Self drive from Buffalo Airport

Hi, I'm planning to take a flight from Huntsville to Buffalo on 29/6(fri, noon), then take hire a car to drive to Niagara falls. I can only be at the American side. All I'm interested is the scenery, fireworks and illumination. before returning to the airport for an early morning flight to NYC.

I wanted to find out is there a 1 day local tour from Buffola that can fulfill my needs without self driving as I heard getting a carpark is not easy in Niagara Falls and it charge per hours.

You can park on Goat Island in some spots (Three Sisters Islands) for free--just not all day. But the bigger parking lot on Goat Island, near Terrapin Point, Cave of the Winds, and a short tram ride to the lookout and elevator down to the boat, Maid of the Mist, is only $10 per day. Try to get there as early as you can to avoid long lines at Cave of the Winds ($11 each to walk down in front of the falls on the American side). Goat Island is off the Robert Moses Parkway and very easy to get to after heading north on the 290. Google directions!

There are a few tour options (visitbuffaloniagara.com/things-to-do/…), but for you, the best and easiest thing to do is to rent the car. Like the poster above me indicated, you should be able to find parking quite easily for $10 or so and you should be able to see the lighting, fireworks and stuff quite readily.
