Niagara Falls a top vacation choice for LICers?

"LIC residents big fans of the Horseshoe Falls? I don't know what to make of this one." - KingofNYCabbies

Niagara Falls Tourism's website,, tracks the cities where visitors are from and six of the top 10 are Canadian: Weston (near Toronto), East York, Ottawa, London, Toronto and Montreal. The three American cities in the top 10 are all from the metropolitan New York area - Brooklyn, Long Island City and New York City. Rounding out the list is London, England which finished ahead of Montreal.

Tourism figures raise hope for rebound

"There are a lot of Brits in town right now," she said. "A lot of tour buses are coming back and the helicopters are going crazy. We're getting a lot of Canadians coming around and from the U.S., we're getting a lot more out of New York."
