Niagara Falls, Ontario

to the better view of the falls from the Canadian side of the river. In the 20th century, there was a favourable exchange rate when comparing Canadian and U.S. currencies, and Ontario had a greater focus on tourism. Also, Ontario's legal drinking age of 19, in comparison to a legal drinking age of 21 in the U.S., attracts 19- and 20-year-old potential alcohol consumers from across the border. The Ontario government introduced legal gambling to the local economy in the mid-1990s. Casino Niagara precipitated an economic boom in the late 1990s as numerous luxury hotels and tourist attractions were built, and a second casino, Niagara Fallsview (Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort), opened in 2004. Both were able to attract American tourists due in part to the comparatively less expensive Canadian dollar, and despite the opening of the Seneca Niagara Casino on the American side. When the Canadian and US currencies had moved closer to parity in the 2000s, Niagara Falls, Ontario continued to be a popular destination for Americans. Its tourist areas had many attractions and a vibrancy, while Niagara Falls, New York languished in a prolonged economic downturn. In 2004, several tourist establishments in Niagara Falls began adding a three percent marketing fee to bills. The collected money is untraceable, and there are no controls over how each establishment spends it. The Ontario government—concerned that tourists could be misled into believing the fees were endorsed by the government—warned hotels and restaurants in 2008 not to claim the fee if it was not being remitted to a legitimate non-profit agency that promotes tourism. The practise continues, and takes in an estimated $15 million per-year from tourists unaware the fee is voluntary and can be removed from their bill. History The GGR was organized in 1895 as the Niagara Falls & Lewiston. It was reorganized and became the Niagara Gorge Railroad and operated until a Rock Slide on September 17, 1935. The Great Gorge Route was part of the "Niagara Gorge Belt Line". This service was jointly with the IRC "Canadian Scenic Route" on the Canadian side of the River from Niagara Falls, Ontario to Queenston, Ontario. Crossings were made on the Falls View Bridge in Niagara Falls and the Lewiston-Queenston Suspension Bridge. The IRC in Niagara Falls interchanged with the Niagara, St. Catharines & Toronto (NS&T), Canadian National; Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Railway; Pere Marquette Railway and New York Central subsidiary Michigan Central Railroad. * '''Casino:''' Fallsview Casino Resort, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada * '''Buy-in:''' C$2,500

Northeast ''Niagara River'' Lewiston (NY) (Lewiston, New York) East ''Niagara River'' Niagara Falls, NY (Niagara Falls, New York) Grand Island (NY) (Grand Island, New York) Southeast History The event was organized by the Pan-American Exposition Company, formed in 1897. Cayuga Island was initially chosen as the place to hold the Exposition because of the island's proximity to Niagara Falls, which was a huge tourist attraction. But when the Spanish-American War broke out in 1898, plans were put on hold. After the war, there was a heated competition between Buffalo and Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls, New York) over the location. Buffalo won for two main reasons. First, Buffalo had a much larger population — with roughly 350,000 people, it was the eighth-largest city in the United States. Second, Buffalo had better railroad connections — the city was within a day's journey by rail for over 40 million people. In July 1898, Congress (U.S. Congress) pledged $500,000 for the Exposition to be held at Buffalo. The "Pan American" theme was carried throughout the event with the slogan "commercial well being and good understanding among the American Republics." Nikola Tesla had recently invented a three-phase system (Three-phase electric power) of alternating current power transmission for distant transfer of electricity. This allowed designers to light the Exposition in Buffalo using power generated '''New York State Route 182''' ('''NY 182''') is a state highway in Niagara County, New York, in the United States. It serves as a signed connection between the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge over the Niagara River and the Niagara Falls International Airport east of the city of Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls, New York). The western terminus of the route is at the roadway leading to the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge in Niagara Falls and its eastern terminus is at an intersection with U.S. Route 62 (U.S. Route 62 in New York) (US 62) in Wheatfield (Wheatfield, New York). In between, NY 182 runs across the city of Niagara Falls, following several local streets as it makes its way from the Niagara River gorge to the suburbs of Niagara Falls.
