The Niagara River and Niagara Falls
A spectacular natural wonder, Niagara Falls is located on the Niagara River between the Great Lakes of Erie and Ontario. The Niagara River forms the border between the U.S. and Canada.
Over the years, the United States and Canada have reached many agreements over the management of the Niagara River and Niagara Falls. Bridges crossing the Niagara River serve as reminders of the excellent relations between the two nations.
The Peace Bridge is one example. Officially opened on August 7, 1927, the international bridge links the city of Buffalo, New York, to Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada.
