Having spent a couple of days on the Canadian side, we were interested in viewing Niagara Falls from the American side, so we planned an evening at the Niagara Falls State Park. There is a parking fee to get into the state park, and there are individual fees for other activities such as Maid of the Mist or the Cave... More

The park is ok. The prices for park attractions are accessible BUT the only bad thing I noticed is the food that restaurant sell around... it's really expensive including the food court places. I'll recommend you to bring your own food or drive for 10 min to the central part of the city(Niagara Falls Blvd.) there are many restaurants there... More

This is where the falls are located, along with maid of the mist, cave of the winds, the aquarium, discovery center, observation deck, and much, much more. The information center employees were very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. prices for food and drink inside the park are a bit high, try to buy before entering the park. Buy a discovery pass...

Even though the Canadian side has way more to offer you must come across to the U.S. and come here and right next door to Goat island. its a nice long walk or pay for parking $15. Pay up and walk the hurricane deck next to falls from goat island.

The New York side was more touristy than the Canada side. The area seemed runned down. It was just okay and not as up kept as the Canada side. Of course, the views are awesome. There are a lot of activities on the New York side and places to hike. The cliffs sit up higher than the Canada edge. But... More

In my opinion, the view from the side of Canada is more beautiful. Frankly I have not tried it, but when I look at the Canadian location is strategic to enjoy the view of the waterfall and garden. Next time we will go back again but from the side of Canada.

Beautiful and clean park.They do have concession stands so you can buy snacks,drinks.There is also a restaurant.If you want a good overview of park,take trolley ride.Goes over rapids and stops by main attractions(maid of mist,cave of winds,etc)Plenty parking and if you don't get in park try across street...park was $10 and $20 for across street.

I really love this place. It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have seen. I spent one whole day at this place. If you can get Canada visa, I would suggest to go towards the Canada side of Niagara Falls. I would love to go to this place once again.
