From Syracuse.com:

Everyone who makes their living in the tourism industry in the Niagara Falls area is talking about it.

Summer 2016 was reported as an all-time high, with the Niagara USA Official Visitor Center, assisting over 103,000 people, a 16 percent increase over 2015.

“I watched the old movie ‘Niagara’ with Marilyn Monroe and I said, ‘Hey let’s go,'” said David Sage of Monmouth, Ill. visiting Niagara Falls on Thursday with his wife of 33 years, Jeanette. It was their first vacation in 21 years and they spent two days doing it all, from Cave of the Winds, to the Over the Falls tour, the Aquarium, fireworks, and of course the Maid of the Mist, just like Marilyn.

But there also a more modern twist at Niagara Falls — Pokemon Go.

Justin Devoe and Dean Goranites, both of Kenmore were enjoying the “beautiful new walkways” while they searched for their virtual prey.

“It’s really good down there. There’s a lot of sweet spots,” said Goranites of the Pokemon search. “We found out about it online and came down to check it out.”
