The main attraction of the park is, of course, the waterfalls. Visitors can enjoy views of American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls, which have designated viewing platforms nearby.


Some facts about Niagara Falls:

  2. Niagara Falls is located on the border between the state of New York in the USA and the province of Ontario in Canada. This makes it one of the few waterfalls that belong to two countries at the same time.
