I love visiting Niagara Falls, NY. The scenes of the falls along with the Niagara River are just amazing. There is so much to do for free, and with the casino, the aquarium, hiking trails, and so much more nearby, it's a perfect getaway.

The fireworks every night are wonderful. I also loved the aquarium; it's small, but the sea lion show is really cool. Just walking along the Niagara River and on Goat Island and the Three Sisters Islands is really cool.

Unfortunately I was born and raised here and this city has gone downhill so far it is truly depressing and disheartening. There isn't anything for the youth to do but get into trouble following behind millennials, if their not doing that then their busy getting pregnant which I can't figure out which one is worse.

My favorite places was the Center on Center Ave., Rainbow Mall, the Wintergarden, Ice Skating Ring, Splash Park and the Black Experience in the Summer until ALL of them got closed down.
