Canadian currency burning a hole in your pocket?
Since, December 1996, Casino Niagara currently generates more than $2.5 billion in canadian currency, and employs approximately 3,800 people. What is not know by the average tourist is that Casino Niagara plies a considerable amount of money to donations, sponsorships, and fund raisers.
A few months after they opened their doors they created a program called Casino Niagara Cares. Their mission is to improve the lives of as many of Niagara’s citizens as possible through donations to health care, the environment, education, the arts, culture, heritage and other charitable causes.
Very noble...now on to the good stuff...
There are 2,800 slot machines, 135 table games (my favorite is black jack), four restaurants and eight bars spread throughout several floors. Elevators and escalators can get you to each floor quickly and efficiently. The enormous room that houses the majority of the table games has an extremely high vaulted ceiling. ornately decorated and very chic.
Canadian currency is what is used and there are several currency exchange services throught the casino. (of course!)
19 and up can enter with a valid ID.
Near Casino Niagara, you will find a convenient parking garage along with additional parking at off-site lots. Valet service is also available.
Another casino is currently being built by the same company. It will be larger, have the addition of a hotel and meeting space, more entertainment and retail venues and it will overlook Horseshoe Falls. (sort of las vegas meets nature thing.) Casual wear is acceptable, however it is very posh looking.
ining in Niagara on the Lake
Niagara on the Lake is for expensive Fine Dining. Niagara Falls is for cheap & tacky. The Buttery is located down the road from the falls in a fairey town place called Niagara on the lake. Follow the river down from the falls past the peace bridge and continue on. Pass the floral clock and follow directions for Niagara on the Lake. The Buttery seemed to be the only "less formal" place to eat., just past the clock tower on the main street. I think it is inexpensive for Niagara on the Lake, but expensive compared to Niagara Falls. A family of four will spend approx. $180 to eat here. Everything is great. I had Fish & chips AND an avacado &cucumber sandwich with a salad on the side. Soups are $7, the sandwich and salad was $10. For desert they had a blackbery crumble , a fool, an apple dumpling, and a missisipi mud!!!!! I choose the Missisipi mud because I am a chocolate lover. It was wonderful and it was the highlight of my birthday. It was made with an oreo cookie crumb type crust, with a cappicino flavored ice cream in the centre and a chocolatey fudge driseled on the top
Bad Breakfast Buffet
As guests of the Days Inn Near the Falls, we were given coupons for 20% off the breakfast buffet across the street. We went. It was not good. The bacon was either small burnt pieces or raw slabs. The eggs were runny. The pancakes dried out. The coffee bitter. And the Orange Juice was from concentrate....
I don't know if you would find it a better alternative, but Denny's is right across the street.
