Authentic Italian Dinner in Niagara Falls at Napoli

Posted by on Nov 28, 2011

An authentic Italian dinner right in Niagara Falls can be found in this wonderful restaurant down the road from BEST WESTERN PLUS Cairn Croft Hotel on Ferry St, called Napoli. Napoli offers a quiet, delightful, delicious dining experience as I found out when I went with my family. With old family recipes and homemade ingredients, no matter what you choose on the menu, you will not be disappointed. I am a sucker for a good pizza. My choice? The Italiana. With mozzarella, goat cheese, roasted red peppers, tomatoes and arugula, this pizza took me back to my family vacation around Italy, for a...

Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade

Posted by on Nov 18, 2011

The Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade is a winter tradition. Families line the streets as the floats go by, along Victoria Ave, and down Queen Street. It seems that everyone participates in the city’s parade whether it’s in the parade like local business’, schools, city hall officials and of course Santa, or by sponsoring the parade. Each year in high school, we would decorate a parade float in our A.N. Myer purple and white Christmas decorations and try to be the most energetic school there. It was great to wave from the float and watch as big smiles grew across kid’s faces as we...
