Niagara Falls celebrates successful tourism season

Niagara Falls has a lot to celebrate.

That's the word from Niagara Falls Tourism Chairman Wayne Thomson who tells CKTB's Lee Sterry tourism numbers are up by about 10 percent.

He says to be specific, Clifton Hill, the Fallsview area, and Victoria Centre just wrapped up the most successful season ever.

Thomson says more remote areas like Lundy's Lane, which is in transitional period from a tourism sector to a business area is probably experiencing the opposite.

Thomson says the exchange on the dollar, an increase in American tourists, and the Live with Kelly and Ryan show featuring the Prime Minister all added to the boost in numbers.
