Goat Island may be the best place to see the falls in Niagara Falls, USA. The island is surrounded by the mighty Niagara, the bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. In fact you are so close to the falls, it's startling!
Three Sisters Islands is also easy to get to from Goat Island which puts you very close to the rapids just above the Horseshoe Falls. Caution! It may be tempting to wade in the waters but not a good idea to take the chance. Parking will cost you $10.
Cave of the Winds, which takes you to the base of the Bridal Veil Falls, is a great attraction at $11 adults, $8 for ages 6-12.
Maid of the Mist on the US side is accessed from Goat Island at $13.50 adults, $7.85 ages 6-12.
The Niagara Scenic Trolley is a great way to see the island at $2 adults, $1 for kids.
From the 190 North in Buffalo, take exit #21 to the Robert Moses Parkway and follow to the signs for Goat Island.
