Huckster Paradise

It says in the guide book that in the 19th Century every type of huckster tried to use Niagara to make money such as Charles Blondin and his tight rope acts. Well today the hucksters are still here only they have famous names such as Hard Rock Cafe, Disney and Ripleys Believe it or Not.

The Falls are great and the attractions with them worthwhile. I would recommend Maid of the Mist, White Water Walk, Aerocar, Skylon Tower, and Walk behind the falls and less so Niagara Fury . Helicopter rides need to be booked well in advance and ring up when you book it to get your slot early.

Turn your back to the Falls and it could be Leicester Square, Times Square, Hollywood Boulevard or any other overly tacky tourist attraction .
