Click the photo or link below to view to a great local (well… if you’re from Pittsburgh) news segment/article about Niagara Falls in the winter. Like the reporter who put together this piece, Niagara Falls is a place I have visited with my family and friends many times over the years. After viewing it, I called my mom who I knew had also watched it. We agreed that it felt like he was talking about our hometown!
The only problem I have with the segment is that David Highfield “outed” our favorite breakfast spot – Falls Manor. He calls it out for the price – but it is also the best breakfast in town (but I would have liked to keep that our little secret!)
Anyway, he did a nice job speaking about our “hometown”. Happy viewing!
From the Buffalo News (includes video):
Attractions in the Niagara Falls area are highlighted as part of a media campaign running in six cities for the next six weeks.
The Niagara Tourism and Convention Corp. kicked off a media campaign on Tuesday, it announced in its monthly e-newsletter.
The campaign includes online, radio and TV ads, as well as on-air contests and promotions. Officials are targeting the Syracuse, Elmira, Pittsburgh, Erie, Pa., Cleveland and Columbus markets.
The following question (with submitted answers) was posted to The Pitt 10 web site:
My Husband And I Are Planning To Visit Niagara Falls. How Far Is It From Buffalo Airport?
What activities should we consider? We are only staying for 3 days before we continue our trip to Pittsburgh.
Any recommendation for the hotels, restaurants, etc.?
Is it best to go on guided tour or is it easy enough to explore it on our own? Thank you so much for your answers.
From The Journal-Register (in Medina, NY):
A Pennsylvania writer took pains in a recent travel story to defend the American side of Niagara Falls, widely considered inferior to its Canadian counterpart.
Jack Markowitz of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, in a story discussing the Cataract City, said that even with increased international border security, there is no need for Pennsylvanians to obtain passports to have fun in the Niagara Frontier.
“The American side of the falls is unexpectedly better in some ways than the more celebrated Canadian (side),” he wrote.
