Niagara Falls is said to be the biggest waterfall on the river Niagara.The falls cover the international border between Ontario Province ofCanada and the State of New York. The Niagara Falls is 27 km (17 miles)long from the north to the northwest of Buffalo, New York and 120 km(75 miles) long from south to southeast of Ontario. The Niagara is saidto be the mightiest falls on the planet earth. It is known both for itsbeauty and as the source of hydraulic power. Thus balancing out boththe commercial and industrial usage of the falls have been seen to bevery challenging. The Niagara Falls is made up of three smaller falls called the Horseshoe Falls, American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. The Horseshoe Falls is said to be the best & most beautiful out ofall the falls. This falls is located on the Canadian side. The name ofthe falls has been derived due to the shape the falls. The AmericanFalls is a little less impressive than the Horseshoe as it has almostnine times less water in it and that is way it is not very striking tosee. The third falls, the Bridal Veil Falls, is even thinner that theAmerican Falls, but the mist that surrounds the falls gives a look ofthe veil of a newly wedded bride.Some of the main tourist attractions around the Niagara Falls include the Maid of the Mist (boat cruise), Journey Behind the Falls(platform and tunnels below the falls), Illumination of the Falls,Observation Tours and the Imax Theater that gives an educational tourof the falls . The most visited time is during the summer due to itsdaytime and evening attractions.
