Great Experiences on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls

No Comments

The Clifton Hill blog has a nice write-up about a photographer from Holland who came and visited, along with some links to some great pictures. Check it out!

A few weeks ago we were contacted by professional photographer Ken Cranney, who recently visited Niagara Falls with his wife Ina and son Riley. They traveled all the way from Holland and met up with some close friends, who drove in from New Jersey. Ken is actually a Canadian living in Holland while his wife and son are Dutch. They all converged on Clifton Hill’s World Famous Street of Fun by the Falls to kick off a fun filled weekend!

Tourist season kicks off

From the Niagara Gazette:

This weekend the prime tourist season started with most visitors likely arriving from the Canadian side of the river.

Over there, the long Victoria Day weekend celebrates the birthday of Queen Victoria of England. Banks, schools and government offices will be closed in Ontario on Monday.

Traffic should be backed up at the international bridges as Canadians hop across to shop with their higher-valued currency. On Friday, that dollar was worth $1.03 (U.S.).

That hurts, if you happened to be stuck in Canada with your American buck. Chances are an Ontario merchant smugly told you that your Yankee dollar was worth 90 cents. (It’s called payback time.)

Next weekend, many of us will be off Monday to observe our Memorial Day holiday.
