Ten journalists who focus on tourism are spending three days in Niagara County prior to their conference in the Finger Lakes later this week.

The Midwest Travel Writers Association (MTWA) are being shown the sights by the Niagara Tourism and Convention Corp. The group will participate in an agenda that showcases the region, including a pair of stops in Lockport and two tastes of Lockport at other stops.

On the list of stops Tuesday is Lockport Locks & Erie Canal Cruises, and the First Presbyterian Church — where they will view the church's famous Tiffany Windows. They will also be treated to a dessert bar from Cream & Sugar Cafe while at Old Fort Niagara, and wine from the Flight of Five Winery while at the Remington Tavern & Seafood Exchange in North Tonawanda.

Other events for the tourism writers and photographers include a visit of Niagara Falls State Park, a ride on the Maid of the Mist, and a sampling of culinary favorites at Hard Rock Café in Niagara Falls. Accommodations for the journalists are provided by The Giacomo Hotel, a boutique hotel in downtown Niagara Falls.

During their stay the group and NTCC will be using the social media hashtag #tasteniagara to track and publicize what they find appealing, interesting and useful to their respective audiences.

“We were thrilled to hear that Niagara USA was the most requested pre-tour of the MTWA conference. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to highlight some of our top attractions, eateries and accommodations to this esteemed group of travel writers,” said John Percy, NTCC president and CEO. “We look forward to seeing continued coverage beyond this trip.”

Among the attendees are writers with credentials from AAA, Woman’s Day, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Chicago Tribune, and published guide book authors and photographers.

Following their three days in Niagara County, they will head east to their bi-annual meeting in the Finger Lakes, hosted by Finger Lakes Visitors Connection – the tourism agency for Ontario County.
