Summers along the water are a true destination for people of all ages. The Canalside area has seen tremendous renovation in recent years and now hosts weekly concerts, food trucks throughout the summer, an Independence Day celebration and more. In the winter, you can also find plenty of outdoor activities like ice skating and even ice-biking! At the nearby Riverworks complex, you can find Roller Derby and curling, a popular Canadian winter sport.
Niagara Falls is the most notable natural wonder in New York State, and is less than a half-hour's drive from Buffalo. Both sides of the border offer amazing views and plenty of activities like the Maid of the Mist boat ride and the Journey Under the Falls hike.
The area offers plenty of outstanding food, including area classics like Beef on Weck and Buffalo Wings, but also tons of trendy eateries and culinary delights. Other local favorites include Lloyd's Taco Truck, Chef's Restaurant, Paula’s Donuts and Wegmans grocery stores.
Buffalo fans are some of the most devoted in the country. The Key Bank Center is home to the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bandits and New Era Field is full of Buffalo Bills fans for every home game. We are also home to a minor league baseball team, the Buffalo Bisons, who are the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Buffalo is an affordable and friendly city. Forbes named Buffalo 2017’s third most affordable city to live in. Travel and Leisure named Buffalo America’s Friendliest City in 2017 and the area is affectionately known as the City of Good Neighbors. The list of popular destinations within the area is extensive, but wouldn't be complete without the Buffalo Zoo, Shakespeare in Delaware Park, boating on Lake Erie, and the Buffalo Olmstead Parks Conservancy, the oldest parks system in America.
