    From the Times Record News:

    I’d never given Niagara Falls much thought until the other night when I watched the ‘50s movie thriller fittingly named “Niagara” on TCM. Its scope, even on film, was compelling.

    Curiosity about this majestic wonder sent me on a tour of video and educational websites. So lean back and relax children while I fill in some blanks about this one time Mecca that held American honeymooners captive.

    I say one time Mecca because most travel authorities today no longer rank Niagara Falls as a prime honeymoon spot. The best places to ‘moon in fast-paced modern America include several islands of Hawaii, Jackson Hole, Charleston, Vail, Lake Tahoe and Lost Vegas.

    Iguaçu Falls, in Argentina, may be the largest waterfall system in the world and Angel Falls, in Venezuela, the highest, but, when it comes to attracting crowds, no­where beats Niagara. Each year, 12 million tourists, many of them honey­mooners, peer through the spray as the equivalent of an Olympic size swimming pool of water tumbles over the edge every second.

Some are obvious choices (who could resist the honeymooners’ classic Niagara?), others are more obscure (ever heard of Langfoss?), but they all share an important quality: One look, and you’re bound to be transfixed for hours.
