    Best place to snap a sunrise shot of the falls is the Virginia side! Such gorgeous nature so close to civilization!

    Очень приятное место для прогулок в любое время года. Но одевайтесь теплее. На мостах может быть сильный ветер.

    Perfect place for hiking and/or relaxing...go early...$5 for entrance and cash is quicker...Instead bringing lunch try BBQ, it is more fun...restrooms are miserable but who cares.

    You might as well get a year-long parking pass. It's $20, and goes to a good cause! You'll get your money's worth in 4 visits.
