Celebrities are tourists, too, and they also love to come to Niagara Falls.

They don’t announce their visits, of course, but in recent years everyone from Woody Harrelson to Brad Pitt with his kids, Katy Perry and David Letterman have been here.

Just this summer, ex-Toronto Raptor Kawhi Leonard came here right after the team won the NBA championship. Then he infamously left town to play in L.A., but we won’t get into that…

The only sure-fire way to spot a celebrity is to visit Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls.

Guaranteed, you will see faces there that you recognize.

Donald Trump, Madonna, George Clooney, Kim Kardashian – they’re all there in full likelike colour.

This is another one of the attractions in Niagara Falls that has stood the test of time, along with the haunted houses and novelty shops on the Hill.

Critics deride Clifton Hill as kitschy – but therein lies its charm. These places have lasted because people love them.

And why else would you come to Niagara Falls if not to have fun? You’re not here to please the critics, you came because it’s a fun place to escape to. So let loose!

Being on Victoria Avenue, that means Tussaud’s is close to casinos, the waterfront, all those zany Clifton Hill venues and more restaurants than you can imagine.

Reviews on Trip Advisor marvel at the number of wax figures on display and the fact they are not kept behind glass, so posing for selfies is easy to do.

Just a bit of history for you – Louis Tussaud was the great-grandson of Madame Tussaud, who created her own wax museums in Engliand in the early and mid-1800s.

Other Louis Tussaud’s wax museums are based in San Antonio and Grand Prairie, Texas; Pattaya, Thailand; and Bangalore, India. There are only five of them in the world.
