From the Niagara Gazette:
Why does the Canadian-side of Niagara Falls develop so much better than the American-side?…
Suddenly, even though neither one of us had made a single step, we both had found ourselves instead of a simple mile away from the Canadian border, we were now may have well been out on the Mexican desert, so far away from yet another reason why the Canadian side looks like it looks in development, and why the American side is little more than the butt of a bad joke.
A recent CNN iReport was about Niagara Falls (including a few pictures):
There are two cities in the world that bear the name Niagara Falls. The first city is Niagara Falls, New York, which is a part of the Buffalo, NY Metropolitan Area. On the other side (to the northwest) of the Niagara River, lies Niagara Falls, Ontario in Canada. Both of these cities have charming attractions that tourists will love, but the primary attraction of the region are the Niagara Falls themselves.
Earlier this week I received the latest email from the Skylon Tower.
From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:
Walt Disney considered putting his second theme park in Niagara Falls.
The Niagara News reports that when Walt Disney was exploring locations for a second “Disneyland” after the success of his park in California, he considered Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Last week I received the latest email from the Skylon Tower.
Cycling is a solo venture, but there’s something to be said about riding alongside friends with some beautiful scenery in the background. The GranFondo, modeled after Europe’s mass-participation cycling events, aims to bring that experience to Canada, with the inaugural GranFondo Niagara Falls, sponsored by the Courtyard Niagara Falls.
This year’s race, on September 14th, follows the success of 2010’s ride in Whistler. Thousands of cyclists will gather at the start/finish line at the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, just minutes from this hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, to set off on the 125-kilometre route.
Last week I received the latest email newsletter from Oh Canada, Eh? Dinner Theatre.
