This is a beautiful natural wonder and well worth the visit. We walked all over the park and saw the Falls. It was awe-inspiring.

I had always thought one needed to go to the Canadian side to really get the best view of the Falls. Completely not true! The NY side has everything, is cheaper, way less commercial, and it's a lovely park as well. Buy the Discovery Pass if you want to do the usual attractions like Maid of the Mist, Cave of... More

We walked all over the park, from the maid of the mist, to the caves of the wind, to top of the falls restaurant to goat island and ended up at the aquarium and discovery center. First two were fabulous, delicious fish and chips. Aquarium was small and unimpressive, except for the seal show.

To really see the majestic falls you will either need to go Canada or ride Maid of the Midst. As you will be able to see the front of it. Otherwise you will be on its side, not really worthy of its splendor. Also, don't go too early in the day, its too hot and sunny, making it very tiresome.... More

Whenever I travel I always check Trip Advisor, this time I didn't but I wished I had! There is so much to do here! We planned to spend the afternoon, we easily could have spent a whole day just on the American side. We did the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds. Had I planned better my... More

Spectacular! Amazing! You must see for yourself. Easy parking. Lots of places to sit & enjoy the view. You are right at the falls whether you're at the top of the falls, beside the gigantic, roaring falls or in the mist of the falls. It's as close as you can possibly get to the falls.

For years I had heard so many wonderful things about the falls. It was on my bucket list. The whole park is beautiful. The Maid of the Mist is so worth the price. The falls are awesome. The only downside was the cost of drinks and food. Way too expensive. The park itself is free. Best deal of all. Go... More

They are improving the park. The Observation Tower is a perfect location to see the falls at night. Clean bathrooms - get there early for parking - limited number of parking spots. Teh trolley is a great way to see the park.

We purchased the Discovery Day pass which covers all of the park attractions and we were glad we did. Much cheaper than paying individually! We unfortunately did not have time to see the aquarium but did not arrive until noon. I would suggest arriving at the park around opening time to insure maximum use of your Discovery pass. We parked... More
