    Niagara Falls: the honeymoon capital Indians love to visit

    No Comments

    From the News India Times:

    Fourth time around, it cannot be a coincidence, for sure. My wife and I are now very certain of one thing: if there’s one tourist spot in America where more Indians frequent than any ‘Little India’ area in the United States, it’s Niagara Falls – the home of three majestic waterfalls spanning the boundaries of the United States and Canada, beautiful gardens and verdant vistas, with quaint, tiny islands one can cross by foot over bridges, strong riptides lapping at edges.

    Last week was my fourth visit to Niagara Falls in 17 years: the first time was with my girlfriend, when we were both graduate students in New York; then again after she and I got married, once when my parents visited from New Delhi, and my wife and I accompanied them; and now, with the kids and my wife in tow.

    From Syracuse.com:

    Everyone who makes their living in the tourism industry in the Niagara Falls area is talking about it.

    Summer 2016 was reported as an all-time high, with the Niagara USA Official Visitor Center, assisting over 103,000 people, a 16 percent increase over 2015.

    “I watched the old movie ‘Niagara’ with Marilyn Monroe and I said, ‘Hey let’s go,'” said David Sage of Monmouth, Ill. visiting Niagara Falls on Thursday with his wife of 33 years, Jeanette. It was their first vacation in 21 years and they spent two days doing it all, from Cave of the Winds, to the Over the Falls tour, the Aquarium, fireworks, and of course the Maid of the Mist, just like Marilyn.

    But there also a more modern twist at Niagara Falls — Pokemon Go.

    Justin Devoe and Dean Goranites, both of Kenmore were enjoying the “beautiful new walkways” while they searched for their virtual prey.

    “It’s really good down there. There’s a lot of sweet spots,” said Goranites of the Pokemon search. “We found out about it online and came down to check it out.”

    4. Visit Niagara Falls
    It’s pretty special. Give the tourist trap souvenir shops and CN Tower imitation a miss, though.
