Description:

These three waterfalls are located a short distance north from the city of Buffalo. They are one of the most amazing geological and natural wonders on the planet.  Spectacular scenic views (Prospect Point), attractions (Maid of the Mist boat, Cave of the Winds) and history make it an international tourism destination and the honeymoon capital.

The waterfalls, rapids, islands, gorge and landscape attract visitors from around the world.  You can hike the Niagara Gorge Trail and the Riverwalk for many scenic views.  Niagara Reservation State Park surrounds the falls and is the oldest state park in the US.  The Observation Tower takes you to the base of American Falls.
