The power plant exhibits were very well done and engaging. We ended up off to the side on our visit and were the only couple there and had a very in depth conversation with one of the personnel there....that was quite informative! The "trip" was fun, funny and also educational. Well done...

Niagara Jet Adventures offers the most amazing experience on the Niagara River. Based just 20 minutes from Niagara Falls, NY in Youngstown, NY guests will get a narrated guided tour of historic and geological landmarks on both Canadian to US sides. Then guests conquer the Class 5 Whirlpool Rapids all in climate-controlled dry comfort - unless guests want to get wet on our 'wet deck'.
Went to Niagara Falls on the off season, during late fall, stumbled on this gem of an adventure! Aside of the falls, was the highlight of our trip. 1700 horsepower jet boat plowing through class IV and V rapids was very exciting a bit scary...MoreWow! Thanks for the amazing review and we are so happy that you had such a great time!!!! We hope to see you again soon! Best Wishes, NJA Crew

This exciting tour outfits you in a hooded raincoat and takes you into a cave and then along a catwalk near the foot of the falls for an up-close, wet and very rewarding view of the thunderous, cascading waters.
This was unbelievable! The Canadian version is quite sedate and respectful. The American version is up close and personal, and actually in the Falls!! So much so that it hurts!!
A bit of a queue, maybe two hours (late morning), but so worth it.
You get absolutely soaked, like you've had a shower. Watch your footing.
It is unreal. Best thing we did at Niagara, on both sides. Do it

Three magnificent falls, two American and one Canadian, mark the point at which the Niagara River rumbles over the Niagara Escarpment.
If you haven't been here you're missing out. A couple of hints though. Its 3.75 to cross into Canada and $20 to park near the falls. We stayed at comfort in which was a really close walk to the American side. Canada prices were way high so try to patronize the good old USA instead. It was really cold as the end is constant, so try to go when its above 45 degrees. Spectacular anytime though. The small museum on the American side is free and you can learn a lot. Traffic can get really backed up so keep watch and m as ke a break when the lines are short. It was 30 seconds coming back across, but they really grill you going into Canada.

Old Fort Niagara is a living history site within close driving distance of Niagara Falls (both NY and Ontario) and Buffalo, NY, featuring original 18th-century stone buildings, built by the French and British, and daily interpretive programming that spans its three centuries of history. Open daily at 9 a.m. with ticket sales ending at 4:30 pm (ticket sales end at 6:30 pm in July and August).
It took a long time to get to Fort Niagara, but it was worth it. Excellently preserved Revolutionary War era fort commanding the outlet of the Niagara River into Lake Ontario. This location was militarily strategic to the armies of both sides of the Revolution and 1812 wars vs England. Originally established by the French in 1679 and taken by the British in 1759 during the French & Indian War. Captured by the U.S. in 1796 only to be taken back by the British in the War of 1812. Old Fort Niagara served as a training station and active barracks from the Civil War until the last army units were withdrawn in 1963. A New York State Park.
This historic site is very well restored and the re-enactors are true to their roles and very informative to visitors. The fort is located inside the Fort Niagara State Park next a active US Coast Guard Station.
Plan a full day to take it all in. Picnic in the park. This could be combine w/ a visit to Niagara Falls only a half hour south.
Final note: We have finally visited all the Revolutionary War era forts in NY State. The only disappointment was the same at every fort: "No sir, you may not fire the cannon!"

On our way to Niagara Falls some friends had told us about this “don’t miss” - we agree! This fort has tons of history and is very well preserved. Musket firing and talk was informative and admission price was a bit high for a state park but you can see it’s going to preserving the fort!

One of the American falls.
Bridal Veil Falls is like the little sister of the American Falls next to it, with its older cousin, Horseshoe Falls, straddling the American and Canadian borders, and forming probably one of the most beautiful natural borders in the world.
Still majestic, despite the commercialization that has cropped up around it.

A huge expanse of natural beauty, this oldest state park in the U.S. offers biking, fishing and cross-country skiing, and contains plenty of hiking and walking trails, including the Niagara Gorge Trail System, which affords great views of both the falls and the gorge.
I visited the Falls in March so it was a little wintry but it was still a great place to visit. Very scenic and nice areas to walk.

Someone recommended we stop here on our way from Niagara to Buffalo and we were not sorry we did! The Basilica itself is in need of care and signs posted said that there was some sort of legal dispute which stopped them from renovating. The grounds are beautiful though and the garden of saint statues was very inspirational. Only problem was that the weather did not cooperate. Still a beautiful experience!

The tower was really high up , and you have a great view of the falls. The only issue is the cracked cement under your feet YIKES! But over all it’s nice
