Niagara Falls, Ontario, lies across the river from Niagara Falls, New York. Two cities, one name, but regardless of which country they are in, the main attraction is the Niagara Falls and these falls can best be seen from the Canadian side of the river.
The Falls is composed of two major sections that are separated by Goat Island. Horseshoe Falls is on the Canadian side of the border and American Falls is on the U.S. side. Bridal Veil Falls is also on the American side, but is separated from the main falls by Luna Island. Every second during summer daylight hours, more than 2,800 cubic metres of water crashes over the rim at a break-neck 40 mile (65km) per hour.
It's a favoured place to get married, a tradition dating back, it is said, to 1801. Loved-up couples start off married life with, perhaps, a tour of the falls in the Maid Of The Mist. Then, with families, they return on flights to Niagara Falls to take in the falls and perhaps the beautiful wine country that lies around the charmingly named Niagara-on-the-Lake.
