My wife and I went to Niagara Falls on Tuesday. The weather forecast was pretty decent for late January. We took Rt. 5 from Erie to Hamburg, NY. We took I 190 to Niagara Falls and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. The border crossing took 3 minutes. Earlier in the day, I booked a room at a Comfort Inn that stated it was close to Fallsview Casino. (a 3 minute walk) The rate of $54 included a hot breakfast. There was a twelve dollar fee to park at the hotel, therefore I parked our vehicle in the casino ramp. The exchange at the casino gave us 137 Canadian for $100. My luck was good on Tuesday. We ended up over 100 Canadian ahead due to several small hits on slot machines. Fallsview sent us a voucher for two "free" buffets. They also give me tickets for shows in their theater. We have seen about five of them. All were enjoyable The weather was great for late January. There was snow on the ground, however, the roads were bare. I know that parts of our country are having bad weather, but I am enjoying some aspects of El Nino.
