Excellent experience. Falls are great. Don't forget the night lights. Plenty of pictures will be taken and hiking around the falls is breath taking.

Great, Well-Maintained Park
Oct 2021 • Couples
We were in town for a long weekend and spent part of each day in the park. It is full of excellent views and easy-to-walk paved paths. The plant beds are beautiful, and although we did not see any workers on duty, the grounds were trash-free. The large, well-placed maps made it easy to make on the spot decisions about which way to go next.

October was beautiful with little traffic!

Beautiful area and very clean. We arrived around 9:00 am and found a great parking spot. We walked the American Falls area and then walked over to the Horseshoe Falls area. It was a nice walk with plenty of vantage points to view the falls.
We didn’t get to go over to Canada because of COVID but we did see the falls at night.
The parking lots were open after 5:00 so it was nice to go back in and find easy parking to watch the falls light show.

We’ve been to the Canada side many times … because of travel restrictions, went to US side for first time and glad we did! This park is really enjoyable. Fun things to do and interesting things to see.

Short Walk To The Falls
Oct 2021
We first visited Niagara Falls on the Canadian side 51 years ago on our honeymoon. This time we decided it was too much trouble to go to Canada so we visited the American side of the falls. It's beautiful, but Canada has the best view. It was just a short walk to the State Park from our hotel. Stop at the Visitor Center to pick up some information, then continue on to the Falls. Tickets can be purchased on the way to the Falls for the Maid of the Mist boat tour and the viewing deck. Stroll along the falls to Goat Island and other places clearly marked on the information boards. It's a beautiful place for a stroll. We stayed until after dark to see the Falls lit up. It wasn't very impressive. Just one set of lights on the Canadian side focused on the falls. The Park is clean and well-manicured. It's a beautiful place to spend a few days.

Go back multiple times at different times of the day
Sep 2021
Thirty years ago, I did the Canada side. This time I did the NY side and it's amazing. Completely different angles and views but breathtaking, especially walking along the river before it gets to the American Falls. Our group of three couples explored the park on three different days at different times of day, and each one was like a new experience. Be sure to go both day and night. Take the time to go to Goat Island and to the tower above the Maid of the Mist dock. It's amazing to see the falls from so many different parts of the park. Kudos to the architects and engineers who designed this truly accessible and diverse park experience.

Getting the falls from all angles.
Sep 2021
We tried to capture everything the park had to offer without overextending ourselves. We did the Maid of the Mist boat tour--WOW! Only about $20 a pop. Checked out the falls from the Observation Tower (free)--VERY COOL! Drove to Goat Island, parked, and walked out to Terrapin Point to see the falls from the top. Amazing! We could have sat there all day looking at the falls. This was a good mix of things to visit without much duplication and without getting into the touristy stuff.
