Niagara Falls is the collective name for the 3 waterfalls: "Horseshoe Falls (The name is derived from its horseshoe shaped), the adjacent "American Falls" and the small "Bridal Veil Falls" (both are within the US border). Much of Horseshoe Falls is located on Ontario, Canada and that's why it's also called Canadian Falls.
The Bridal Veil Falls is named for its appearance and is located next to American Falls separated by a small piece of land called Luna Island (see my first photo above).
July 16, 2011- This was the last day of our trip in Canada before driving back to Ohio. We didn't have enough time to explore Niagara Falls in Canada but there lots of things to explore around the area than in New York. My brother-in-law (my husband's brother) and his kids went with us to the falls and we spent only a couple of hours before we parted ways. We parked in the Skylon Tower's parking lot but we didn't have the chance to go up to the tower to see the view (weird huh?!).
That day was a nice and clear than the day we first saw the falls in New York side. It was a perfect timing to take pictures although we got sunburned from the intense heat of the sun.
The view of Niagara Falls in Canada for me is better than New York, although the American side view is much closer to the falls...... so I guess it's better to see both ;-) like we did hehehe.
