Waterfalls, Whats areas and types interest You!

I am curious! We all view our destinations┬ábased on our personal preferences. For all you “Waterfall” folks, what areas or types of waterfall locations do you choose to see.

Do you like long hikes to get to a waterfall?
Do you prefer a roadside stop here and there along a route to your end destination?

Do you prefer hikes less then 1 mile to see a waterfall?

Would you only visit tourist areas of attractions like Niagara Falls, Watkins Glen State Park or Letchworth State Park?

Would you camp in the woods over night, just to see waterfalls?

If you were to choose a waterfall destination where would it be?

I would like to see your comments!

My point of view
I love waterfalls, of course. I do not like lots of people, therefore I would choose lesser known places to travel to. As well as the adventure it brings. Niagara Falls is a totally awesome place, yet I found every time I went it was too overwhelming with all the people. I love following the “Whitewater rafting/kayaking” folks. I love watching as they plummet over the falls! Sure there on plenty of on lookers, cheering on their friend or family or spouses. Everyone is there with the same common interest. That and I get to learn and find more waterfalls in which is classified as rapids! I have had more adventures and stories to tell for years later! Cool, I think so.
