A Quick Tip by Sharrie

  • Apr 19, 2011
Went a couple of times to Niagara Falls when I was schooling & vacationing in Toronto. The most memorable trip? Right in the middle of winter. That was definitely a sight! Water in motion while part of it were frozen. It's not everyday you see that in life! 

Niagara Falls is also the honeymoon city of the Canadians. Personally, as one of the great Falls, I prefer Iguazu Falls in Brazil over Niagara Falls. I've yet to see Victoria Falls so I can't determine which is the most awesome!

Do you want to know the best way I have ever spent $2? A visit to Niagara Falls, NY for the first time ever!!!! $1 toll to cross the bridge there, $1 toll to cross the bridge on the way out. Niagara Falls is about 7-8 hours west of Boston (therefore on our way home) so we decided we were going to stop and see them on our drive back to MN.  We got there just after sunset which is such a cool time to see it! This is a view of Niagara, ON which is just across the falls/river Ferris Wheel …

Niagara Falls can be magical in the winter when you spotted the water turned into ice and snow filled the entire area into an ice castle! Well, for one, you need to dress up for this occasion. Once is enough for me! (in the winter, that is!)

Wiki

The Niagara Falls are voluminous waterfalls on the Niagara River, straddling the international border between the Canadian provinceof Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. The falls are 17 miles (27 km) north-northwest of Buffalo, New York and 75 miles (121 km) south-southeast of Toronto, Ontario, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Niagara Falls, New York.

Niagara Falls is composed of two major sections separated by Goat Island: the Horseshoe Falls, which today is entirely on the Canadian side of the border,[1] and the American Falls on the American side. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the main falls by Luna Island.

Niagara Falls were formed when glaciers receded at the end of the Wisconsin glaciation (the last ice age), and water from the newly formed Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean. While not exceptionally high, the Niagara Falls are very wide. More than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow,[2]and almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 m³) on average. It is the most powerful waterfall in North America.[3]

The Niagara Falls are renowned both for their beauty and as a valuable source ...
