As their name suggests they are situated completely within the United States. My experience of them was from the Canadian side and the Maid of the Mist.
American Falls can be seen clearly on the Canadian side and is the biggest of the three waterfalls that form Niagara Falls.
Sheer beauty. Best viewed from the Canadian Side. All pictures are taken from the Canadian side.
Funny ... cause the American side in my opinion has a better view of the Canadian Falls.
From Table Rock you can also view the American falls. I really think the Canadians got the better end of the deal. It's just more Amazing to view the falls head on than to see them from behind.
Take some time and try to ugnore the other people around you and picture yourself seeing these falls thousands of years ago...awesome.
Across the border is the American Falls. I have been on the American side before to go on a walking tour and maid of the mist, but unless you can't pass security I say you head to the Canadian side.
Head down to the main pathway, and DON'T FORGET THE EXTRA FILM!!
There are many points on the path set up to give you a different height or angle to look at the falls.
There is some magnificant power you can't help but take in when you see the falls. The power as the water pounds over and down!
