Bed And Bored At the Niagara Casino

sink.jpgAN advert for a holiday to Niagara. For those of you not cold enough, wet enough or bored enough, this is the trip of your dreams.

But this IS Niagara, you say. It rhymes with Viagra. It puts vim and added boost in our flagging life. Niagara is where people go down the waterfall in barrels. They walk over it on tightropes. It’s the top falls in the world of falls.

And then you get there. And it’s full of amusement arcades, sulky children and parents who know they shouldn’t have bothered.

But the Niagara tourist board presses on, presumably because to advertise a weekend break in Miami would be disloyal: “Niagara getaway packages offer ideal holiday excursions for families and couples.”

And: “From the Winter Festival of Light to New Year’s Eve Niagara Falls, there’s truly no place like Niagara for the holidays.”

But there is hope. There is the Niagara Fallsview Casino. From this venue you can look down on the falls – yes down. You look down on things you pity, belittle and squash beneath your plimsoll. At least your room has a telly.

And if you stay beyond New Year’s Eve you can catch – get this – Kevin Costner, along with his band Modern West.

Or stay in, run the tap on full and play Casino online  – with the Anorak bonus
