Any trip to Niagara Falls should include a visit to Niagara Falls State Park. We were lucky enough to visit during an unseasonably warm weekend in February. The views from the raised platform were amazing. Got lots of great shots of the falls that you just can't get from seeing them from the Canadian side. Also the observation area between... More

We were in Niagara in November at an unseasonably warm time with our 12 year old son and 14 year old daughter. We were still bundled up, but 47 degrees was definitely bearable. There were very few people at the park, which was great. We paid the small fee to take the trolley around the park. Highly recommend that so... More

alone or in company, state park of Niagara offers you serenity amidst chaos produced from tons of gushing down water.

This is the must beautiful park I have ever seen, the water going over the falls is breath taking. We have been here several times, when my family from Texas visit, this the first place they want to go.

Visited with family and after we were finished with our trip to Niagara Falls, we just roamed in this park and enjoyed every minute spent here. Few women were doing deep meditation, which attracted many passersby. Sight of river flowing towards the falls is just brilliant!

Niagara Falls, NY is working hard to get back on track. We spend time there every summer exploring along the river and hiking around Goat Island. An area rich in history and the birthplace of the Electrical Age, I never miss it!

This is the spot to get right next to the falls. If you can go in the evening too go when it gets dark they have the lights on the falls and that looks beautiful too. Wear shoes you can walk in and that has some traction if your there in the winter. They do salt but with the cold... More

Bought passes at the visitors center and saved a bundle for all the attractions. We had a great time riding the Maid of the Mist (and you will definitely get wet). Cave of the Winds is also a must and you will get we here also! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here at the park.

First and foremost bring your camera and comfortable shoes. Great vistas of the Falls and the Niagara River are found everywhere. Don't forget the Three Sister Islands just above the Falls. Be Careful of the Point of No Return!
