A most glorious falls

Yes we know that there are many large and beautiful waterfalls in the world. And it is such a coincidence it is oftentimes the border between nations too. And the Niagara is no different. Like other renown sites such as Victoria falls or Iguazu falls, it sits on a human defined border.

Did you know that approximately 750,000 gallons of water fall over every second here?

We were fortunate to have spent time on both sides of the Falls, the US side first followed by the Canadian side the next day. Because you must. For trying to see it all in a day would only belittle the glorious views. At the time of our visit, it was so easy to walk across rainbow bridge between both sides without customs procedures. Yeah there was a customs officer on the US side but he was there only to ensure the crowd going across to the US side was orderly.

Go over to the Canadian side to observe all of the views. Get up high too and take in the panorama like our feature picture.

There were two beautiful days we ordered and received to enjoy the falls. Come reminisce with us our view of Niagara here. Which side of the falls (country) do you think the views of the falls are more spectacular?

  1. I have been there countless times since I live nearby and like the Canadian side because you get good views of the American falls and Horseshoe falls. However, maybe I’m biased because I am Canadian…

    1. LOL. Fnally a vote is made! That’ll show em’. Honestly that is our opinion too, if only because there are viewing platforms from the Canadian side but building restrictions on the US side. Its just geography dictating that we suppose.

    1. Both sides offer different perspective. While we certainly did not have the privilege of viewing the falls from up high on the US side, we did so from the Canadian side. But from the US side you can get really up close which one cannot from the Canadian side. Which is better? Hmm…. well it probably depends on what you want to see!

  2. I’m dying to visit Niagra Falls! It’s massive, and beautiful. 750,000 is quite a lot of gallons to be falling per second, I almost thought I read it wrong at first!

    1. Well, that’s what the literature in the web says… heheh not sure how it can be verified though. Anyway, it is enough to create a roar that we hear from afar. Wish you get there soon!
