I’ve visited many times. The falls used to be fantastic: a natural beauty protected, at least nearby, from ugly development. Since I last visited, some idiot has allowed the construction of a tall casino on the American side, with a very bright, always changing electric...More

You can walk up to the falls and get amazing pictures and incredible view of the US side. It was just breathtaking.

The state park is great the rest of the city could us a face lift. There is a terribly ugly casino that looms over the whole area

Enjoyed walking across the bridge to take a look at the Niagara Falls from USA side. Several options to get closer and take photos. Liked it but... more impressive from Canadian side.

most of the hotels are pretty cheap this time of year. The Howard Johnson and quality suites are both nice. also if you use the groupon app there is a good deal to stay at the Sheraton and you get a bunch of coupons!
