Things to Do in Niagara Falls USA

The Niagara Region is home to one of the most diverse and spectacular freshwater sport fisheries on the planet. The Niagara River, Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, and the Erie Canal, are all within casting distance for salmon, trout, bass, walleye and muskellunge, to name a few. You can fish for many of these species year-round. Aside from fishing, there is a myriad of outdoor adventure activities, history, culture and attractions to experience year-round in Niagara Falls USA.

Nothing says the great outdoors like a trip to Niagara Falls USA. Whether you are hiking through one of our scenic state parks, riding along our bike trails, birdwatching or spending time on the water, there is something for everyone to enjoy in our beautiful destination.

Of course, your trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to Niagara Falls State Park. America’s oldest state park, open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, brings you closer than you ever thought possible to the grandeur of the Falls. For a close-up view, head to the Cave of the Winds (open year-round), where you are situated at the base of the Bridal Veil Falls. Stay past sunset to watch the colorful nightly illumination of the Falls.

If history is more your thing, look no further! Go all the way back to the Revolutionary War with a visit to Old Fort Niagara, an 18th century fortress that offers immersive living history programs. Visit the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center or the Freedom Crossing Monument in Lewiston to learn more about the role that the Niagara region played in the Underground Railroad movement. Another historical site to see is the Erie Canal in Lockport, where you can witness the engineering marvel of Flight of Five locks and explore the Erie Canal Discovery Center.

Within a few blocks of the Niagara Falls Convention Center, you will find the Aquarium of Niagara, the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino, and many hotels and restaurants.
