Thats Lake Erie, not Niagara Falls.. Niagara Falls flows into the Niagara River. The Niagara River also connects Lake Erie and Lake Ontario together. The river separates Niagara Falls Ontario from Niagara Falls New York. There are 2 different sets of falls...On coming off of the American side and the other coming from the Canadian side. The Canadian side of Niagara Falls is a Giant tourist attraction. 2 Casino's over looking the falls aswell as hotels. I've been to the American side a bunch of times, seeing as im only 10 minutes away, and theres not much to offer there as far as tourist attraction go. Although they do have one Casino there, but the Casino in Canada is usually packed with Americans because you only have to be 19 to get into the casino's here, and the exchange on the dollar makes it better to Gamble.

There was once a place in Ontario called "Berlin" but was changed to Kitchener during the second world war. Just a lil info incase you were all wondering....*shrug*

We named a bunch of towns in Ontario after cities of other countries. We've got a Paris as well, and before WWII we had a Berlin. I'm not really sure why. Maybe so really cheap game shows could have prizes that seem better than they really are.

"Win a trip to London!*"

(*Ontario)

Anyway, Americans posing as Canadians on vacation isn't really a new thing (Of course, a REAL Canadian could spot a faker a mile away. Where's your Tim Hortons mug?).
