Toronto, Ontario

My tourist attraction: Niagara Falls

Physical Region

The climate of the region is southern location meaning the weather will be warmer. The cold air is trapped in a jet stream during the winter. Also, since its near water the summers are cooler and the winters are warmer. There can also be 100cm of rain because of how humid summers can be.

The type of rock found in the St Lawrence lowlands is mainly sedimentary rock. There is rich fertile land perfect for agriculture. It has the second largest farming land in all of Canada. Some of the crops grown in St Lawrence lowlands are tobacco, peaches, cherries, grapes , apples, hay, vegetables, such as carrots, corn, onions, beets, peas and beans.


The landscape is surrounded by few hills. At one point the area was covered in pine forest, birch, hemlock, and maple trees. They cleared the area to use it for farmland. This is why the St Lawrence lowlands has the second largest farm land.

Everyday, people visit the Niagara falls. It is one of the largest attractions in all of Canada. A huge reason why it is a huge a attraction is because people can view the water fall free of charge. This attraction matches the landform because the Niagara falls because the St. Lawrence lowlands includes the great lakes. Even people from the United States come across the border to view the Niagara falls even though the USA has their own water fall that isn't as attractive.


Natural Disasters

One natural disaster affected the Great Lakes St. Lawrence lowlands so far. A 5.4 magnitude earthquake affected the St. Lawrence lowlands. When the tectonic plates shift an earthquake can occur. It takes quite a while but tension builds up between plates or energy. Then an earthquake will happen when the plates divide.
