Niagara Falls – Three awe-inspiring waterfalls in Ontario

Niagara Falls, Ontario, is a Canadian city at the famous waterfalls of the same name, linked with the United States (U.S.) by the Rainbow Bridge. Three awe-inspiring waterfalls situated on the border of Canada’s Ontario and the United States’ New York. These three falls combined, the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world (around 2,400 m3 per second).

Ontario side of the Niagara Falls is called Horseshoe Falls and offers the best views and most attractions. American Falls entirely on the American side. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also on the American side.

Horseshoe Falls is the most powerful waterfall in North America, as measured by vertical height and flow rate. The immediate area surrounding the Falls is a premier tourist spot teeming in observation towers, restaurants, souvenir shops, casinos and high-rise hotels.

Once you’ve seen the Falls (take a Maid of the Mist tour), explore the theme park-esque town that lives off the natural wonder’s tourist appeal. One can also journey behind the falls, going down 150’ to stand directly behind the falls – the back side of water being a can’t miss attraction! If you want to go higher – ride up Skylon tower 775’ above the falls where visibility on a clear day is 80 miles.
