    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    What do you do after successfully crossing Niagara Falls on a tightrope with the whole world watching?

    “I slept all night for the first time in three months,” said Nik Wallenda, addressing media at Edgewaters Restaurant one day after cementing himself in the record books as the first person to directly cross over the thunderous falls on a wire.

    Wallenda was joined by Niagara Parks Commision (NPC) chair Janice Thomson and Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport Michael Chan to unveil two plaques dedicated in Wallenda’s honour.

    Both plaques will be placed on a walkway leading to the White Water Walk. One commemorates Wallenda’s historic feat while the other depicts the history of stunting in Niagara Falls.

    From YNN Rochester (includes video):

    Since the 1930’s, this classic destination has been taking visitors on an elevator ride down 230 feet to the edge of the mighty Niagara River. A well-constructed boardwalk allows you to stroll along at your own pace right next to the river with 2 opportunities to descend stairs to take you even closer.

    The same person that I linked to the other day has posted more about the trip to Niagara Falls:

    I arrived home from my trip to the falls late last Sunday afternoon. It has been ten years since I’ve last been and nothing really has change. The falls are still huge and beautiful. Clifton Hill still manages to pack every tacky tourist attraction up and down that steep hill. A few new sights for me was the Niagara Sky wheel, and the Ten Thousand Buddha Sarira Stupa a Buddhist temple across the street from the entrance of the White Water Walk, things I’ve never did on past family trips to the falls.
