The Jr. Ranger program is a joke!!! Other state programs require a small (usually one activity per year old) number of basic, age appropriate and informative activities to complete the jr. ranger program. This place required like THIRTY FIVE! And they were complex.. some requiring algebra..for a six year old!!! I graduated from college with a 4.0, and sat there... More

Took some international friends to the Niagara Falls State Park in New York. How amazing! Everyone was so friendly and the park was clean! The overlook was awesome. The view of both the American and horseshoe falls was stunning. I was surprised that there wasn't really much to do on the US side, but we still had a great time.

Great time to go if you can stand the cold. The falls was not crowded with people which made the experience quite enjoyable. I strongly recommend going during this time of the year.

Our first night, we walked down the street a block and a half from the hotel to the park, and followed the sidewalk to the very edge of the falls. Colored lights illuminated the falls and the volume of water going over the edge was enormous. I loved the excitement of the experience and recommend it highly.

Some people say that the Canadian side is the better view. I feel that both sides have unique views to offer. I loved seeing the falls as close as I could get and the flow of the water and the sounds of the roar. It is also winter so hearing the ice crackle on the trees that surround the falls... More

The winterscape is beautiful including the ice covered trees and railings near the Horseshoe Falls on Goat Island. You can't get very close to the water because of the icy conditions, but this is a scene that usually only the locals see.

The American side of the falls was better for experiencing the falls. The Canadian side was better for viewing them. I enjoyed the more natural feel on the American side, and we saw heaps of squirrels and other wildlife.

This is a great place to visit with family. The view is wonderful, and the experience is great. You can take a guided tour, or you can spend several hours on your own, just walking around the entire park, taking it all in. It's really breathtaking. I go at least twice a year or more. Get's really cold in the... More

... Neat to see the different views from both the Canadian and American sides. Currently they are renovating - can't wait to see the outcome of this project! Free to visit and wander around. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather!
