    From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:

    The Niagara Global Tourism Institute (NGTI) has asked the city of Niagara Falls for $50,000 to create three blocks of public WIFI between the Seneca Niagara Casino and Niagara Falls State Park on Old Falls Street.

    The purpose of the WIFI is to help tourists avoid the “roaming” charges that sometimes happen with phones that are close to Canada, and to also encourage tourists to expand their trip outside of the State Park.

    From The Telegraph:

    Spectacular and easy to get to, Niagara Falls have been a honeymoon destination since the 19th century. Nowadays, romance is matched by casinos, spas and family amusements. There are actually three falls, the Canadian Horseshoe, American and Bridal Veil Falls, and, as they straddle the US/Canada border, the question is: where to stay? The Ontario bank has the best views and offers much more for visitors, from helicopter rides and nearby vineyards to first-rate theatre in the pretty town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Across in New York is the small, gritty city of Niagara, where the waterfalls and riverbank are protected by a state park.

    From the Buffalo News:

    The just-announced $15 million in renovations to Niagara Falls State Park over the next few years, on top of the $25 million in ongoing work, is proof that the nation’s oldest state park is finally getting the attention it deserves.

    The visitor experience at the park has to be improved if the American side of the falls is ever going to be considered on the same level as its neighbor across the border.

    From the Ethiopian Review:

    Mother Nature never ceases to amaze us. If, at times, we forget the awesome power she wields, all it takes to remind us is a glance at one of the earth’s most magnificent works of art: the waterfall. Monstrous in size, a fall’s power—and, most often, surreal setting—keeps visitors mesmerized year after year. Whether taken in from above, while looking down at the plunging water, or from afar for a pure panoramic effect, the nine waterfalls below are loved for their soaring heights, peaceful sounds and remarkable histories…

    Niagara Falls in North America

    This massive waterfall, which partially resides in Ontario, Canada, is located in America’s oldest state park—the Niagara Reservation State Park. Classified as a segmented waterfall because the water flow splits into two side-by-side falls, Niagara Falls is one of the most powerful waterfalls in North America. Four of the five Great Lakes (Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie) drain into the Niagara River before spewing into Lake Ontario—which makes up one-fifth of the world’s fresh water supply.
