    Niagara Falls ~ A View of Clifton Hill

    No Comments

    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.

    “Bring lots of money”, that was my brother’s advice when I told him where we were going for our vacation. Turns out he knew what he was talking about. Despite finding clean, affordable accommodations within easy walking distance of the Falls, the biggest expense and surprise since arriving here is how much it costs to eat here. Thank goodness that breakfast is provided by the hotel. We have gone to a variety of places for lunch and dinner and with a few exceptions, the cost has been $25-$35 per adult. It’s a little cheaper for kids but not that much. There are lots of families for multiple kids in tow, I don’t know quite how they manage. Don’t get me wrong, service has been great, the food good but not outstanding.

    after what seemed like forever, our departure date finally came! We left early on a Sunday morning to board a tiny plane, taking us from Philadelphia to Buffalo. We had no issues with security, we were becoming quite good at getting through without any major issues or horrible looks from fellow travelers. The flight was quite short and we arrived into Buffalo on time. We rented our car and started on our adventure.

    We weighed out our options for a long weekend away: Toronto, Niagara Falls, Camping Trip. We’d done TO a few times before, so we weren’t super-excited about another stay at the SoHo. We also don’t own any camping equipment and have a tendency to get lost in unmarked areas. That left Niagara Falls, a place that against all appearances is supposed to be one of the most romantic in the world.

    Someone with a WordPress blog has posted about a summer trip to Niagara Falls:

    I think this ended up as the consensus highlight stop of the trip to Ontario for all of us. Michelle had begun to feel better, the weather was getting warmer, and the kids were beside themselves with excitement at the prospect of another visit to Clifton Hill.

    Although I’ve visited NF many, many times, the kids have only been once. In the past, we’ve also normally just done a day trip from Guelph instead of staying overnight at the Falls, a pattern we reversed to great effect on this visit. We stayed at the Sheraton on the Falls, which overlooks directly the American falls and is at the base of Clifton Hill to the great delight of the kids. We were fortunate enough to get an upgrade to a top floor, with a small balcony overlooking the falls, a feature that became a huge bonus when the fireworks show began almost right outside our window.

    My second major goof came at Niagara Falls – but in the end, it turned out not to matter. I’d chosen to stay on the US side to catch this morning’s train; had successfully negotiated the border (through the door marked “pedestrian entrance to USA”) and, as usual, turned down the offer of a taxi outside the checkpoint, by First Avenue, and walked. And walked. And walked. And walked some more.

    By 27th Avenue, I was exhausted and covered in sweat. Niagara Falls, New York is not a successful resort like its Canadian counterpart – once past the tourist hotels, it’s a beaten-up town, with abandoned buildings and a sense of desolation.

    So what’s a better way to cheer myself up and get out of the country? Another trip. Money is tight and so is time. I start school again in less then 3 weeks. When I was deciding where to go Toronto was currently on a civic strike with no trash pick up, so that eliminated Toronto. A trip home to Montreal, or Buffalo, Chicago, Hong Kong and Thailand all prove to be too expensive. So I eventually decide on Niagara Falls. Close by, cheap, and able to leave the country.

    “You’ve been all the way to Cuba, but you’ve never been to the falls?” My friend’s boyfriend laughed, last night at our friends’ Sarah and Steve’s buck and doe. I’ve been to the falls before. Several times actually. However the last time I was standing in the middle of some park freezing to death listening to Jeff Healy (sp) worrying if what they said will happen at Y2K will actually happen. It didn’t. So almost 10 years has passed since I’ve been.
