Top 10 Amazing Waterfalls in America

America is one of the most geographically diverse landmasses on earth. With everything from arid deserts to sticky swamps, from skier filled mountains to white sandy beaches, if you are searching for the wonders of the natural world, America is a fine a place as any to start. One of the most fascinating and beautiful features of the landscape is the waterfall, and with so many to see, whittling down this list to just ten has been incredibly difficult, with each and every one possessing something unique and wondrous. Rather than rank in any particular order, what follows is a summation of some of the greatest landmarks available to visitors across America.

1. Niagara Falls

The most obvious inclusion on the list and essentially here by default. That is not to say, however, that the waterfall is anything less than awesome in the real sense of the word. When it comes to sheer scale and power, there is hardly anything in the world to match it. A worldwide wonder.(image by ejbjj).

2. Yosemite Falls

Similarly to the falls at Niagara, this is a world famous inclusion. For the scale and power of Niagara, Yosemite possesses height and a sense of cascading beauty. The water falls some 2425 feet as it plummets through the national park and has consistently proven to be one of the most popular waterfalls from the north to Central America.

3. Bridalveil Fall

Bridalveil sits in a position which frames Yosemite Valley, similarly placed to the waterfall listed above. What is slightly different about this option, however, is the scenery. Working in perfect conjuction with the landscape, the waterfall adds a luxurious look to what is already a gorgeous scene and is always worth a visit.

4. Multnomah Falls

Famed for its iconic nature, the hights of the Multnomah Falls have attracted a visit from an incredible number of tourists throughout the years. The arched concrete bridge above the Falls offers the perfect viewing platform for anyone wanting to get to the heart of a waterfall.

5. Lower Falls (of the Yellowstone river)

Also benefitting from a scenic location is this, one of America’s favourite waterfalls. Whatever the costs, visitors flock towards this location at the head of the Grand Canyon.

6. Palouse Falls

Sat in the middle of an otherwise unassuming Washington state, this Waterfall is not nearly as regularly visited or well regarded as many on this list, but the natural state of the site lends itself to experiencing one of the top waterfalls on the continent.

7. Alamere Falls

Markedly different in that the final location of these falls leads you out onto a beach, the Alamere Falls are unique among the greatest offerings across America and should be noted for that.

8. Cumberland Falls

Sometimes referred to as the Niagara of the South, this wide and power waterfall is a benefactor of the leafy and warming surroundings, especially in the fall.

9. Grand Falls (of the Little Colorado River)

Again with a unique feature, this seasonal set of falls has the distinction of coming in an alternative colour. Picking up mud and dirt from the river, the water it throws out has a rich brown colour, leading to the nickname of Chocolate Falls.(image by Adam Hagerman).

10. Havasu Falls

The last place on this list is by no means the least. This year round waterfall is set in one of the most scenic locations, and the surrounding waters and caves and geology all add up to offering a fine attraction for tourists.

When it comes to the finest Waterfalls in the world, America has plenty to offer. With so many not included on this list, what is included represents a diverse spectrum of power, beauty and scenery. With options ranging from the world famous to the relatively unknown, finding the time to visit everyone is almost essential.
