cool view. fun breweries and downtown bars, and the bridge out over the river is fun, but the river trail is sporadic and messy

Nice and easy walk with views to the falls through different points in the area. Crossing the bridge gives you panoramas of the city.

Enjoyable and short look at the unique urban falls (overlook and pedestrian bridge). Take the time to try food/drink at Genesee Brew House next door.

Very scenic walk around the falls, and an overlook with an unobstructed view of the falls. After walking the trail, you can eat at the Genesee Brew House. The food and beverages are very good. They also have a balcony deck and a roof deck.

Best view from the Ponte de Rennes pedestrian bridge. The Genesee Brew House restaurant, bar, gift shop is at one end of this bridge.
