I went with my girlfriend. It was great to see the falls. We admired them as the sun set. The rapids were fast that day.

I had never been to Rochester, so we did some exploring. Nice to be able to read the history of the falls.

Great free walking spot. At night there are light displays at different times of the year. I visited during the day on a walk. Great view.

We visited this area from the Platt Street Bridge. Wonderful views and good photo opportunities from there We visited the museum and also went to the brewery across the bridge. A fun way to spend an hour or so.

One of Rochester's "been there, done that" - you really should see it. Especially if you are a college kid, not from NY, and moving somewhere else. Large pedestrian bridge with many photo ops. It was cold, but we are very glad we stopped even...More
