Niagara Falls

Spectacular falls providing a great tourist attraction on the Niagara river on the Canada-US border. The river, which flows from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, divides at Goat Island into two falls. The Horseshoe (Canadian) Falls are 54 m (176 ft) high and the crest of the falls is 675 m (2215 ft) wide. The American Falls are 56 m (184 ft) high and 323 m (1060 ft) wide. The river drops 98 m (320 ft) in 48 km (30 miles). The gorge is spanned by bridges and the waters have been harnessed for hydroelectricity.
