I was watching some of the WIRED’s Autocomplete Interviews and I thought it would be fun to see what some of the common searches are for Niagara Falls:
I’m sure that all sorts of different attractions would love to have their names show up automatically!
I would think that Niagara Falls is considered a waterfall.
How much does it cost? You mean to buy all 3 waterfalls? I don’t think anyone could afford it! 🙂
From the Niagara Falls Reporter:
Niagara Falls has done it again, coming in at Number One on another list. And this list has nothing to do with the nation’s most dangerous cities, overtaxed municipalities or unwanted teen pregnancies, either!
Last week the readers of USA Today voted the Cataract City as the “Best Kid-Friendly Destination” in the country. The newspaper’s reasoning of the choice was scant, as is typical of USA Today.
“Only a handful of votes separated our winner from the runner up, but in the end, Niagara Falls, N.Y. came out on top,” the entry read. “Families flock to this northeastern city to experience the awe-inducing grandeur of this natural wonder, whether aboard the Maid of the Mist or from the Cave of the Winds. Aside from the cascades, Niagara is packed with other family-centric attractions.”
From The Ledger (in Lakeland, FL):
The water thunders down — 700,000 gallons per second, in fact — as we stand underneath Niagara Falls on the famous Hurricane Deck, part of the Cave of the Winds tour. We’re totally soaked, but we don’t care.
The sheer power of the water is mesmerizing. So are the rainbows over the falls. Did you know that 20 percent of the fresh drinking water in the United States goes over the falls and that Niagara Falls (www.niagara-usa.com) is the second largest power producer in the country? From the falls, the water travels to Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence Seaway and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Niagara Gazette reports that Cave of the Winds was expected to close on Wednesday, along with Maid of the Mist but a rockslide likely caused by heavy rains has caused the New York State Park Officials to close the Cave of the Winds Attraction early.
