A huge expanse of natural beauty, this oldest state park in the U.S. offers biking, fishing and cross-country skiing, and contains plenty of hiking and walking trails, including the Niagara Gorge Trail System, which affords great views of both the falls and the gorge.

The park offers you a good view of water flowing and eventually falling. Just stand there and see the American falls untill you get tired. Usually crowded. You can enjoy fireworks on weekends. A good place to sit and relax.

It's about a 30 minute drive from the airport. Mostly interstate. Rental car would be the best method. You will need a passport if you intend to go to the Canadian side of the Falls.
