Niagara Falls Destination Overview
majestic rumble of the falls can be heard from miles away, but the sight itself
never fails to cause the viewer to pause and gaze in wonder at the 600,000
gallon per second mass of hissing, frothing water crashing over a 170 foot cliff
amid huge clouds of spray and mist.
Canadian Falls, is also called the Horseshoe Falls (because of its shape). A
small body of land known as Goat Island divides the river into two channels. On
one side is the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, and on the far side across the border
is the smaller, American Falls. On sunny days rainbows rise just above the
Rainbow Bridge, the Queenston Bridge and the Bridge Street Bridge each span the
distance between the cities of Niagara Falls, New York, USA and Niagara Falls,
Ontario, Canada: two totally different worlds. Across the Canadian border in
New York State, the area beyond Niagara Falls is filled with the charm and
beauty of small rural towns. A State Park and a large industrial area of
Niagara Falls, New York border the American Falls.

features. One street, Clifton Avenue, retains a carnival midway atmosphere, but
there is a definite advantage to having all of the congestion and glitz confined
to one minute area. Controlled and planned growth has prevented the
proliferation of this type of attraction elsewhere.
