I had a limited time to visit the Park. I got great pics of the falls from both Prospect Point and the observation tower. If you plan a day trip, there are many attractions at the Park you can take advantage of; as well as spend money on souvenirs and food. Fairly easy to get around in the Park with... More

Hadn't spent any time on the American side of the Falls in probably 20 years and was delighted to happen upon the oldest state park in the USA! Beautifully laid out trails with access to close views of all the Falls. Terrific for those who enjoy walking and hiking!

Had an amazing day out here, loved it. Only thing is bring money, you can buy a pass for all the major attractions at $45 per person which also gets you a wristband for the trolley. You will need to do at least 3 of the activities and use the trolley for it to make sense. Then add $10 parking... More

First time at Niagra Falls. It was amazing! If you have not been there it is something everyone needs to see. The park is very nice. Beautiful flowers and nice benches to sit and take in the view. While we were there my husband left his cell phone on the bench in the case was his ID and credit cards.... More

Lets face it, this is probably one of the rare instances where Canada outshine USA! The Park, is nice for a picnic, its nice for somewhere to relax and walk across two bridges and see the gushing rivers. They are developing the area with improved seats and railings and new constructions. You get to see a bit of both falls,... More

We stopped at Niagra Falls for an hour on the way out to OH from NH. My family had never been there, and when we saw the sign we decided to make the detour. I don't know why I didn't know how busy and how urban of a place it was. It was crazy! It was hard to find parking... More

The state park has some of the best spots to view and photograph the falls on either side of the river. I like Prospect Point and the Observation Tower on the mainland and Luna Island and Terrapin Point on Goat Island. The Maid of the Mist tour-- virtually the same as the Hornblower tours run from the Canadian side-- is... More

We visited on a beautiful September morning. You get absolutely spectacular views of the Falls from many different perspectives. I recommend going out on the observation deck - it only costs $1.25 and gives you spectacular views of both the American and Canadian (Horseshoe Falls) and you can catch the Maid of the Mist boat ride from here. I highly... More
