Taughannock Falls State Park's namesake waterfall is one of the outstanding natural attractions of the Northeast. Taughannock Falls plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge. Gorge and rim trails offer spectacular views from above the falls and from below at the end of the gorge trail. Campsites and cabins overlook Cayuga Lake, with marina, boat launch and beach nearby. A multi-use trail--hiking, cross-country skiing--winds past sledding slopes and natural skating ponds.

An 1820s swing barn turned winery, Americana offers historical charm to ease into your adventures with delectable wines, meals, and even homemade fudge. The LGBTQ-owned winery prides itself on knowing how to host a good time and create a sense of community for anyone who visits, starting from the moment you enter the property and are greeted by Maverick and Lilly--the owner’s two rescued labradors.

This trip was wonderful and even beyond our expectation, not only because of the amazing falls that expressed a lot, but also this well-arranged trip that really needs you to worry about anything. I will memory this experience and recommend it to my family and friends. If you have a chance, do not hesitant, just go, no regrets to have this amazing experience!

If you had not been Niagara Falls before, I strongly recommended you to take part in this journey! Niagara Theater IMAX did not let me down, it was great, and simply narrate the history of falls in a relatively simple way. Although I am not an English-native speaker I could understand what this movie talked about.

The long-time journey did not influence my exciting emotion when I saw the Niagara Falls. The hotel was comfortable as well. Our tour guide was excellent and could speak English and a little bit of Chinese. The falls were so beautiful, especially in summer. We love all the attractions particularly dawdling at Niagara Falls surrounding after finishing dinner. The night sightseeing of Niagara Falls was also brilliant as well!
