Get ready to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world! Although getting through ticketing was a bit tricky, once you have your tickets and trolley pass, everything will move along very smoothly. The park is gorgeous and trolley drivers are excellent tour directors. Go to Cave of the Winds first to get your sandals and wear them... More

This was my 3rd visit to the Falls and by far the best. So many places to view the falls and both Maid of Mist and Cave of the Winds were excellent. The movie was fun and the discount Discover Niagara Pass was GREAT! Fireworks on Friday/Sunday evenings at 10p Best viewing seemed to be over at Goat Island.

I've always gone over to the Canadian side to see Niagara Falls. Had an opportunity for a day trip to Niagara Falls, NY, so decided to see what the American side has to offer. Niagara Falls State Park is lovely. A Park ranger was readily available to answer questions. The walk to Luna Island isn't very far and provides a... More

Niagara State park is a great location to relax. The Goats Island, terrapin point, lunar island are a nice place to visit. Take trolly ride to avoid long walking especially if you have young children. We purchased discovery pass which provided free admissions to Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, Aquarium and 1 day unlimited trolly ride and... More

Niagara state park is beautiful and well maintained. There is no admission to the park and you can experience the falls free of charge. There are extras that do cost but they are not necessary. The documentary movie was interesting but way to expensive, comparable to short documentaries you might see in a museum for free. I would not have... More

Definitely get the Discovery Pass with the Trolley access to enjoy a full day at the park. The food is quite expensive but you can walk a couple of blocks out of the park to some great small burger/hotdog/pizza joints. Everything was really clean. Lots of room and nice places to just spread a blanket and relax.

We didn't think to bring our passports (duh!) so didn't make it to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, but the American side was great. Didn't have time to do any of the excursions, unfortunately. We went around 4:30 p.m. and it wasn't too crowded, even on a Saturday on Memorial Day weekend. Must have been dinnertime for most. The... More

went on a 2 day trip, Every Park employee we encountered was so friendly, happy and welcoming. So refreshing to interact with employees that give a little extra and seem to truly enjoy their jobs! The park is beautiful, We had a GREAT time!

well maintained place with manicured green spaces, liked the toy train ride, they have a big souvenier shop for all the memorabilia that one would like to take, and add to that free wifi!!! but the most important thing about is the view that it gives of the falls, we would see from where a flat surface sheet of water,...

i was very surprised that other then the breathtaking falls, tourist attractions in the park, and the river there is not much to do and very few good places to eat. There was a lot of construction and a rainforest cafe popping up so maybe they are working on it. If you like Indian food you will find it every... More
