    Niagara Falls travelblog: Viewing the Falls from different spots

    No Comments

    From NewsOK.com:

    My radio colleague, Jim Traber, made a great point with me the other day on The Sports Animal. Traber said Niagara Falls is a lot like the Grand Canyon. He is awed by Niagara Falls. He thinks it’s glorious. But when he gets there, he sees it, he’s impressed and he’s ready to go. Either to the casino or to the highway.

    And it’s a valid question. After you’ve seen Niagara Falls, what then? Do you keep looking at it? How do you experience Niagara Falls for more than just 15 minutes?

    Well, the Dish and I tried to answer that question Tuesday. And I think we did.

    * We viewed Niagara Falls from various points at the top of the falls.

    From Canoe.ca News:

    A 43-year-old man has been charged after a makeshift bomb ignited but didn’t explode in a hotel lobby Wednesday, police say.

    Emergency crews were called to the Courtside Inn around 6:30 p.m. after a guest lit a glass jar filled with liquid and debris before running back to his room, police said.

    Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire before it spread to other areas of the hotel.

    From Niagara This Week:

    Right now, the Ontario Power Generation Galley at the Niagara Falls History Museum is an open — and very empty — space.

    It won’t be that way for long as come Jan. 16, the hall will come alive in a display that that oddly enough, is dedicated to — wait for it — Space.

    That’s space, as in the final frontier; space, as in out of this world.

    And centre to the exhibit is a moon rock brought back to Earth in 1971 by the Apollo XV mission.
