Niagara Falls is for lovers again

Niagara Falls is in vogue again for honeymooners.

At least according to CNN.

The Cable News Network posted a story on its Web site today focused on young couples who have honeymooned in Niagara Falls.

Once considered a "cliché," Niagara Falls has been rediscovered by romantic couples, the story says. The trend was highlighted last year when fictional couple Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly of NBC's "The Office" tied the knot in the Falls in an hour-long special.

Rebecca Dolgin, executive editor of theknot.com, told CNN that Niagara Falls is part of a recent trend of retro honeymoons to places like Palm Springs, Calif., and the Poconos in Pennsylvania.

The Web site lists Niagara Falls among the top 19 honeymoon destinations in the United States and Canada.

"It's sort of kitschy and it's fun, and it's for couples who maybe don't take it too seriously," Dolgin told CNN. "I don't think anyone is going to come back from Niagara being disappointed. You know when you go there what you're getting into; it's the same kind of thing with Las Vegas."
