Enjoy the beauty of these massive falls bordering Canada.
Niagara Falls State Park is located in northwestern New York. There are 15 miles of hiking trails to explore, such as the Great Gorge Scenic Overlook, Upper Great Gorge, Devil's Hole Rapids, and Whirlpool Rapids. Great Gorge Scenic Overlook is best for beginners, and Whirlpool Rapids is the most challenging place to hike. Other fun things to do here include a ride on the Niagara Scenic Trolley, the Cave of the Winds tour, Maid of the Mist boat ride, and a meal at the Top of the Falls dine-in restaurant.
Even if you don't have a passport, U.S. citizens can still visit Niagara Falls State Park on the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. It is open all year long but during the summer months, the best days to visit are on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday when there are fewer crowds. There are three big parking lots at the state park and it costs $10 to park your car here. They also permit ride-sharing if you want to be dropped off instead. Please note that all the walking paths are for pedestrians only and are fully ADA accessible. Electric scooters and bikes are not permitted on these paths. If you love waterfalls, come and visit this state park when you have the chance.
