Canada 16: The Wonder of Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is something one has to experience to truly believe its wonder. This program not only captures the beauty, power and mystery of the Falls, but also explores many attractions in this beautiful region. One of the most popular destinations in the world, Niagara Falls has two major sections separated by Goat Island: Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side, and the American Falls on the U.S. side; also on the American side are the smaller Bridal Veil Falls. Incredibly, over 2.5 billion gallons of water flows every hour over the falls heading north to Lake Ontario; it is the third greatest waterfalls in the world in terms of volume of water. We learn the Maid of the Mist boat cruise is the oldest attraction at the Falls; it has carried passengers beneath the Falls since 1846; also we discover a 63-year-old teacher, Annie Edson Taylor, was the first person to successfully plunge over the Falls in a barrel. Other than plane or helicopter, the Skylon Tower offers the highest overhead view of the Falls. Just a 10-minute drive north of the Falls is the Niagara Parks' Botanical Gardens, a horticultural center with nearly 100 acres and over 2300 plant types; it too is home to the world's largest Butterfly Conservatory. Next stop is Marineland, Ontario's largest theme park attraction, which offers live aquarium shows with killer whales, beluga whales and seals. Last stop is to wine country and the Vineland Estates Winery, called the area's "most picturesque winery." 03/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
