Waterfalls

We all love waterfalls whether it be to stare, photograph or play in them. This page can help you plan your trips to see some of the best in the Superior and Great Lakes Basins through some wonderful websites. The founders of World-Waterfalls have assembled an awesome amount of information from around the world and even devised a novel Scenic Rating based on height, scenery, grandeur, volume and width.
