Niagara Falls is a set of three waterfalls located on the Niagara River on the border between Ontario, Canada and New York State.  The three falls are the Horseshoe Falls (Canadian), the American Falls and the small Bridal Veil Falls.  6 million cubic feet of water fall over the falls every minute.  It is the most powerful waterfall in all of North America.

Rogers Centre (SkyDome)

Filed under: Canada, Stadiums

Rogers Centre, formerly known as SkyDome, is a multi-purpose stadium in Toronto, Ontario, situated next to the CN Tower near the shores of Lake Ontario. It is home to the American League’s Toronto Blue Jays and the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts. While it is primarily a sports venue, Rogers Centre also hosts other large-scale events such as conventions, trade fairs, and concerts.

Rogers Centre is noted for being the first stadium to have a fully-retractable motorized roof, as well as a 348-room hotel attached to it, with 70 rooms overlooking the field. It is also the most recent North American major-league stadium built to accommodate both football and baseball, although some of the newer baseball parks have been known to host the occasional college football game.
