Watkins Glen State Park


Glen Creek has carved a dramatic gorge into the Watkins Glen hillside, resulting in a large, cavern-like network of rock formations. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade.


Niagara Falls Night Tour


Get closer to America's Oldest State Park at Niagara Falls State Park! Enjoy some awe-inspiring sceneries and adventure-packed experience with us! Niagara Falls is actually not one waterfall, but three. The Niagara River flows down from Lake Erie and is divided by Goat Island. There, part of it flows to the horseshoe-shaped Canadian Falls (aptly named Horseshoe Falls), and the rest flows to the American Falls. At the American falls, the river is also split by a second small island, Luna Island, creating the third, small waterfall known as Bridal Veil Falls.


 

Tips:
Watkins Glen State Park is a summer itinerary, executed after the opening of the canyon, usually from April to October each year.

Old Fort Niagara State Park


Old Fort Niagara is a rich historical landmark. It spans more than 300 years and its commanding presence on the great lake caused it to play a critical role in major wars of: The French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and the War of 1812. The gorgeous Lake Ontario lies behind the Fort too.

It's the combination of height and volume that makes the Niagara Falls so beautiful. More than 6 million cubic ft. (168,000 cubic meters) of water lays over the crest line of the falls every minute during daytime peak tourist hours. The famous Maid of the Mist ride gets passengers as close as possible to the Niagara Falls!
