For many decades the Falls were an attraction for honeymooners and for such stunts as walking over the falls on a tightrope or going over them in a barrel. Increasingly, the appeal of the Falls has become its beauty and uniqueness as well as the incredible attractions that have grown throughout the area. Casinos, museums, parks and trails, hundreds of restaurants, entertainment, wineries, and nightlife thrive in Niagara Falls. Yet, the real draw to Niagara has always been the breathtaking Falls themselves. From the jagged raw power of the American and Bridal Veil Falls to the sheer volume of the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side, tourists come from far and wide to enjoy one of nature’s best shows.
