    Always love coming to the falls. Grew up here a child and boy has it changed. They have really revamped the downtown area. This is a must see for yourself and the family!!

    Knowing fully well Maid of the Mist etc will be closed for the season, my family and I still planned a visit here in December, because the state park itself is open year round. It wasn’t too busy, and we found plenty of parking - $10 per vehicle, and valid for the entire day, even if you move from parking lot to parking lot.
    The gift shop was a tad bit of a let down, but we enjoyed the falls from Prospect Point. The evening illumination and 8 pm fireworks were worth the repeat visit in the evening.

    Our grandchildren enjoyed their first visit to the Falls and the State Park. The day was a warm sunny October afternoon, perfect for walking and viewing the falls.

    Fantastic falls which at the moment have a very good flow of water. In the evenings the falls are lit up with varying colours and at 10 pm there are fireworks

    This is a review of Niagara Falls, American side, "done on the cheap." I saw the Canadian side in 2008. In my opinion, the Canadian side is more accessible and is more impressive.
    You can see the Canadian side from the sidewalk, as well as the American side too. To actually *see* the whole American side from the U.S., you either have to be in Canada, you have to take a boat tour, you have to pay to view it from a viewing platform, or you have to pay and go down in front of it. I've seen it from the Canadian side, so I decided I didn't want to get wet to see it from down below or pay to see it from a viewing platform. Granted, it's probably a fun experience, but I already did that years earlier on the Canadian side.
    So, all I did was park the car, and walk around to all the view spots available for free, both off Prospect Street, as well as on Goat Island. It was a nice experience. Got lots of good photos, and maybe I should have payed to go out onto the viewing platform, and it would have given me a better view, but I don't regret it, since I was there just to see it, but not really experience it. I was just "passing through." If you are there to really "experience" the American Falls, then of course you want to pay to see it from the viewing platform, and pay to go down and see it at the base, and maybe even take the boat tour. But that wasn't *my* goal. I just wanted to see it and go.
    I had a great time doing that. You can still see a lot without doing any of the other things.
