    Niagara Falls

    by Kenward Updated Nov 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Nature has left an indelible mark on the Niagara region. The Canadian Falls, with a height of 54 metres (177ft), and the American Falls, at 56 metres (184ft) high, are true wonders of nature. Royalty, poets, and celebrities have all come to Niagara to experience its awe inspiring wonders...simply majestic!

    Favorite thing: I had no idea that Niagra falls would be soooooo touristy and commercial. It was a mess of souvenir shops, amusement park-type rides, casinos, hotels, and chain restaurants. It was entertaining enough for the afternoon that my brother and I spent there - we had a tasty lunch at The Hard Rock Cafe, but this really isn't my cup of tea.

    Favorite thing: These are the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Throughout the 1800's and 1900's there have been countless attempts, many unsuccessful, to descend these falls. I thoroughly enjoyed going through the 'DAREDEVILS' section of the site listed in my intro. One of the more interesting stories is of a 7 year old boy, named Roger Woodward. In 1960, because of a boating incident up stream, he was swept over the Horseshoe Falls wearing nothing but his swimming trunks. He survived with mere scratches and bumps. The only person to have ever survived the falls un-equipped. There are many incredible stories of bravery and most of all, in my opinion, stupidity!!!

    Favorite thing: There were some beautiful gardens on our walk towards the Niagra Falls. They were so lovely - and since most people just seem to be interested in the falls, or the commercial extravaganza that the town offers, it was very quiet and secluded despite being smack in the middle of everything!
