Niagara Falls is considered to be one of the most famous waterfalls in the world. This is known as a source of hydroelectric power. Aside from its ability to supply electricity, a lot of people also known Niagara Falls as one of the tourist attractions that can be found in between the United States and Canada.

Some even make it a point to secure visas for both countries so that they can see the Niagara Falls on both sides. People may have different opinions on which side they think is the best. It would usually depend on people and what they believe is better in their opinion.

Niagara Falls is one of the most legendary waterfalls in the world. It straddles the border of the United States and Canada. It has been a favorite tourist attraction for over 200 years, as well as a chief source of hydroelectric power. Niagara is made up of three distinct waterfalls: Horseshoe Falls, (Canadian Falls) American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.

Altogether, the median width of the entire falls is 3,950 feet. The three cascades shape the second largest waterfall on Earth, and more than six million cubic feet of water rush over the falls every minute. Countless visitors and tourists have attempted to make history by going over the waterfalls or crossing it unconventionally. Some people have succeeded with this, but not everyone.

You cannot go to Ontario, Canada, or New York, United States, without checking out the Niagara Falls. This is definitely one of the tourist spots that you are expected to visit when you are there. Some people would describe it as a “geological wonder.” It is gorgeous plus it is one of the main sourced of hydroelectric power.

It is obvious that the water in the falls can be very strong, and people will not be able to survive if they try to go directly under the heavy stream of the falls. Yet, people are given the option to see the falls through the great panoramic view in Canada or experience getting sprayed by the water from the falls in New York.
