1) The Maid of the Mist!!! It's a boat that takes you under the Niagra Falls. 2) Casinorama!!! It's Ontario's only true casino and its amazing.

It's clean, new, big, and Las Vegas like. The service, as in any casino, is good, but if you don't have any money left, go home is their motto. The lights and mirrors and lack of windows make you lose track of time in this Wonderland of Money. Everyone is a potential success? Have fun, but don't plan on coming out with a big profit. On a good note, your pockets will be lighter on the way out. Man, you gotta thank 'em for taken those heavy c-notes from you.

Biking along the rumbling waters

Attraction | "Along the Rumbling Waters"

There possibly is a rental area but I haven't seen it yet. Anyway, the bike ride is beautiful. You can go along the side of the river which is a ways down from where you are. The cliff is scenic and the mist from the falls is an inspiring bike ride, but I would prefer to ride through the local forests as they can be challenging and I like challenge.

In line you feel like a POW waiting in line to get on a train. People are packed around you. Then you're put on a boat 'The Maid' and set out with a packed boat of anxious tourists. The smell of seaweed invades your nose and the water appears dirty and has suds like a giant bath. The boat takes you closer and closer to the falls and the mist grows into a rain. They take you extremly close to the falls or as far as I would recommend before I jump off the boat and swim to safety. The roar is overwhelming and the falls tower over you. They are shaped like a horse shoe around you. Then the boat turns around in perfect time and the last glimpse of the falls is breathtaking.

It's a beautiful under rated festival. It's really fun for children to attend. There are many events and games. They have colorful parades during November, December and January. Also festival fire works and sparkling light displays. They also have a wonderful New Years outdoors party. This is all open to the public and its really fun. Niagra has something all year round for tourists and I beleive it will be much bigger than Las Vegas in a few decades. It's a growing attraction and theres plenty to keep you buisy.
