Great view. Nice to visit. Not a ton to do. Can do a river cruise if you want. My kids liked the man feeding the birds in the park more than the falls themselves. Actually got some birds to feed out of their hands!

You need to explore this park in the off season. Walking and biking are the best ways. Three Sister's Islands, Goat Island, everything there is so beautiful and accessible. They are doing some renovating there now.

The US side of the falls is not as commercial as the Canadian side, but the views are great. You can stand at the top of the falls and see Rainbow Bridge and the Niagara River.

My husband and I were in Rochester for our son's chorus concert and decided to go on a whim. The day was very cold and it had rained earlier but by the time we got there it had stopped. The falls are truly a spectacle to see. Nothing much is open in December but don't let that stop you from... More

The State Park has several part, but I like the cave of the winds the best. It takes you directly down to the bottom of the falls and water falls right on you, yes, nearly continuous liquid water, not water vapour, not water droplet that re-condense in the air. It's totally different than the experience in the Maid of the... More

Just back from a 3 - day trip and there is nothing about the experience that I regretted doing. The Niagara falls itself is such a magnificent display of nature's beauty and might. Came there on a freezing day where rain formed these wondrous icicles on trees and plants.. Second day was a trip to the vineyards wherein we had... More

We were driving through New York and decided to go to Niagara Falls on a whim. The Falls themselves are a cool thing to see that I encourage all to visit. However, bring cash if you plan on eating as the shops in the International building only take cash. There is a Hard Rock Café on site that takes credit... More
