We were there on a cold ...no freezing, sunny winter day! The trees were coated with ice and looked magical. The view of the Falls is better in Canada but the park was truly beautiful. It was breathtakingly gorgeous. The river was spraying us with frozen mist just making it so fairy tale like. Just dress warm and go before... More

Cave of the Winds...where do I start? This is quite the adventure. First, you pick up your poncho and sandals. These are required as it will be slippery and you will get wet :). Then you wait for the elevator to take you down. And then you walk along the path where DOZENS of birds are nestling up on the... More

This park was right across the street from the Comfort Inn... a very easy walk and a gorgeous park. I'd never been here in the wintertime before. The day was sunny, the trees were covered in ice, and people were just enjoying being out in such a beautiful place. The park seems to be well-maintained. (It was snow covered, but... More

What an amazing Park. I have been here twice now, and it is just amazing to walk around and enjoy the view of the falls. The american side of the falls is impressive, but not as nice as the view from the Canadian side. The American side of the falls does have the nice state park that allows you to... More

I presume everyone already knows much about the falls, but a visit in winter is quite special, with the ice coating the rocks, the relative lack of visitors, a number of free access points, and reduced prices. Dress warmly, take either two cameras or sets of batteries because the cold reduces the usable time when the camera is exposed, and... More

Visited over winter and summer and we enjoyed both trips! If you don't mind the cold, visit over the winter and enjoy the park to yourself! Summers aren't bad too because you can wear shorts and enjoy the mist of the falls on a hot day. We stayed at the Sheraton at the Falls which was a good walk away... More

We were there last weekend and the winter scenic was beautiful near the Niagara Falls. It's a little bit messy because of the snow. Overall, it was a great short trip for us to visit during winter time.

We were there in the autumn and the place looked beautiful with all the colors in the trees. Obviously the best part was the falls but the park itself it a nice place to walk and enjoy nature.

This is an absolutely amazing site to see. There are no pictures that can describe the enormous power of nature in motion. It will blow your mind from either the American or the Canadian side. Whether you see it from the boat ride up to it or sneak back behind the falls in the caves. It is sure to amaze... More

Beautiful is all I can say. The water pounds away and makes great music for the ears. I just wish I could of stayed a while longer.
