Niagara Falls is widely considered to be the holy grail of waterfalls in the United States, but we have our fair share of gorgeous waterfalls in Texas. McKinney Falls State Park in Austin is home to two breathtaking waterfalls, known as the Upper and Lower Falls. The Lower Falls in particular is sometimes compared to Niagara Falls because of its structure and powerful flow (especially after a good rain).

For more information about the Upper and Lower Falls (and McKinney Falls State Park in general), please visit the Texas Parks & Wildlife website.
