Niagara Falls is a Canadian city on the Niagara River in the Golden Horseshoe region of south-central Ontario. The city is dominated by the Niagara Falls waterfalls on the Niagara River, and benefits from the fact that both falls (American Falls and Horseshoe Falls) can be best seen from the Canadian side. The natural spectacle brings in millions of tourists yearly.
The city permitted the development of a tourist area along the falls and the gorge. This area which stretches along the Niagara River parkway and tourist promenade is particularly concentrated at the brink of the falls and, apart from the natural attractions along the river, includes huge parking lots, souvenir shops, observation towers, the Falls museum, high-rise-hotels, casinos and theatres, mostly with too-much colorful neon billboards and advertisements. Even the rest of the city looks like a huge tourist point with bars and shopping center all along the highway.
Anyone who visits Niagara Falls will surely fall in-love with the waterfalls. The beauty and excellent view are breathtaking.It's highly recommended that if you have the time to take the boat tour (Maid of the Mist) that takes you close to the American falls and Horseshoe Falls. The feeling you get when arriving almost neck to neck with the falls is so exhilarating and unforgettable. Such greatness and inspiration from looking at the 2,600 foot (Canadian Falls) and 1,060 foot falls (American falls). Absolutely amazing!
I love Niagara falls, the first I came here I was but a child travelling with my Parents,I remember much but we didn't see the fall from the Maid of the Mist or view from above,which when you are young and small means you don't get the best view from ground level. So on returning here in 2011 with my youngest son I made sure we got the best views possible. This was mainly due to our coach driver asking if any of his passengers wanted take a Helicopter flight over the falls...well guess what I jumped at the chance...but my son needed convincing...lol. But after the flight we both agree how fantastic it was...PS we also did the Maid of the mist...I hope like the bus tour operator I used...any you should use treats you like we were treated...This is was from the Canadian side...Fantastic Day!!!
A million bathtubs of water per second tumble over these mammoth falls, splashing and spluttering, throwing gallons of mist into the air and drenching the countless visitors. While not the ta…
