The Niagara Falls are on the Niagara River in the state of New York. They are very large.

They have two parts: Horseshoe Falls in Canada, and the American Falls in America. The biggest falls are the Horseshoe Falls. They are about 53 m high and 792 m wide. The American Falls are about 21 m high and 323 m wide.

The Horseshoe Falls look like a horseshoe. About 90% of the Niagara water goes over the Horseshoe Falls.

The Niagara Falls are a famous tourist attraction. There are boats, which take you to see the waterfalls. You get a blue raincoat. It protects you from the water. You can keep this raincoat as a souvenir. Many tourists visit the Niagara Falls every year.
