Niagara Falls has mesmerized visitors for centuries. This spectacular natural wonder is easily witnessed anytime of the year. Twelve million visitors a year come to see and hear what happens when 150,000 gallons of water per second cascade down a 176-foot high rock face. Niagara Falls is America's oldest state park and now features a new Visitor Center with exhibits on the history, ecology, geology and wildlife of the falls. You'll also want to gaze at this wonder from the observation decks above and ride the Maid of the Mist below. Don't forget to watch the falls from Goat Island.
While Niagara Falls is the biggest single attraction in the region, there's much more to see and enjoy. Tour the museums, visit the Aquarium of Niagara, enjoy a night of theater or visit a zoo in the city of Buffalo. Try your luck at the Seneca Niagara Casino. Discover some of New York State's earliest transportation systems by exploring the Erie Canal and 19th century rail routes.
