Quick now, what’s one of the first things can come in your mind when I mention Niagara Falls? If you said, “honeymoon”, you win the prize.
Honeymooners and second – honeymooners have been making their way to Niagara Falls on their “Honeylunacy” as it used to be called, for over 200 years. There’s a mystic here unequalled anywhere in the world and no other place is associated with honeymoons more than Niagara Falls. Here are a few reasons why.
First of all, we have a romantic waterfall that will mesmerize you. We’ve even named one of them, The Bridal Veil Falls” in honour of your visit.
Since 1949 we’ve handed out just under a million (and continue to do so) “Honeymoon Certificates” signed by the mayor that proves you spent your “official” honeymoon in Niagara Falls. It gives you bragging rights to take back home. Even better, the certificate gives you a free ticket to numerous Niagara attractions and discounts at falls restaurants. It’s almost like getting the key to the city.Several Niagara Falls Hotels have developed romantic getaway packages that guarantee you wonderful memories of your Niagara honeymoon.
During the summer months we even have our own Love Boat. The Maid of the Mist has been taking honeymooners and countless other visitors to the base of the falls since the mid 1800’s. Former U.S. president Jimmy Cater and his wife Rosalyn celebrated in 1996 their 50th wedding anniversary with a ride aboard the famous vessel. So why not consider what Polly and Ray Cutler did in the 1952 block buster movie, “Niagara” starring Marilyn Monroe and come to Niagara Falls on your honeymoon. They enjoyed themselves and so will you. I think Marilyn was a bit jealous!
