    The tourists are coming! Unofficial start of the tourism season

    No Comments

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    The holiday honours Queen Victoria’s birthday, but for the thousands of tourists who come to Niagara Falls for the Victoria Day weekend it’s a time to relax, have fun and kick off the beginning of the summer season.

    No trip to Niagara Falls would be complete without a stop on Clifton Hill, which is often quite busy, regardless of the hour.

    “Getting to see the Falls is just amazing,” said Karisa Burt, a first-time visitor, who is visiting with her family from Newfoundland. “I’m taking a lot of pictures because I want to remember everything.”

    Vikki Ash, also from Newfoundland, has been to Niagara Falls before, but she made Clifton Hill her first stop of the day.

    “We’ve been on the Skywheel and really enjoyed that and later we will be doing some shopping. We are here to enjoy some family time together.”

    Someone with a WordPress blog has posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls (along with pictures):

    Welcome to Clifton Hill ~ the cash cow of Niagara Falls. Come on out and play… oh and before I forget? Bring your wallet because you’ll be needing it!

    It’s chaos there. The constant sounds and colours assault your senses for hours on end as the place doesn’t truly shut down until the wee hours of the morning. Every attraction be it bowling, a museum, a restaurant, or a shop has a gimmick to catch your attention. There are moving figures, talking animals, speakerphones with singing, lights flashing or spinning, bold and zany colours and murals all vying for your eyes and ultimately, your money. If anyone in your company has sensory issues, like my son does, you really need to break the shopping into manageable pieces. Mathew is autistic, mildly so, but the sheer magnitude of everything put him into overload very fast. We made several visits to Clifton Hill and that made it much more enjoyable and easy to handle.
