At another store, I recently saw this book called Visions of Canada. It is a collection of stories and essays about different parts of Canada. The section about Niagara Falls is from novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne‘s visit in 1832 (but not published until 1835). Oh, that I had never heard of Niagara till I beheld it! […]

I was away for a few days last week and ended up in Peterborough, Ontario. It’s 2.5 – 3 hours away from Niagara Falls. We stopped at a second-hand store called Talize, and this shirt was hanging on the end of an aisle as we walked into the store.

From The Hawk Eye (in Burlington, Iowa): Our first glimpse of Niagara Falls was from the Rainbow Bridge, which connects the United States and Canada. It was the end of a long day on the road when we arrived in northwest New York, having driven through a portion of the Adirondacks on the drive west […]

On Monday night I was out at a couple of dollar stores (Dollar Tree and Dollarama), and one of them (I can’t remember which one) had these puzzles.

If you live close to Clarington, Ontario and you will be making your way to Niagara Falls, it may be worth your while to buy some partially used Clifton Hill Fun Passes. Even though the SkyWheel has been used, the remaining items still make it a great deal.
