The January/February 2013 issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray named the Cave of the Winds in Niagara Falls State Park in its "50 Coolest, Craziest, Tastiest Things To Eat, See and Do Before You Kick the Bucket!" feature article.
The inclusion came to fruition after the magazine contacted the Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp. late last year, searching for where visitors can "get wet at Niagara."
The Cave of the Winds was ranked No. 7 out of a list of 50 things to do before you "kick the bucket" by author David Farley. He recommends the Cave of the Winds as the attraction to visit in Niagara USA, in order to get as close to the falls as possible. The mention also includes fun facts about the Cave of the Winds, including how the wooden staircases are rebuilt every year, and that Niagara Falls State Park is the oldest state park in the U.S.
"Being ranked in the top 10 of this checklist solidifies what we have known for decades: Niagara Falls is a 'bucket list' destination," said John Percy, NTCC president and CEO. "Niagara USA lures visitors from all over the world every year, and being able to get up close and personal with the falls is part of the appeal."
The Cave of the Winds at Niagara Falls State Park is listed among other popular American sites and activities, including driving cross-country on Route 66, seeing Alaska's Northern Lights, driving through a Redwood forest and visiting Colorado's Sand Dunes National Park.
Every Day with Rachael Ray is a nationwide magazine that reaches more than 1.7 million readers per issue. The January/February publication is on newsstands now.
