      A Couple Nights in Niagara Falls

      We spent a couple of nights in Niagara Falls for my wife's birthday last week. Thursday and Friday. I used a ton of Marriott points I had been hording to get a room with a great view of the Falls. We also went to see the Magician Greg Frewin who put on a pretty good show. Disappearing, card tricks, slight of hand and two tigers. Was up a bit at the slots but nothing major. Had a few beers on the patio of a local brewery and listed to guitar guy that was pretty decent.

      We wanted to the boat or the walk behind the falls but they are time consuming and it would have eaten up our entire day.

      We hadn't been there in quite a few years and I was taken back by the immense amount of gouging that now takes place. Parking fees, tourist fees and resort fees. We had a good time but I probably won't be back for quite some time. They hit you in the wallet every chance they can and it kind of annoyed me.

      WOW, that's a very cool scene. Must have been wonderful to be there, feel and hear the water!! Glad you and wife had a good time, even if it lighten your wallet a little. But that is what money is for.

      The one thing we noticed is that it's cleaned up a bit since our last visit. At the top of Clifton Hill is a street called Victoria St that sweeps back towards Casino. There were lots more restaurants and stores that weren't there before. It's nice to see a city have a bit of a rejuvenation. I recall it being pretty run down in that area previously.
