Niagara Parks partners with Metrolinx for new Go Train travel package

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Metrolinx and Niagara Parks are teaming up to make it easier for people to experience one of the country’s top tourism destinations.

The provincial transit agency’s seasonal Go Train service from downtown Toronto to Niagara resumes June 23 and, with the new partnership with Niagara Parks, visitors will be able to purchase travel packages that combine a round-trip GO Train ticket with access to the Wego transportation system.

“We are truly excited to be working with Metrolinx on this project as we invite visitors to immerse themselves in the rich history, world-renowned gardens, trails and pathways and breathtaking natural beauty that characterize Niagara Parks and the entire Niagara region,” Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission, said Monday at Table Rock.

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Tourism officials in Niagara are expecting another solid tourism season as Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary.

Jackie Phillip, manager of the two Ontario travel information centres in Niagara, said she has talked to a few tourism officials who expect to see business increase between 10 and 20 per cent.

“If we get a 10 per cent increase across the board I’d be thrilled and I think with Canada’s and Ontario’s 150th, and with the US dollar the way it is and with the internationals that are travelling, I think we can do it,” she said.

The King reigns supreme at Niagara Falls Elvis Festival

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Real estate agent Sylvain Leduc travelled to Niagara over the weekend but it wasn’t to check out the region’s hot real estate market.

The Quebec resident was a competitor in the Niagara Falls Elvis Festival at Greg Frewin Theatre.

Leduc began entertaining family and friends with his Elvis Presley skills when he was just 15.

“I grew up with his music,” he said Saturday as he prepared to take to the stage for the second round of the competition. “It’s almost the only music I’ve listened to all my life.”

While he has performed as an Elvis tribute artist — referred to as an ETA — for decades, he didn’t enter the competition circuit until a few years ago.

MAGIC IN THE MIST: NIAGARA FALLS ON FILM

No Comments

This article on FilmSchoolRejects.com talks a lot about the history of Niagara Falls in the movies. It includes references to the Marilyn Monroe movie, as well as others

Niagara Falls is one of the most famous natural wonders in the world. It only makes sense that it has appeared onscreen many times throughout the years. Niagara Falls has been featured in many different types of films, including traditional narrative films, travelogues, and of course documentaries. Each of these different forms of filmmaking offers a unique perspective on Niagara, in terms of the landscape, its mythical qualities, the culture surrounding it, and how humans interact with such a huge force of nature.

There’s more to Niagara than just the Falls

From Canada.com:

In the morning you’re on a catamaran a few feet from the base of the world’s best-known waterfall, with green water the colour of a Chinese vase thundering down from above and enveloping you in a mad, swirling mist. At lunch you’re sipping Cabernet Sauvignon in a posh dining room overlooking ripening vineyards.

Later in the day you catch an intense production of Dracula at the world-renowned Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, then stop at the craft brewery in town before finishing things off with dinner.

I’ve probably been to Niagara Falls a dozen times now, and I seem to discover a different version each time.
