  • Address: Bridal Veil Falls, Niagara Falls, NY, USA
One common misconception about Niagara Falls is that it is one large waterfall. The truth is, it is made up of three waterfalls: Bridal Veil Falls on the U.S. side, Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side, and American Falls on the U.S. side. Bridal Veil Falls is named for its appearance, as its gushing cascades appear similar to a bride’s white veil. During peak season from June through August, the falls experience the highest volume of water at 150,000 gallons (567,811 liters) per second.

Bridal Veil Falls, situated between Luna Island and Goat Island, features an impressive vertical fall of 78 feet (24 meters) and a crest that’s 56 feet (17 meters) wide, although it is the smallest of the three falls. This one does get a lot of exposure, however, as visitors can get very close to it via a number of accessible attractions including the Maid of the Mist, which takes passengers right past Bridal Veil Falls for a unique view of its beauty. Cave of the Winds is also popular and includes an elevator descent 175 feet (53 meters) into Niagara Gorge before following the Niagara River to the windy Hurricane Deck. Torrents of water from Bridal Veil Falls drench travelers on the deck, while winds gust at up to 68 mph (109 kph), providing a great way to truly experience Niagara Falls.

Spectacular views of Bridal Veil Falls are also seen from the viewing platforms on Goat and Luna islands, the Skylon Tower Observation Deck and at Queen Victoria Park.

Practical Info

Bridal Veil Falls is best visited in the summer when Niagara Falls is at its strongest and all the attractions are open (many close down in the winter). That being said, Niagara Falls itself doesn’t close down in the winter, and you can score much cheaper hotels during this time. Just make sure to bundle up.
