The city of Niagara Falls itself has undergone many changes and facelifts through the years: from being the site of the Seventh Wonder and the Honeymoon Capital to being the present day all-season family vacation destination featuring Marineland and the immensely popular Casino Niagara with 100,000 square feet of gaming space! It is thus a city that rejuvenates itself with almost constant renovation and revitalization, while at the same time respecting the traditions that got it to this point.
One of the Niagara Falls’ traditions is the Clifton Hill area where brand-new luxury hotels vie for space with neon-lit honeymoon motels. Couples step into dark funhouses such as Screamers and NIGHTMARES Fear Factory to see who flinches first. Another tradition is the line up of off-the-wall museums such as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! , Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks and Guinness World Of Records that continue to draw the curious.
But any accusations of tackiness are quickly dispelled once you get out into the surrounding countryside. It’s no surprise that the first explorers who saw this region thought they’d discovered a new Eden, what with the relatively warm, rich, lush, verdant landscape anchored by those roaring waters!
