Buffalo-Niagara Falls ranked in top 20 for overseas visitors to U.S.
Tue, May 29th 2012 10:30 am
For the first time ever, the Buffalo Niagara region is one of the top 20 U.S. destinations for overseas visitors.

This month, the U.S. Department of Commerce's Office of Travel and Tourism Industries released its "Overseas Visitation Estimates for U.S. States, Cities, and Census Regions" report for 2011. The report estimates that the Buffalo-Niagara Falls metro statistical area received 335,000 visitors from outside the U.S., Canada and Mexico in 2011, making it the 20th ranked metro area in the U.S.

"We are pleased to receive confirmation that our worldwide sales efforts have paid off. From Niagara Falls State Park, to the historic Erie Canal and Old Fort Niagara, all of our attractions are impacted by this in-bound audience," said NTCC President and CEO John Percy.

County lawmaker launches video, website backing Olcott efforts
Thu, May 17th 2012 09:20 am
One Niagara County lawmaker has upped the ante in efforts to have Olcott Beach named America's "Ultimate Fishing Town," launching a video that highlights the caliber of fishing off the popular summer destination.

The video, which invokes images from the movie "Jaws," clocks in at just under two and a half minutes, and features video shot by Legislator John Syracuse and an entourage as they reeled in one hefty salmon after another from the cold, deep waters off Olcott earlier this month.

The video comes in response to the World Fishing Network's online contest to name America's Ultimate Fishing Town, which has drawn a devoted effort locally and on Facebook.
