I voted that I have seen the falls from the Canadian side but I have also seen them from the American side. I remember them as a child when traveling with my parents. Loved viewing your photos!

Hi Peggy W,

Thanks for voting. I didn't think of that answer, and glad to hear that you visited Niagara Falls. I had heard there was more to see and do on the Canadian side, so I opted for that side. Glad you enjoyed the photos!

Great pictures that show the glory of Niagara Falls that will encourage anyone to visit. I only live about 15 minutes from the Falls, so I consider it home. The next time you visit take a stroll down into the Gorge on either the American or Canadian side.

Oh wow, Outbound Dan, that must be wonderful, living so close to Niagara Falls. I don't know too much about the gorge, but I just looked it up and read about it. Maybe I saw it, thanks for the info and I appreciate you stopping by. :-)

I love Niagara Falls and have visited there since the late 60s. You have some amazing pictures here. It has been a few years since my last visit so I am always interested to see new stuff. I don't remember the upside down house. I wonder how they did that? Voted up.

Thanks for your comments, Diana Lee. It was my first visit, so I was pretty amazing at the Falls. I was also surprised to see how many attractions and things to do near and around Niagara Falls. That upside house was something we noticed when walking around the see the sights and it kind of caught us by surprise. It was pretty cool, among many other things in the area.

I have been to Niagara Falls on both sides a couple of times, and the last time was in early March. There was a lot of ice and it was just as beautiful. Your hub is terrificc. You gave us a lot of pertinent information and the pictures are gorgeous.

Your hub is beautiful. Loved the details and the interesting bits of information like the gardens and the upside down house and the fact that there are really three falls in Niagara--didn't know that. Pictures were wonderful with great angles of the falls. Well done, thumbs up! Thanks

These are beautiful photos! I visited on the Canadian side during my second year of marriage. Standing next to the falls is a powerful, awesome feeling. The power of the water is astonishing. It's simply a breathtaking experience to see them in real life. You've shared such interesting facts as well. Annie Taylor must have been quite a woman to go over the falls in a barrel. I can't say it's something I would want to do! I love also the pics of the gardens and Niagara by the Lake. Wonderful hub.

Hi rebekahELLE (rebe for short?), Thank you for taking the time to review my hub, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the pictures. I agree, that when you are standing right next to the water at the Falls it is an exciting, exhilarating feeling! It was a great trip and I would recommend it, if anyone has not been there to definitely see it. :-)
