Niagara Falls New York offers many attractions to the visiting tourist, not the least of which is, of course, the beautiful view of the falls. The first place you should plan to visit is the Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center. Here you will be able to find maps and information so you can plan out your visit here in New York. The center houses displays and exhibits where you can learn about the area and as beautiful gardens outside.

If you want a great view of American falls, then you want to visit the Niagara Falls observation tower. Here you can stand on the observation deck which jets out over Niagara Gorge and look directly into the waters of the falls. Take one of the glass elevators down to the base where you can board the Maid Of The Mist.

The Maid Of The Mist is actually one of North America's oldest attractions and is a six under passenger boat that will ferry you right up to the foaming waters under the falls. This half-hour tour is sure to be like nothing you've ever seen before!

Niagara Falls New York also offers a scenic trolley where you can get a half-hour guided tour of the park. The trolley makes 6 stops where you can get off and explore the different attractions.

At Bridal Veil Falls, you can experience the Cave of the Winds tour which really is no longer cave but a series of wooden walkways and decks we can get within 20 feet of the raging waters of the falls. While these falls are the smallest of the three, they shouldn't be discounted as the tour is quite exhilarating and you're almost guaranteed to see a rainbow whether it be day or night.

If you are interested in learning the local history of the area, and the discovery Center with its interactive displays and someplace you won't want to miss. The Niagara Falls aquarium that sits just outside the park in New York has over 1500 aquatic animals.

Niagara Falls New York also offers other activities and attractions such as the adventure theater and nature walks. In addition to tourist attractions, you can also find great lodging and dining in this New York vacation haven.
