Niagara Falls USA Official Visitor CenterOur bus brought us to the Niagara Falls USA Official Visitor Center on Rainbow Boulevard, what a brilliant first stop! We were greeted politely by the helpful staffs in the visitor center, oh those happy faces made our day! They provided us with plenty of information about the state park, tips on delicious affordable food stops, the bus schedule and also, the center provided complimentary luggage storage, just what we were looking for!
Maid of the Midst"Maid of the Midst" is the favorite park attraction for more than 150 years for a good reason! It brings you pass the base of the American Falls, and go as close as you can get to the roaring Horseshoe Falls. It was certainly the highlight of the day. All guests get a souvenir rain poncho (which is cool, I still have it with me.)

State Park TrolleyWe bought our all-day-unlimited-ride trolley pass from a kiosk at the base of the observation tour. For only $3, it was a great value. It stops at all 8 attractions in the park as the your guide tells you interesting stories and facts about the Niagara Falls.
Goat IslandThis is truly a gem of the state park! If you are exploring on foot, simply walk to the other side through a pedestrian bridge.
Luna IslandFrom the pedestrian bridge you can walk to the Luna Island for an amazing bird-eye eye of the Bridal Veil Falls. Yes, you are standing on a platform right on top of it! Although the Bridal Veil Falls is the smallest falls of all (a part of American Falls), it is still I-M-P-R-E-S-S-I-V-E! We had a chance to get some close up photos of the falls. (if you dare, look down to the base of the falls to get an idea of the magnitude.)

1. If you are interested with the Cave of the Winds ride too, check out the "Discovery Pass" for maximum saving!
|Italian Buffet, $5.|
3. If you collect postcards like me, the Niagara State Park official stamp can be found in the visitor center on Rainbow Boulevard.
4. Apply for a Canada Visa too and walk across the border. You won't regret it! The view from the Skylon tower is said to be the best.
