In today's paper you read that Niagara Falls, hoping for another casino, wants to take a page from Las Vegas' tourism playbook.
But who would ever believe that Las Vegas, the casino capital of the country, is actually more family-friendly than Niagara Falls?
Just try going online to plan a family vacation there. Check out this Las Vegas tourism website, which includes more than 30 family and children's attractions in Sin City.
Among the draws are "America's largest indoor theme park," a water ride called Adventure Canyon, exotic animals, shark tanks, aquariums, and, of course, the Grand Canyon.
And here's one that would definitely fit in the Cataract City: a museum about the Mafia.
Why didn't Niagara Falls think of that?
