    Road Trip! Destination: Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

    1 Comment

    From TribLive (western PA):

    It’s a body of water that flows and amazes unlike no other.

    Niagara Falls is an enormously popular tourist destination — from both the American side in New York and the Canadian vantage point in Ontario. Known as the honeymoon capital of the world, the Falls at Niagara are about 12,000 years old. They were formed when melting glaciers formed massive fresh-water lakes. The length of the brink is an astounding 1,060 feet and the height reaches 176 feet.

    A Weekend Getaway: Marineland, Niagara Falls, Ontario

    The 4 Mothers blog has a posting about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

    Looking for a summer weekend activity with the kids? We recently took a road trip to Niagara Falls, Ontario to take in the scenery and spend a day at Marineland…

    The live show did not disappoint and the opportunity to learn about the animals from the keepers was unique. How many of us can say they were an arm’s length from an Orca? The boys spent much of the day on the rides. There are many rides for children and teenagers alike and the queues moved quickly and orderly. The highlight of the park was the gift shop. Despite the collection of standard issue, run of the mill, garbage toys (that cost a small fortune) the shop houses an impressive collection of books and art projects.

    From Nile Guide (including pictures):

    When I think of Niagara Falls and its tourism industry I automatically think of two words; road trip. It really is the perfect spot to venture to for a quick weekend getaway from reality, as it is just a hop, skip and jump over to the United States border and an hour drive from the great city of Toronto. Thus is it safe to assume that those who venture to Niagara Falls are looking for a way to get the kids out and running around after the four hour drive from your home town (or twenty minute drive from down the road).

    What Niagara can Teach us

    I loaded up the minivan again this past weekend, threw the kids in, cued up “Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakual” on the DVD player, and set the GPS for another long road trip. This week’s excursion went international as The Klein’s took Niagara Falls by storm. After getting soaked when witnessing up close the awesome power of The Falls on the maiden voyage of “The Maid of the Mist” for 2010, I, as usual, found a way to draw a parallel between the forces of nature and Mr. Smith’s “invisible hand” which guides our markets.

    From CNet News:

    Even if you’ve never been here, you almost certainly can recognize Niagara Falls with just a glance. At once massive, majestic, awe-inspiring, and thunderously loud–not to mention the “wettest place on Earth”–this famous waterfall is also one of the largest power generators on the planet.

    As part of Road Trip 2010, CNET reporter Daniel Terdiman crossed the Rainbow Bridge and took in the falls from the Canadian side. What he saw, and what millions of others see every year, is truly one of Earth’s most impressive natural features and among the most productive.

    Someone with a Blogger blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls:

    Finally arrived in Niagara Falls, the best city ever. The city was named after a curved water fall. I did not get the point of watching water fall down on some rocks at first, but it’s much more interesting actually to see it. From the viewing areas you can feel the mist trickle against your face.

    Note: The site says it is from July 2010, which obviously isn’t true. Since the person went on Maid of the Mist, it can’t be something that just happened, so I assume it was in July 2009.
