Mini Vacay: 53 Seconds at Niagara Falls

Here’s your mini vacation: 53 seconds at Niagara Falls, looking on from the U.S. side of the falls. This 360-degree video gives you a tour of the American Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls. We sweep briefly over Canada, with its Vegas-style manmade showmanship of lights, architecture and restaurants. Then back to the states for one last look.

Niagara Falls drains from two of the Great Lakes: Lake Eerie and Lake Ontario. Combined, these falls make up the highest flow rate of any falls in the world, with a vertical drop of 165 feet. It’s quite a wonder to see from up above, and I hear, even more impressive from beneath the falls on one of the boats, where you will experience the spray of the falls up close.
