New for 2021! The NY State department of parks and recreation has completed renovations along the Niagara Gorge from the Falls to Whirlpool State Park. Portions of an old highway named “Robert Moses Parkway” have been removed and replaced with excellent paved pathways and lots of green space! You can walk or ride your bike and enjoy beautiful scenic views of the Niagara Gorge and River. There are several points along the trail where you can walk down to the Niagara River’s edge. Please come and enjoy this scenic walk during your visit. We will be posting additional information soon.
In Niagara Falls New York, Prospect Point Park & Goat Island are the two locations for viewing the falls and together are called the Niagara Falls State Park. At Prospect Point you can stand at the brink of the American Falls or take the elevator down to the river and board the Maid of the Mist Boat ride. Then it’s a five minute walk to Goat Island where you can visit Cave of the Winds, Three Sisters Islands and the brink of the Canadian Falls at Terrapin Point.

Top things to do in Niagara Falls USA !
We receive many inquiries regarding what “not to miss” while visiting our area so we’ve compiled this list for you.
A boat ride in to the mist of Niagara Falls is usually at the top of everybody’s “to do” list. You can board the Maid of the Mist from Prospect Point Park. You will have the opportunity to ride on the observation tower elevator and walk up the foot path towards the brink of the American Falls.
Do you want to get really close to the Falls? Then visit the Cave of the Winds on Goat Island in Niagara Falls NY. While you are there walk out to the “Three Sisters Islands” for a beautiful view of the upper Niagara River.
Even though it’s a fifteen to twenty minute drive from the Falls a ride on the Whirlpool Jetboat is an amazing experience which rivals the Maid of the Mist boat ride. The views are just phenomenal and the rush of riding through the rapids will leave you speechless.
If you don’t want to get wet but want to see the Lower Niagara River Rapids up close you can hike down into the gorge from Whirlpool State Park.
And that’s our take on the top things to do in Niagara Falls USA!
