Here are five fun facts about the falls and a few photos for your Friday:
Niagara Falls State Park, established in 1885, is the oldest state park in the United States.
The park's landscape architect, Frederick Olmsted, also designed Central Park in New York City.
3,160 tons of water flow over the falls every second. (Not minute. Second. Wow.)
Four of the five great lakes (Huron, Superior, Erie, and Michigan) drain into the Niagara River.
In 1885, a horse-drawn carriage ride around the falls cost $1.00 per hour.
