US Niagra Falls

with 4 comments

The US version of journey behind the falls also gets you closer to the falls...

I was presenting at a conference in Niagara Falls a few weeks back to which Tonya came along. We decided to walk over to the US side. For anyone who hasn’t been there, I highly recommend it. The American side is a lovely peaceful state park (on the left) while the Canadian side is rundown tacky, cheesy and overstimulating (right). Our theory is that a bunch of American’s came over and bought up the Canadian side. As a result the Canadian side feels American and the US side is actually more welcoming.

  1. We have the better Falls and are the more natural tourist spot because of it. Hence the insane idea that they needed to build it up like it was Atlantic City. Such a waste, and the prices of stuff (compare a the menu’s at Applebee’s and Denny’s to the normal menu’s of those places) went up

    • Much of it appears very rundown. Maybe with time, it’ll need a face-lift and the cheesiness can be reigned in. We can only hope.

  2. Many years ago it used to be the opposite but I was back a couple months ago and it’s crazy how built up the Canadian side has gotten. If you can look past Clifton Hill and the Casinos the gardens aren’t too bad on the Canadian side.

    • Clifton Hills is not all bad ofcourse. Tonya and I had a great time at the Dave and Busters.
