Harvest Festival at Fireman’s Park

Posted by on Sep 30, 2011

The Stamford Centre Volunteer Firemen’s Association are hosting their 2nd annual Harvest Festival at Firemen’s Park tomorrow in Niagara Falls until Sunday. Last year the event was a big success, being its first year.. and it’s just going to get better.

Bird Kingdom

Posted by on Sep 28, 2011

A trip to the Bird Kingdom was something fun and different. There was a reptile viewing room, complete with live iguana chillin’ on the floor; a small bird sanctuary left Amber ducking her head for the rest of the day as they sore in front of you, above you and around you; the creepy nocturnal area complete with bats, owls and the biggest spiders ever; and the main aviary with birds that look like they could be from a story book! It was cool to see all the different types of exotic birds and hilarious to watch as little children were less freaked out by birds following them than Amber and...

Coyote Run Winery

Posted by on Sep 23, 2011

Two free samples of wine and a pleasant host. That’s what Amber and I got when we went to see Coyote’s Run Estate Winery. Coupons from their website allow you to sample two different types of wine. I think they do this because they know that once you try it, you’re gonna buy it. I did! What sets this winery apart from the many different wineries in Niagara Falls is the two very distinct soil types they have on their property: red clay and black clay. We were told that the black clay produces wine that is rich and earthly, the red clay is much fruitier. I have recently became interested...

Flying Saucer..It’s outta this world!

Posted by on Sep 21, 2011

There are so many options for dining in Niagara Falls but you gotta try this! From the outside it looks like a dive, but the food alone is to die for; located just down the street from the Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel on Lundy’s Lane. If you are visiting Niagara Falls or live in the area and have never tried it, the turkey/gravy sub is a must from The Flying Saucer. This delicious, homemade sub can get a little messy, but I am sure you will be licking your plate clean after one bite. When we ordered in for lunch one day, it reminded us all of the day after Thanksgiving when...
