About Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls

Straddling the US-Canadian border, Niagara Falls is a world destination that draws around 12 million visitors per year. Niagara Falls is composed of three falls: American, Bridal and Horseshoe. They converge and crest over a 170-foot dolomite and shale cliff to plummet to the raging river below. All three waterfalls form the area that is collectively referred to as Niagara Falls, which reaches into the province of Ontario and New York state.

Niagara Falls is a sight to behold for the senses. The thundering roar of the falls mixes with the site of the aqua green water and rising mist, and the smell of the fresh, crisp air cooled by the torrent of water relentlessly spilling over the edge of the falls.

Some facts about the falls:

  • Niagara Falls is the second largest falls in the world based on the width
  • More than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m3) of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow. (Doing some GCAT math means that 10,053,120 pints of beer flow over the falls every minute!)
  • The waters in the river are owned partly by Canada and partly by the USA. The international border runs through the middle of the river.
  • The Frenchman Samuel de Champlain visited the area as early as 1604 during his exploration of Canada
  • Over 50,000 weddings are performed in Niagara Falls every year, The falls became a honeymoon destination in 1801 when the daughter of Aaron Burr (a Vice President of the United States) got married here. Millions have since followed suit.
  • In March 1848, ice blockage caused the falls to stop; no water (or at best a trickle) fell for as much as 40 hours.
  • The verdant green colour of the water flowing over the Niagara Falls is a byproduct of the estimated 60 tonnes/minute of dissolved salts and rock flour (very finely ground rock) generated by the erosive force of the Niagara River itself.
  • The cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada and Niagra Falls, New York, USA are connected by two international bridges, the rainbow Bridge and the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge
  • In October 1829, Sam Patch, who called himself "the Yankee Leapster", jumped from a high tower into the gorge below the falls and survived
