Take the combined ticket, ok the aquarium is a bit cheesy but the rest is well worth the money. See in both night and day even if it means return trip from hotel, worth the effort.

They are doing some restoration and upgrades to this park, but what is here is definitely worth spending time in. Besides the beautiful vies of the American falls, we also meandered along the river and crossed over to Goat Island and then 3 sisters. Beautiful views of the Horseshoe falls and the Canadian side. It's all free except the parking.

This Park is also referred to as Goat Island. There are a number of views but none of the complete falls. The Horseshoe falls offers great views of the Canadian side skyline. During the summer, fireworks are set off on the Canada side on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night at 10:00pm. The best viewing is from the rail at the... More

I enjoyed the New York side more than the Canadian side. It is very natural and I like the fact that you can take the trolley for $2. It rides throughout the park if you need a break from walking.

Why do people say bad things about New York? They were so nice at Niagara Falls State Park and helpful with directions. You get to see both the American and Canadian Falls without a passport. Plus there are several other attractions very nearby. Don't forget to ask about a Discovery Pass, it's a great deal to the attractions.

We were very impressed by the park and had a great experience. There was a lot of construction going on and can't wait to see it when it is done. I am not sure why the NY side gets such a bad rap, but this was clean, nice and safe. I hope to visit again!

We stopped for a break by accident heading to Buffalo. It had excellent river views, and tram views. We took many pictures, and they had a tour guide at the visitors center too.

We went to the U.S. side of Niagra Falls and parked at the State Park ($10 USD). You can walk along the top of the falls to see the rapids. There is a visitors center which is small, but informational. You can walk to the edge of the top of the falls and see quite a bit of the falls.... More

While on vacation in Niagara Falls we decide to stop at Niagara Falls State Park in NY on our way home to NJ. This was our second visit to this park but first for our friends traveling with us. We just love this park! It is clean and gives you a close up view of the Falls from the American... More
