Niagara Falls State Park

Niagara Falls, New York

Niagara Falls is famous for its raging waterfalls. But since it opened in 1885, the state park has also been a place of quiet contemplation. Visitors wander nature trails and enjoy family picnics. With the completion of a $70 million renovation that includes new walkways, America’s oldest state park is more accessible than ever. “A family with a child with a disability can enjoy this park to the utmost,” says park ambassador Marc Touma. He adds that free entry and a $3 all-day trolley pass make the park affordable, too: “You could be here for very few dollars and have a great family day.” —Brian S. McGrath
