Lovely place to visit in the afternoon. Beautiful views of falls, river and cityscape. We ate lunch at the brewery then wandered down the bridge enjoying the view.

We visited High Falls on a beautiful sunny fall day. It was very impressive and we enjoyed walking across the pedestrian bridge.

We visited High Falls for a photo op of the falls and the city skyline. There is a pedestrian bridge. We stopped to include the Genesee Brewery for a lunch stop with outside seating and view of the falls. Worth an hour of your time.
