Niagara Falls, NY is named after the famed waterfalls of the Niagara River shared with the Canadian city of Niagara Falls, Ontario just on the other side. This city is in the Buffalo metro area and it is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the country. Historically, the city was founded in 1892 and founded around factories that used the waterfalls for energy. Since then, the area near the falls and adjacent to downtown has been name the Niagara Falls State Park and is protected from factories operating there.

Traditionally, visitors to the area stayed on the Canadian side of the border. Niagara, Ontario greatly built up its tourism industry in the 1990s, becoming known as the “Las Vegas of Canada.” Niagara, NY hotels did not begin to take off until 2004 when the Seneca Indian tribe opened the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in 2004. Since this time, more and more U.S. visitors have decided to stay on the American side of the border.
