From an EU News Network press release:
Economic woes and an episode of the TV comedy “The Office” have lured honeymooners to the U.S. and Canadian sides of Niagara Falls, experts say.
Kate Scaglione, a spokeswoman for the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corporation, told CNN the number of hits on the wedding section of its Web site went up 83 percent the day after Jim and Pam married on “The Office.”
Some honeymooners have said Niagara lured them because they could avoid the expense of flying. The area has a retro charm, Rebecca Dolgin of TheKnot.com, said.
The Falls have lured newlyweds since the early 19th century when Aaron Burr’s daughter spent her honeymoon there. In the 1950s and 1960s, the region billed itself as “the honeymoon capital of the world.”
