Breath taking and well worth the drive. We had a great time even though it was off season and some attractions were closed. The crowds weren't bad at all which made it even more enjoyable. We didn't go on the Canadian side, but we will next time just to see the falls from the other side.

This recently renovated park is first class. Well lit for evening strolls, bike and walking paths, and pet friendly. Can't find a more beautiful backdrop. The US side view of the falls is the best!

Parking can be an issue before you ever get into the park. This side of the falls gives you a scenic view of the rivers that feed the falls and the views of the Canadian skyline and the river that exits the falls. The grounds are well kept with cement walkways leading to great vantage pts. to either look at... More

We enjoyed walking in Niagara Falls state park. It's got a beautiful view of the Canadian sky line and a beautiful view of the river that is a buffer between the two countries.

It was beautiful view. I visited in first week of November, weather was slightly cold. Maid of the mist was closed. It was very less crowded due to off season. Observation deck was open and it was made free. There was amazing view from observation deck. It was fall season, and fall view was also very good. Walk to Luna... More

we visited the falls for the first time for our very first wedding anniversary last week 11/17/16. We had a wonderful trip but we were disappointed. The Park itself was a little run down. we expected tours, restaurants, lots of life but we saw none of that. We were out of season but it was still pretty deserted. It looked... More

My wife and I visited Niagara Falls for four nights with another couple in the second week of November. Originally, our plan was to visit just the Canadian side as we did one time many years ago. For some reason, we thought the American side of the Falls was not worth visiting. At the last minute we decided to spend... More
