The Niagara Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America, is on the Niagara River that flows through the international border between Canada and the United States. It lies between the twin cities Niagara Falls (Ontario) and Niagara Falls (New York).
The Niagara Falls has two main sections separated by the Goat Island. On the Canadian side is the Horseshoe Falls, which accounts for about 90% of the water tumbling down. The second section of the falls, the American Falls, is on the American side, which also has the smaller Bridal Veil Falls, which is separated from the two main waterfalls by the Luna Island.
The Niagara Falls is a major tourist attraction because of its beauty. During the summer season, which attracts the maximum number of visitors, these waterfalls entertain and enthrall visitors during the daytime, and also until midnight. During the night floodlights from the Canadian side illuminate both sides of the falls until midnight.
