#1 of 149 in Nature in New York State
Straddling the border between Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls delivers water with the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world. Formed by receding glaciers of the last ice age, the famous falls consist of three sets of waterfalls: the American, Bridal Veil, and Canadian Falls. Their natural beauty draws millions of visitors each year. You can view the falls from decks, vista points, and trails of Niagara Falls State Park. For the full experience, consider buying the park's inclusive package, which includes a Maid of the Mist boat ride and a trip to within feet of the Falls at the Cave of the Winds, as well admission to the park attractions Niagara Adventure Theater, Aquarium of Niagara, and Niagara Gorge Discovery Center. Consider a meal at the restaurant on Goat Island overlooking Horseshoe Falls, which are one-third in the United States and two-thirds in Canada.

    Walking bridge, went from Canada. United States is too much without the tourist destinations like, I was hungry. From the Park on the US side falls of close looks from above. I went to the street of restaurants and shops but stayed for about two hours. If you have time to talk about it is when I go.
