A Geological Wonder


Niagara Falls is a group of three waterfalls that straddle the border between Ontario, Canada and New York, USA. They are known as the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. Together, they produce the largest flowing water rate of anywhere on the globe.

The falls are both natural beauties and a source of hydroelectric power. There’s a constant balancing act between managing the needs of the visitors, the falls and it’s industrial and commercial uses.

Why go to see Niagara Falls?

Why

There’s loads to do around Niagara falls, so you can really make a day of things.

The Hornblower cruise takes you up-close-and-personal with the frothy blue waters. Next to this, you will find Clifton Hills – a street filled with attractions. Everything from games, museums and haunted houses can be found here! There’s also the whirlpool rapids and floral clock to see, so make sure you leave enough time to do everything.

Faq?

Every second, 3,160 tons of water flows over the falls.

It’s over 10,000 years old.

Whether you see it close-up in the daylight or darkness, you’re guaranteed to be blown away. However, this may sway your decision: the last cruise of the night features food, dancing, music and alcohol.
