Niagara Falls has long been a honeymoon destination. The beauty, energy and excitement of the raging falls seems to echo the passion of newlywed couples. But how did it become known as the ‘Honeymoon Capital of the World?’
Credit for the first recorded honeymoon at Niagara Falls goes to the daughter of US Vice President Aaron Burr who spent her 1802 honeymoon there. Shortly after that the brother of Napolean Bonaparte took his new bride to the falls and captured the attention of the world. Countless couples have celebrated their nuptials at the Falls over the last 200 years.
Since 1959, nearly one million couples have taken advantage of the opportunity to receive a ‘Honeymoon Certificate’ signed by the mayor of Niagara Falls, ON which is a spectacular keepsake and comes with a free pass to many of the areas attractions.
