NEW YORK

America was the last continent I’ve visited. If I only have a chance to visit the United States , there are three places that I should visit . Niagara Falls , the Grand Canyon , and New York City .  I was lucky enough to see  all in my first visit . And I was also fortunate to have the opportunity more than once to visit this great country .

NIAGARA FALLS

Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada(province of Ontario) and the United States (state of New York). Niagara falls consist three waterfalls : Canadian Side : horseshoe falls and American Side : American Falls & Bridal Veil Falls.

Located on the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario, the combined falls form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, with a vertical drop of more than 165feet (50m). The falls are located 27km north-northwest of Buffalo, New York and 121 km south-southeast of Toronto, between the twin cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York.  (wikipedia)

My friend asked which one is better , Niagara Falls or Victoria Falls . I answered , each one has its own uniqueness to ignore quantitative comparisons . Victoria Falls is a natural and beautiful as it is surrounded by forest , Niagara Falls is unique because it is surrounded by modern buildings !
