There’s nothing quite like the roar and rumble of a waterfall to take your breath away as you explore the great outdoors. The immense power of relentlessly cascading water is not a sight you see every day and, if the geology of the surrounding area is just right, such waterfalls can grow to epic proportions. Many are ancient, ferociously eroding the landscape around them over thousands of years – and some of the best of these can be found in the US! Whether you want to base a whole vacation around a particular beauty spot or you want a memorable day trip, here’s our guide to the top waterfalls in the US.
These falls attract visitors from around the world, and no best-of list would be complete without it. It’s easy to see why it’s at the top: consisting of three separate falls that cross the US-Canada border, altogether they make up the highest flow rate in the world. Bring your passport to experience both sides, especially if you want to see Horseshoe Falls which are the most powerful, and are located mainly on the Canadian side. Incredibly, these falls were created in the last ice age along with the Great Lakes. Nowadays they are a great family-friendly visit, with plenty of activities and things to do to keep everyone entertained.
