Niagara Falls is a beautiful location with three scenic waterfalls. The site is considered to be a Natural Wonder of the World that greets over twenty-two million people each and every year! Niagara Falls is located on the international border between the state of New York in the United States and Ontario, Canada. Visitors can view the falls from footpaths at the top of the cliffs or via boat amid the waters that the falls cascade into. The falls are even lit up at night so that people can view them 24 hours a day!

• At their highest peak the falls are 167 feet tall.

• There are actually three waterfalls that make up Niagara Falls. The largest is called “Horseshoe Falls,” the second largest is the “American Falls,” and the smallest is called the “Bridal Veil Falls.”

• Safety is a serious concern at Niagara Falls since people have fallen into the water and drowned. Additionally, over the years many dare devils have attempted to ride down the falls after being stuffed into a barrel—needless to say, many such attempts did not end well.
