If you’re travelling to the United States and want to see the cascading beauties, head right this way. Not only are these United States brimming with waterfalls but promise you all sorts of variations, from majestic and huge down to skinny and short. You’re heading in the right direction, right this way!

1. Niagara Falls

This waterfall is definitely the most popular and a major tourist destination not only in the states but also in Canada as this is located on the border of the two. Fun fact it’s actually made up of three waterfalls, American falls, Horseshoe and Bridal Veil falls. If you want to get up close and wet then the tour of the Maid of the Mist is a must but if not then head over to the Canadian side for a better view.

2. Havasu Falls, Arizona

Time to head up to the Grand Canyon for this one. True it is a little difficult to reach as it’s located in the remote part of the canyon. From approximately 90 feet up, lush blue green waters cascade into the Havasu creek but again, this sight is only attainable if you take a horseback ride or hike from the Hualapai Hilltop. There’s a campground in the canyon for campers and a lodge nearby for those who want to rest nearby.

3. Palouse Falls, Washington

Welcome to DC in all its glory. The Palouse river flows south, till it drops into a canyon thus creating the famous Palouse falls. Easily located at the Palouse State Park, with campgrounds, trails, picnic tables and wheel chair accessible paths, to enjoy the beauty therein. A little insider tip would be to visit the falls at sunset so that you can witness the light and shadow display mirrored on the walls of the canyon.
