I am a maverick compared to many other people because I do not like gambling and I do not believe that I would win a fortune. Naturally, I know when you do not dare to gamble you cannot win. I tried it a few times but I decided to spend my money for things I need or love.
Years ago I went with my son and his wife to the first casino in Niagara Falls. This experience kept me away. I only played one time and lost everything - 25 cent. I did not like it. I purchased one beer in a tiny little glass for $ 4.50, visited after that the flooded rest room and was happy when we drove home.
I learned that many things have been improved since that. A friend who loves gambling, invited me to the lunch buffet. There are now two casinos - the old one and a new one.
As a good customer he received a special pass which gives him many benefits such as free valet parking. You can also get free tickets for certain events.
In order to pay for all that the casino naturally hopes that you lose lots of money - otherwise they could end like GM.
I loved the buffet and the friendly service and the rest rooms were now very clean.

Elizabeth, my wife, also loves to gamble. She told me that it is lots of fun for her and that she puts a limit on the amount to lose - 25 dollars. She explained that she won a couple of times and that she used the money to purchase cat food and to get two stray cats neutered respective spayed for an animal association.
Naturally with her occasional visits, she does not qualify for all the benefits which the casino offers to "professional gamblers". Last time when she tried to meet friends she paid 30 dollars just for parking.
Other friends offered us two free tickets for an event in the new casino and I went with Elizabeth after she promised me that we do not gamble.
I must admit that I am glad that I came with her. We had a nice evening with a great show. Our friends gave us even a ticket for free parking. One of the benefits when you are a steady gambler!
After we have dropped off our car I entered this new temple for the first time and was impressed.

The dome at the main entrance

A very elegant atmosphere with classy stores which you do not see to often. Certainly a good place do some shopping. Some stores offered discounts up to 50%.

Classy stores

Restaurants for fine dining. Some of them are open for 24 hours. Certainly a place to celebrate if you won a large sum.

A restaurant

While Elizabeth was waiting for another couple I used the chance to expand my sightseeing tour.
I used the "back door" to go outside.
Now, I was really surprised!
On my way out it was to see a fast food place. As you can see at 8 pm there were not too many diners. I thought the fine restaurants were at least as busy.
I found a nicely paved and very clean area reserved to pedestrians.
I discovered soon observation points which allowed great sights to the falls and the Niagara River.
Despite my walking problems I think I made it to all the observation platforms and I took many pictures.
It was not crowded, quiet and peaceful.
I think it is a must to visit this new casino. Nice restaurants, air conditioned in summer, fine stores and the beautiful sights shall attract also no-gamblers.

The "back door"

I was impressed by the outdoor settings. Nice plants, no litter, and everybody was in a good mood.
The various observation decks animated even me to walk - after an accident I have problems, eventually also because of my age.

The Canadian Falls

I recommend to include visit of this place when you come to Niagara Falls. As I said, you must not gamble. Enjoy a good meal, buy tickets for a show, do some shopping and sightseeing.

Another surprise. I never expected to see wildlife in this pretty setting with so many visitors - a raccoon.
We live in downtown Welland and I certainly I should not have been surprised. We have lots of companions in our backyard - straying cats, at least one opossum, a skunk, and also raccoons's. After all these animals are well fed by Elizabeth, they do not do any damage to our property and hardly fight with each other.
Only occasionally the cats become bored from getting served always the same food and we find some leftovers of birds. They never eat the feathers!
