Niagara Falls – Niagara Falls, Ont.
Niagara Falls are Canada’s most famous falls—and understandably so. Actually made up of three different falls, the aptly named Horseshoe Falls is the only one located on the Canadian side. Easily accessible and awe-inspiring, Horseshoe Falls is the most powerful in North America. Receding glaciers formed the falls thousands of years ago and the beautiful green colour is due to dissolved salts and finely ground rock. Multiple viewing options are available including the Hornblower boat cruise which replaced the Maid of Mist tour boat, which operated from 1846-2013 and was North America’s oldest tourist attraction. In 2007, the base of the falls was used to portray “World’s End” in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
