After visiting Niagara Falls on Canada side, we drove over to the American side. It was a surprise that the sights are totally different. We walked through the state park with its greenery and saw the water rapids before ending at the Falls. Very beautiful indeed and the sounds of the waters were soothing. Some renovation were going on at... More

We just visited in July after not going to the falls in 6 years. I love the area and think it is very beautiful! My favorite part is down along the falls. It is clean and appears to be very safe. We frequently saw security and groundskeepers making rounds. I do think the park looked in need of a little... More

Park is going through a major remodel,so some roads are closed. The people working in park are helpful. Was disappointed with the flowers or lack of in the park. While it's not the parks fault I'm disappointed with the amount of people who show disrespect to the park by not staying on paths, climbing on rocks,jumping over fences to attain... More

The U.S. side of the falls has the reputation of not being as good as the Canadian side. I would say that each side has it's strong points. You can SEE the falls better from the Canadian side, but you can get much closer to the falls at the US side. The park itself is free if you park somewhere... More

This park is a great place to watch the evening light show as colours change on the falls, but it is even better if you can make it on a Friday or Sunday evening when there are fireworks as well, entry is free.

The amazing Niagara Falls are surrounded by this wonderful park on the US side. It is a beautiful green space, as well as the site of big attractions such as Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds. It is worth taking the time to explore the whole park. Other features include an interactive Visitor Center with interpretive displays... More

We definitely enjoyed our time at the park. We skipped the trolley do we could walk the grounds. There is lots to see, trails to explore, and views in every direction. We spent two days at the park as well as enjoying the additional activities available.

We had a great short family vacation to the park. The discovery pass is a must. You'll want to do everything anyway, and it will save you some money. The kids loved the Maid of the Mist and the Cave of the Winds. Go early at opening and try to miss some of the crowds for those attractions like we... More
