Day Trips in Niagara falls

Edit This

Niagara Falls is a beautiful area.  But once you have seen the falls, there is not much else to do.  Try taking a day trip from Niagara and see some sites in the surrounding area.

Letchworth State Park

Letchworth State Park is gorgeous and has significant waterfalls of its own. Less than two hours from Niagra Falls, if you enjoy nature and waterfalls, it is a great day trip. Letchworth State Park is known as the Grand Canyon of the east because of its magnificent 600 foot gorge. You don’t have to get out of your car and hike to enjoy this wonderful state park. The drive through the park is spectacularly scenic as well.


Incredibly cosmopolitan, Toronto, Canada is only an hour and a half away from Niagra Falls and makes a great day trip. There is plenty to see in this bustling city. When you only have one day in a city as great as this taking a tour is your best option if you want to cover a lot of ground. The CN Tower is the tallest building in the world and is Toronto’s most memorable icon. Take a ride to the top for an amazing view. For lunch enjoy the views at the Harbor Front in one of the many waterside cafes and restaurants. For hockey fans, you can make the pilgrimage to the Hockey Hall of Fame and reminisce about your favorite players.


If you want to get away from all the tourists take a short drive north to Yountgstown. Go for a stroll through Fort Niagara. See the wonderful waters edge views and historical military buildings.  


Only and hour and a half by car the city of Rochester awaits you. For some modern cultural fulfillment see an independent or foreign film at The Little Film Society. There are five screens, an art gallery, a café and live music here at this not for profit theater. The Little Film Society opens at 5pm, seven days a week. There are vineyards in this region and you can indulge in the Cayuga Wine Trail and visit some of the 16 fine wineries here. The famous Corning Museum of Glass is a fun place to visit. You can see live glass making demonstrations.


New York’s second largest city, there is plenty to see and do in Buffalo and its only 30 miles away. If you want to walk to several tourist sights in one place, park your car near Main Street. There are several heritage buildings concentrated here as well as excellent examples of many eras of architecture from Gothic to modern. There are also historic churches, the Shea´s Performing Arts Center, Lafayette Square and the CEPA Gallery. You don’t need a car to go on this day trip; public transportation is available.
