The Niagara Falls make up the largest waterfalls in North America and are considered one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. The falls are visited by millions of tourists every year and are famous not only for their beauty but also for their power, responsible for providing hydroelectricity for both the United States and Canada.
The American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls belong to the American side. Boat tours such as the Maid of the Mist take visitors on a ride straight into the base, where they can feel the power and mist from the 600,000 gallons of water falling each second. Niagara State Park, the oldest state park in America, offers scenic hiking and nature trails.
