    From the Niagara Falls Review (the article says tomorrow, but it is actually today/Thursday):

    The American Falls will have a morning show feel to them Thursday night.

    As part of the Today Show’s 60th anniversary, NBC has arranged to have the show’s familiar red, orange and yellow colours illuminated on both the American and Horseshoe Falls, starting at 5 p.m. Footage will be shown on Friday’s Today Show, wrapping up a week of anniversary celebrations.

    “We’re having the Empire State Building lit up here in Manhattan, the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the CIRA Centre in Philadelphia,” says NBC spokeswoman Monica Lee. “We’re glad that everyone’s joining from each area.”

    Lee says Niagara Falls was a “natural” choice for producers to tap, and Today Show hosts have been hyping it all week. The colours will be displayed until midnight.

    From the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal:

    A Philadelphia TV reporter called Niagara Falls a great option for parents in need of a good getaway destination for their families.

    David Murphy with WPVI brought his family to Niagara County recently. He recommended to travelers coming from the east to utilize Route 18 to get to Niagara Falls: “The final miles into the falls area are especially exciting using this approach, because the road south from the Great Lake (Lake Ontario) parallels the gorge cut by the falls before they receded back to their current position.”

    Someone with a WordPress blog posted about a recent trip to Niagara Falls, along with some travel tips:

    after what seemed like forever, our departure date finally came! We left early on a Sunday morning to board a tiny plane, taking us from Philadelphia to Buffalo. We had no issues with security, we were becoming quite good at getting through without any major issues or horrible looks from fellow travelers. The flight was quite short and we arrived into Buffalo on time. We rented our car and started on our adventure.
