    Hey folks, forgot to mention. Will be visiting the Falls in June. Driving up from PA.

    Any suggestions on places to see, where to eat, what to try, etc.?

    Thanks!
    Well the Falls of course.. :chuckle Then go around to the wax museums. Fun!
    Niagra Falls is not a big place but has many many retaurants. I couldn't tell you where to go. Same with all the motels. I would suggest staying at a Hotel instead. The motels are pretty much geared towards honeymooners with a lot of wear in the rooms! Theres some pretty new Hotels in the area.
    Have fun!!

    Whooo HOO rolllllllllllllllllllllll Up the Riiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmmmm! This is a great thread. I work in Michigan and live in Canada. I am always getting caught for my "accent" for say out or about. Or how I say what a BP is.

    You know you are really Canadian when you know who the Bare Naked Ladies are and get their Lyrics and if you know who Great Big Sea is and are not afraid to listen to the lyrics and JIG.

    Thanks for the laugh

    AAAAAAAAAAAAH! My two favourite bands! I've met members of both bands and I love them. The only time I had personal contact with Bob Hallett was when he was fleeing some fans and knocked me down....

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Thank you so much everyone. You made me feel like coming home.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Here's my list for you know you are Canadian...

    [font=Comic Sans MS]It's "Kentucky Fried Chicken" not "KFC"
    [font=Comic Sans MS]You say battery like "Bat-tree" not "Bat er e"
    [font=Comic Sans MS]You know what Maple Buds, Sweet Maries, Big Turks, and MacIntosh Toffee are.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]If you've ever brought Smarties in bulk (especially to bring to all your Canadian friends in Florida, like I have!)
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Ketchup chips, salt and vinegar chips, Old Dutch Taco flavored tortillas.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]You've ever been accused of being bulemic because you were bringing such large quantities of smarties, chips and other junk to Florida for your Canadian friends.
    [font=Comic Sans MS]Wildberry Vodka Coolers and Caesars (no, not the salad!)
    [font=Comic Sans MS]If you have ever said, "Let's go down to the bar and have a Labatt's after the hockey game, eh?"
    [font=Comic Sans MS]And my own personal favorite...
    [font=Comic Sans MS]You practice your Canadian accent for 2 weeks before going home from Florida so everyone doesn't think you talk like a Southerner.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]I've been living in Florida for 12 years, married to a Michigander and was born and raised in Canada. I was also educated in French. As a result, I have this totally crazy accent that no one can fathom where I'm from.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]Have a great day. Beauty, eh?

    [font=Comic Sans MS]PS: I'm going home in a little over a week and I am going to eat my way through Alberta.

    [font=Comic Sans MS]I was looking at the "We say, they say" again and I thought of something funny. The first time I had to have an exam invigilated down here, the librarians at the local college didn't know what an invigilator was. They had to look up the word in the Oxford English dictionary to find out what they were supposed to do! When they figured it out, they were so thrilled. They like the word "invigilate" better than "proctor". I've written several exams there since and they are always happy to see me so they can "invigilate".
