Unlike on the Canadian side, which is overgrown with tourist traps and way over-developed, the American side is feeling truly like a park where you could take a nice stroll or ride the trolley for relaxation. You could also view the rapids up close and personal for free, which cannot be done on the Canadian side w/o paying $$$.

But I don't see these improvements paying off in a big way as much more is needed. Stone stairs repaired with concrete were riddled with graffiti carved into every step. You mean to tell me they can't get someone to... More

Disappointed that all the parks required a $10 parking fee; after we paid at one, we told the attendant at the Goat Island park that we had already paid that day and he let us drive in without paying again. There is a lot of construction going on... More
