Which waterfalls in the US are the best?

A few months ago, I was in the middle of a post about waterfalls that had captured the public’s imagination.

I was travelling from one place to another, and when I returned, I’d stumbled across some waterfalls which I hadn’t seen before.

I couldn’t wait to get back to the water, and soon I had a list of some 100 waterfalls to try. 

It wasn’t until a few weeks later, however, that I decided to write down my list of the 100 waterfall spots in the United States. 

What follows is my list, and hopefully it helps you to find some water you might not have had before. 


Big Bend National Park, Texas  This is one of the few waterfalls not in the Big Bend, a massive area of the park where Big Bend Falls are located.

It has some of the best waterfalls you can find in the world.

The waterfalls are so beautiful that I’d recommend anyone to try them.

You can also find them in the park.

It’s one of only two places in the country where you can go for a swim in the Grand Canyon, the other being the famous Pecos River.
