Niagara Falls USA is home to thousands of acres of parks. Come fall, these areas show off the brilliant colors of the changing leaves — burnt orange, bright yellow, rust red — so, no matter what outdoor activity you choose, scenic beauty surrounds.
- Biking: Rent a bicycle near the entrance to Niagara Falls State Park or take advantage of the social bicycle service, Reddy Bikeshare, then pedal off for a leaf-peeping ride. You can explore historic villages by cycling along the Erie Canalway Trail.
- Fishing: Anglers can sign up for the Lake Ontario Counties Fall Trout and Salmon Derby, which offers a $25,000 grand prize for the largest trout or salmon caught. Or cast away in Lewiston or Youngstown as salmon begin their fall migration up the Niagara River and Lake Ontario tributaries.
- Apple Picking: During fall harvest, local farms welcome the public to enjoy u-pick fun. Head to Baker Farm Market & U-Pick for apple picking or Becker Farms & Vizcarra Vineyards for cider-tasting and pumpkin-browsing.
