Niagara Falls Up Close, a new website dedicated to promoting the region has been launched. The site is located at and features important and interesting information for those wishing to visit Niagara Falls.

The site has no commercial connection to any hotel, casino, restaurant or governmental municipality in the region. Niagara Falls Up Close has been created solely to promote both the American and Canadian side of the border and to inform those with an interest in the Niagara Falls area. 

It features tourist-related information for lodging and sight seeing as well as interesting historical and news stories concerning Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls Up Close also features high-definition videos showing the beauty of the Niagara rapids and the falls themselves.

Several interesting stories are also chronicled on the site, such as Walt Disney once considered Niagara Falls as a possible site for Disney World, the Miss USA Pageant presence in the 1970s, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio’s secret restaurant and Bigfoot sightings in the 1980s, just to name a few.

Niagara Falls Up Close was created by All Services WNY, which also created the web site promoting local professional, college and sports teams.

Any web site interested in creating a link to is welcome to do so. Submissions to the website can also be e-mailed to
