It seems forever that tourists have questioned why there’s so little to do here compared with all the action on the Canadian side.
The answer is quite simple: Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ont., offers countless attractions, running the gamut from the 175-foot-high Niagara Sky Wheel to the rebuilt Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Other crowd pleasers include “Movieland: Wax Museum of the Stars “ and the Dinosaur Adventure Golf, including a 50-foot high “active” steam-erupting volcano that lets golfers play directly through an eerie, cavernous setting on the way to the 18th hole. The Wizards Golf: Glow in the Dark Mini Putt, is a challenging course too. And, of course, we can’t ignore the fact that from the Ontario side, visitors have the better view of the natural wonder.
From a Marketwired press release seen on Yahoo! Finance:
Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday with a nationwide celebration, ‘Canada 150’ and the Niagara Falls Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa invites guests to celebrate right at the heart of it all. And the Niagara Region is going a step above, hosting a localized ‘Niagara 150’ event in conjunction with Canada 150. Combined these events celebrate Canada and the Niagara Region. The festivities include a number of special events, free admission to historic Canadian locations and more. Marriott’s iconic luxury Niagara Falls hotel is poised to be the perfect home base for those looking to celebrate.
All that majesty, power and water didn’t stop Oscar Wilde from quipping about Niagara Falls being the second disappointment in the married life of many American brides who spend their honeymoon there, after he visited it in 1882. Can’t please everyone? Take this quiz to see how much you know about the natural feature.
I took the quiz and got 26 out of 30.
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.
