We visited High Falls on a beautiful sunny fall day. It was very impressive and we enjoyed walking across the pedestrian bridge.

We visited High Falls for a photo op of the falls and the city skyline. There is a pedestrian bridge. We stopped to include the Genesee Brewery for a lunch stop with outside seating and view of the falls. Worth an hour of your time.

As waterfalls go, this is not the most natural one with all the concrete and metal around. It also does not smell very nice. If you do go, the best view is from the roof terrace of the Genesee brew house rather than from the...More
