It’s a body of water that flows and amazes unlike no other.
Niagara Falls is an enormously popular tourist destination — from both the American side in New York and the Canadian vantage point in Ontario. Known as the honeymoon capital of the world, the Falls at Niagara are about 12,000 years old. They were formed when melting glaciers formed massive fresh-water lakes. The length of the brink is an astounding 1,060 feet and the height reaches 176 feet.
