Clifton Hill is an entertainment/retail area an easy walk away from Niagara Falls, but not right at the falls. It’s a vibrant, fun place to be, with lots of places to spend your cash.
The Niagara Skywheel is prominent in the skyline both day and night. I love the look of ferris wheels, but you won’t get me on one. Immediately in front of that is the Dinosaur Mini Golf. The dinosaurs rawr at you when you go past. That in itself is cool… and rather entertaining when the people in front of you aren’t expecting it.
Falls Avenue extends off the Niagara Parkway along the lower side of Clifton Hill. Highlights for me were the Hershey’s Chocolate World and the Coca Cola stores.
After walking along Falls Avenue, we headed down to the falls where we spent the rest of the day. We came back to Clifton Hill in the evening for dinner. I ate at the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara, NY on my previous trip, and I wanted to make it a matched set by dining at the Canadian one!
Carole King was right – some people can’t stay away from the Hard Rock Cafe! It’s possibly a good thing that there isn’t one anywhere near where I live in Australia.
I love the way the Hard Rock Cafes are always so incredibly decked out. And the food… OMG. Seriously.
Confession: We shared the onion rings between three of us, and I still couldn’t finish my burger & fries. Delicious!
