    What do you love about Niagara Falls?

    The city of Niagara Falls has launched a new photo/video contest asking residents what makes Niagara Falls special to them.

    “When you think of Niagara Falls, what puts a smile on your face?” asked Niagara Falls mayor Jim Diodati…

    Contestants do not have to live in Niagara Falls, but must have a connection to the city

    How Niagara Falls earned the title of Honeymoon Capital

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s an appropriate time to recall Niagara Falls’ lengthy and prominent role in the world of love and romance — a role especially renowned due to the city’s fame as a honeymoon destination.

    The tradition of newlyweds coming to Niagara began, it appears, in the late 1830s. One piece of evidence to support this dating is a popular song of 1841.

    The first verse goes like this:

    Oh the lovers come a thousand miles,

    They leave their home and mother;

    Yet when they reach Niagara Falls,

    They only see each other.

    By the 1880s a honeymoon at Niagara Falls was a firmly established custom that continued to grow, reaching a peak in popularity between the 1920s and the 1950s. For many, Niagara Falls is still the Honeymoon Capital.

    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.”
