Let’s start by asking an odd question. What is Niagara Falls? Sounds funny! But hang on! Secondly, what are the main attractions at Niagara Falls, Canada?
The first question’s answer is not just, it’s waterfalls. 12,000 years ago water plunged over the edge of the Niagara Escarpment (steep-slope).
This is a slope that runs east/west from New York through Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Since the escarpment is most famous as the cliff over which the Niagara River drops off at Niagara Falls, it was named the Niagara Escarpment.
There is something more you should know. The formation of Niagara Falls was a slow process and still continues to date.
That was just a brush-up of history.
We have got Niagara Falls on both the Canadian side and the American side. But you are going to know only the Niagara Falls attractions found in Canada.
