Canadian Horseshoe Falls
Favorite thing: Canadian Falls or those that attouched to Canadian territory and look like a horseshow (or a moon for me) fall 52 metres (170 feet) into the Maid of the Mist Pool (compare to 21-34 metres (70 to 110 feet) of American Falls.
About 12,000 years ago, Niagara Falls was 11 kilometres (7 miles) downstream from its present position. Until the early 1950s, the Falls eroded at the average rate of one metre (3 feet) per year.
Since then, major water diversions have spread out the flow more evenly, slowing the rate of erosion at the Falls. These include the Sir Adam Beck #2 Generating Station (1954) on the Canadian side of the border, the Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant (1961) on the American side of the Niagara River, and the International Control Works (1954-1963).
It is suggested that now the rate of erosion could be as low as 30 centimetres (one foot) every ten years.

Favorite thing: This is America, you have plenty of options to see the falls... but the easiest (and also cheapiest) one is to just walk to the view point, located just right on the Canadian fall edge. Even you may touch the water just before it falls down, from the viewing point secure ground.

Favorite thing: visit the Falls on the Canadian side.
The Horseshoe Falls are two and a half times the length of the American Falls, and carry four times as much water.
Fondest memory: The Falls here are approximately 170 ft high and 2200 ft wide. The river at the base is actually deeper than the height of the Falls, at 184 feet.
