I was born and raised in Niagara Falls, N.Y. When you have lived here you kind of get used to it. It would be like Superman being your father, everyone else is in awe of his power, and abilities, but to you he is just..."Dad".

Niagara Falls is one of the wonders of the world. Few people realize that Niagara Falls is actually two cities; Niagara Falls, New York, USA and Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

The International border at Niagara Falls is one of the friendliest in the world. I used to ride my bike over the Rainbow Bridge to Canada when I was a kid.

Niagara Falls is visually stunning AND dangerous at the same time. The Falls attracts tourists (around 7 million a year), daredevils (those who attempt to go over and survive), and unfortunately those who would like to end their life here.

Look at Niagara Falls, Bold and Beautiful:

First the beauty of Niagara...

And even more beautiful at night

The danger of those who do not take the Falls seriously

And finally, have you ever been BEHIND Niagara Falls. This final view of the Falls comes from the "Journey Behind The Falls". A series of tunnels on the Canadian side with a view that is unparallelled, a view of the Falls from behind the cataracts.
