From the Niagara Gazette:
New York state has launched a new campaign aimed at boosting tourism in the Lake Ontario region in response to recent flooding that has impacted communities along the shoreline.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the new initiative on Wednesday, saying it includes free fishing on Lake Ontario, St. Lawrence River and Lower Niagara River through Labor Day as well as 50 percent off state campgrounds and vehicle entrance fees along the lake and river.
From a press release seen on dBusinessNews:
GotoBus.com has compiled the widest and most affordable selection of Niagara Falls tours available online for the Labor Day holiday. Niagara Falls is a popular, must-see destination for both domestic and international travelers, and draws roughly 13 million visitors each year. It is the perfect combination of beauty and power, with nearly 4 million cubic feet of water flowing over the crest every minute.
From the Long Island International Travel Examiner:
Make a run for the border (the other one) to get away this holiday weekend. The Ontario side of Niagara Falls has many popular restaurants, bars, attractions and, of course, those Falls. (Do you know there are several different ones?)
When I drove there in July, it took approximately 9 hours from mid-L.I., but I stopped a couple of times and got lost in the Bronx.
