Halifax, Nova Scotia is a rare example of a historic city that hasn’t lost touch with it’s history, or what it can offer the modern traveler. And while there’s no shortage of chain hotels where you can stay within the city core, there’s also thankfully a couple of unique hotels as well. Out of all of them, if you’re looking for something special, the one that really stands out though is the Lord Nelson Hotel.
Few cities in Canada offer the spectacle, or even the culture, that lives and breaths in Québec City. Throughout 2005 I’ve managed to travel across the country, with stops in Vancouver, Banff, Winnipeg, around Ontario, and throughout parts of New Brunswick and even into Prince Edward Island. Compared to the raw energy and vibrance in Québec City though, I can’t think of a place I want to revist and explore more.

Since opening in June the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort has been a hot topic. Staff writer Christopher Heard initially wrote about the experience when the facilities debuted to the media, but since then it seems people want to know more about what the hotel has to offer. With that in mind I recently took a weekend trip through the Niagara region – ending with a stay at the Fallsview that I must admit, impressed me in almost every way. It’s inevitably a great trip for anyone looking to gamble a bit, see the scenery, and enjoy one of the nicest areas in Southern Ontario.
Niagara Falls has long been a favorite destination for end of the school year class trips, for inexpensive honeymoons, and of course as the location of one of the Seven Wonders of the World. But lately it has also become a gaming destination mainly because of Casino Niagara, a large casino that attracts a considerable amount of US dollars from eager gamblers pouring in from across the border. Now, with the official opening of the stunning new Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort, Niagara Falls has taken a huge step towards making Niagara Falls a mini Las Vegas right here in Ontario.
