You can explore the fall and get some exercise. Walk across the stone arch bridge to explore the east or west banks of the river.

When visiting downtown area we happened across the falls bridge and the parking lot that allowed for closer viewing. The sound alone of the falls is worth the stop.

there is a well marked trail to walk or bike around the waterfront. Lovely to do on a nice day. Inexpensive bike rentals readily available all over city.
