    Falling for Niagara Falls in a big way

    From Canada.com:

    Like Disneyland, Drumheller and a drive across Canada, Niagara Falls is one of those vacations on the familial bucket list.

    Renowned for a century as the “Honeymoon Capital of the World,” Niagara Falls is today built for families, offering accommodations, attractions and package deals much more in tune with nuclear families than newlyweds. Sure, you’ll still catch sight of dewy-eyed, drenched lovebirds cooing to one another on the Maid of the Mist bow, but more often than not they’ll be surrounded by screaming and soaked kids and parents.

    From CNN Travel:

    Amy and David Wieller got married right around the time one of television’s favorite onscreen couples did, but they have something else in common with Jim and Pam from “The Office”: They had a great time celebrating their love at Niagara Falls.

    Often considered a cliché — the region was made so popular by hordes of newlyweds in the 1950s and ’60s that it proclaimed itself the “honeymoon capital of the world” — Niagara Falls is getting a fresh look from modern lovers discovering its beauty and having fun with its retro image.

    “We just had a ball,” said Amy Wieller, recalling her Niagara honeymoon last September. “You kind of feel like a kid when you’re back there… [and] that view — you can’t not be romantic there.”
