The majority of excursions are associated with falls. Here you can visit exhibitions of photographs devoted to falls, attend entertaining lectures and performances for children. Approximately 500 kilometers of the falls are located on the "American" side of the city, but the biggest part of the falls are on the "Canadian" side. It’s hard to see the greatness of the falls from the American side due to rocks that simply overhang the falls, but the Canadian side of a waterfall features an unforgettable glorious look.
Around this complex are built numerous observation platforms, many of which literally hanging over the falls. The biggest observation area is named "The Table Rock". We should note that visitors of the city can move freely from the American side to the Canadian one using a Rainbow Bridge and, thus, see this wonder of nature from all sides. Besides traditional walks in the nature park, there is an opportunity to make a trip on a balloon or a helicopter and see the region from a bird's flight. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
