Destination: Niagara Falls from Canadian side
In the year 2015, I happened to visit Canada and stayed in the capital city Toronto with my relatives. They offered me a visit to Niagara Falls in their car. We set off in the morning and in about two hours, we were at the Niagara Falls.

The world famous Niagara Falls are 121 km south-southeast of Toronto, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario; and Niagara Falls, New York.

"Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls located at the international border between Canada and the United States. They provide a spectacular sight as a wonder of nature. Only seeing them is believing!," said my relative Naresh Dubey without describing any further.

When we reached the Niagara Falls, the water falls visible from the Canadian side were said to be having heights of around 50 metres with flow rates of over 2000 cubic meters per second with a roaring sound which was awe inspiring. There was description about the site on a signboard.

"But, the Horseshoe Falls is the most powerful waterfall, which is in North America. These falls on the American side are located 27 km north-northwest of Buffalo city and 75 miles from New York city," informed Dubey.

Two bridges, called Rainbow Bridge and Whirlpool Rapids Bridge were visible and many tourists and visitors were seen silently watching the falls and water flow in the river. Many were seen taking selfies and other were getting themselves photographed.

Many Hollywood movies have been shot around the waterfalls and have featured these bridges, told Dubey

There were horn-blower Niagara Cruises which could be booked in the morning and would take you to the Falls and you can feel the droplets that rise up due the enormous fall of water. Those who can afford head off to the Whirlpool Aero Car in the afternoon to have a close look at the Falls. However, we were late for that.

One can sit around on benches or walk around well laid out Botanical Gardens and have the fragrance of roses. We went to the tunnel to have a closer look at the falls. One can see the falls from the front as well as back and feel the soothing spray of droplets from the falls.

After spending about two hours watching the Falls, river, gardens, bridges and greenery on the rocks, you can visit other places like Falls-View Casino, Wild Play, Zip line, Nightmares Fear Factory, Adventure Course and the Skylon Tower for the best birds-eye view around of the Falls and the river.

One can find a lot of holidayers, honeymooners and empty nesters who have more things to do in Niagara Falls than ever before since over the years it has become a favourite destination of tourists across the world.

The place is full of hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops, golf courses, wine distilling units, and spas. If one can stay till dusk he or she could watch the fireworks and colour waterfalls, which I missed.
