    Niagara Falls: the honeymoon capital Indians love to visit

    No Comments

    From the News India Times:

    Fourth time around, it cannot be a coincidence, for sure. My wife and I are now very certain of one thing: if there’s one tourist spot in America where more Indians frequent than any ‘Little India’ area in the United States, it’s Niagara Falls – the home of three majestic waterfalls spanning the boundaries of the United States and Canada, beautiful gardens and verdant vistas, with quaint, tiny islands one can cross by foot over bridges, strong riptides lapping at edges.

    Last week was my fourth visit to Niagara Falls in 17 years: the first time was with my girlfriend, when we were both graduate students in New York; then again after she and I got married, once when my parents visited from New Delhi, and my wife and I accompanied them; and now, with the kids and my wife in tow.

    From HospitalityNet:

    As we find ourselves in this precarious era of global travel and tourism, there is a sense that U.S. summer vacationers are staying just a bit closer to home in 2016. Canada has proven appealing for those who seek a travel experience while still remaining near. Thanks to the f traveling back and forth between Canada and America, many Americans are finding their neighboring country a desirable destination, perhaps more so today than in previous years.

    Why Isn’t Niagara Falls Known As The Most Romantic Place In America

    From MTV News:

    I just got married, which entailed many big decisions: What to wear? What to serve? Whom to invite? Holy s–t, do I really want to get married?!

    But perhaps there was no bigger decision than where to go for our honeymoon. My wife and I considered South American hotspots like Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, tropical locales like Antigua and Aruba, or even a long flight to Africa or Asia.

    One place we did NOT consider whatsoever? Niagara Falls. Who would possibly honeymoon in a spot most famous for having a stupid waterfall and confusing people as to whether it’s in America or Canada?

    A Timeline of Tragedy at Niagara Falls

    From Yahoo! News:

    Niagara Falls is a quintessentially North American phenomenon. Situated at the border between America and Canada, the roaring force of nature has captured the imagination of those who visit for centuries. Actually a collection of three falls, they are dramatic but can bring the reckless side out of tourists and daredevils.

    The latest victim went over Sunday, when a 19-year-old student visiting from Toronto lost her footing while climbing on a safety railing, plunged to the water below, then was swept over the falls. Following is a timeline of some of the other tragic events linked to the famous tourist destination.

    From the Niagara Gazette:

    It almost defies logic.

    Niagara Falls, N.Y. sits on the edge of one of the great wonders of the world.

    It boasts some of the highest-profile developers in America.

    The local governments have an array of economic development agencies and programs and assistance packages at the ready.

    Millions of visitors arrive each year, bringing with them millions of dollars in disposal income.

    And yet, the community as a whole continues to languish behind its more prosperous cross-border neighbor — Niagara Falls, Ontario, a city that is literally walking distance away.
