Niagara on the Lake Walking Tour

Posted by on Sep 25, 2012

When you go to a new city, you often wander around and wonder what it’s all about. The answer to these questions can usually be found with a walking tour! Luckily, in Niagara on the Lake, there is a walking tour available every weekend October through April. When I travelled to Europe in the summer I found that the walking tours gave me a new appreciation for each city that I was in because not only was I able to take in the beauty, I understood more about what the city truly meant. I think it’s wonderful that Niagara on the Lake offers this to tourists and even locals. Niagara on the...

Jay Cochrane in Niagara Falls

Posted by on Aug 15, 2012

This summer started with Nik Wallenda bringing in thousands of onlookers to watch as he passed over Niagara Falls on a tightrope. But the tight rope spectacle didn’t stop when Wallenda landed in the United States that afternoon. No, here in Niagara Falls we have a dare devil walking above our heads every day at 7pm for the entire summer! Jay Cochrane, 68, walks 400 m, 50 stories up every night at 7pm. This is the greatest building to building in North America and by the end of the summer, Cochrane will have walked over 30 km high above our heads. I know that my uncle visiting from Calgary...
