For some reason, the International Business Times thinks that Niagara Falls is one of the worst places to visit:
Niagara Falls (Canada – U.S.A border)
There was a time when the Niagara Falls was considered to be among the most romantic destinations in the world. However, along with the rapid growth in the tourism infrastructure of the region, the Niagara Falls suffered explicit commercialisation. The Canadian part of the spot is often criticised for several reasons. Waiting in customs queues and lack of parking facilities can be hassling for many tourists
I came across a cool “infographic” about the 50 most popular tourist destinations in the world. According to the information in the chart, Niagara Falls is the 6th most popular tourist destination in the world. It seems hard to believe, but that is what is shows (data from Forbes Traveler).
From the Niagara Falls Review:
So what does the billionaire owner of Ripley Entertainment Inc. do when he’s in Niagara Falls?
Believe it or not, Jim Pattison Jr. is just a regular tourist. He’ll visit Marineland, hit a winery, maybe check out the museums (he owns three of them, after all).
But most of all, he takes in the falls themselves. It’s the one thing none of the other tourist destinations can offer.
“Las Vegas is man-made, Orlando is man-made,” he says. “Niagara Falls is God-made. That’s what makes it different.”
