Vote Niagara Falls to be Added to Monopoly


For the firs time ever the public will be able to decide what cities are to be included in the Monopoly, Canadian Edition.  Surprisingly, Niagara Falls is not on the list of preselected cities. So, the only way to have Niagara Falls added is for everyone to vote for 2 wild-card spots.   The city with the most votes will occupy the coveted ‘Boardwalk’ spot.

  • The administrators will select 3 of their favourite stories and put them up for a vote to all users. Take a look at our Stupid Questions Contest to see how this voting system worked for us in the past.

  • Must provide your real name and email address so we can contact you if needed.
  • Contest closes April 30, 2009 **VOTING HAS BEGUN**

    Contest Poll

    There were many great responses to the “Stupid Questions Asked by Tourist” contest and we had a hard time picking just one. We have picked 3 of the best ones and have left it to a vote. Your vote can only be counted once. We will review the results in 24 hours from now and at that time the winner will be contacted. Good luck to those in the final 3.


    Time is Running Out

    The “Stupid Questions that Tourists Ask” contest is coming to an end soon. Get your entries in today.

    Stupid Tourist Questions Contest

    If you have ever worked in tourism anywhere near Niagara Falls Ontario, you have heard your fair share of stupid questions. The most common ones are “What time does the falls shut off?”, “Are we in Canada yet?” & “How far into Canada do I have to go before we have to drive on the other side of the road?” There are hundreds of stories out there, involving tourists, and I would like to compile a list of them.

    1. Submit your story/question below.
    2. Use your real email address.
    3. Must be or have been a resident of the Niagara Region of Ontario or New York State.
    4. If you win, we will contact you by email to get your full name and address.
    5. Contest closes on April 29, 2008 at 11:59 pm.
    6. The best story wins a $50 gift card to your favourite chain store or restaurant in Niagara.

    Good Luck
