As part of this new partnership, the former program has been given a full rebrand under the name Niagara Falls Business Events. In addition, the website, fallsmeetings.com, has been officially relaunched.
U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer To Canada – Be A Good Neighbor And Add More Border Agents – It’s a Win-Win
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer met with the new Canadian Consul General Phyllis Yaffe and Canadian Ambassador David McNaughton this December 1st and urged them to immediately address staffing issues that are causing long wait times at all international border crossings between Buffalo and Canada including the Peace Bridge.
Schumer said wait times this past summer got out of control because of a lack of available CBSA agents, and this lack of border agents could cause further delays during the upcoming busy holiday travel season, especially as construction begins on the Peace Bridge, reducing travel to one lane.
Canada, Eh?: The US Neighbor to the North Welcomes American Travelers and Enables a Mutually Beneficial Summer of Tourism
As we find ourselves in this precarious era of global travel and tourism, there is a sense that U.S. summer vacationers are staying just a bit closer to home in 2016. Canada has proven appealing for those who seek a travel experience while still remaining near. Thanks to the f traveling back and forth between Canada and America, many Americans are finding their neighboring country a desirable destination, perhaps more so today than in previous years.
From the Centre Daily Times:
New York State is one of few places where you don’t necessarily travel north to get to Canada.
A chunk of Southern Ontario actually lies south and west of the Empire State, making the nickname “True North” more of a quip.
And if you make it to Niagara Falls, you can find yourself in two places at once — a phrase that may seem like an oxymoron, but something that is, in fact, possible.
Niagara Falls is a collective name for three waterfalls that intersect the International Boundary Line in New York State and Ontario, Canada.
It’s also the name of the cities where the falls lie.
From the Buffalo News:
Virginia Celenza is not the kind of person to just sit down and take it easy. At 80-plus years old, she admits she is taking it a bit more slowly – but you would never know.
For Celenza and her late husband, Joseph, who died last year, retirement meant opening their own bed and breakfast. That was 25 years ago.
“Most people only do it for about five years,” she said.
Celenza said they wanted their house to be a home away from home for visitors. She said she loves to meet new people who travel from across the country and around the world to stay with her.
This isn’t directly related to Niagara Falls, but some of you may find it interesting.
From Business Insider:
New York may have Niagara Falls and the Statue of Liberty, but it’s not the most popular state for tourism.
That title goes to California, which is home to such iconic tourist attractions as the Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, and Disneyland.
From Deseret News:
For our family summer vacation this year, we decided a long plane trip wasn’t necessary. Perhaps I’d worn out my wife and kids on long-distance travel so we planned to just head north of the border and enjoy the sights of Ontario, Canada, specifically Niagara, for a change of pace.
We checked into the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel and immediately appreciated the spectacular view from our 11th-floor room situated directly across the Niagara River from the American Falls.
Waterfalls are one of nature’s most beautiful creations, and come in all shapes in sizes. Here are some of the most incredible waterfalls on Earth.
Niagara Falls come in at number 7 on their list:
Arguably the most famous falls, Niagara Falls is comprised of three waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. This popular tourist destination offers double the fun, as both the Canadian and American sides are home to additional attractions. You can see the falls any time during the year, but you will have the best weather if you visit between mid-May and mid-September.

Mary Umbricht of Seekonk, Mass., captured this beautiful photo of Niagara Falls.
Umbricht took the picture on Saturday while spending a long weekend in Canada. There was “a lot of color,” she told TODAY.com, and visibility was great due to no leaves on the trees.
