Amherst Hotel & Travel Guide

It’s surrounding yourself with the mist of waterfalls and the soothing swish of coursing creeks. It’s passing the aromatic lavender fields and rolling vineyards. It’s savoring the local tomato pie with each slow, deliberate bite. Stop and inhale this place into your entire being. These are the moments. These are the things that make the journey as meaningful as the destination. The region around Amherst, New York, isn’t all tranquil valleys and post card-ready waterways, though—nearby, monthly Buffalo festivals tug at your raucous side to come rain, shine, or snow to partake in the revelry. So, before you chase gorgeous waterfalls, check out our best hotels in Buffalo, pack a slicker, and make Buffalo part of the journey.

Visiting Amherst

Leave the glimmer of the big city to revel in the incandescent glow of sunshine over the wide open landscape from Amherst hotels. While away the hours in the emerald-green gardens of Amherst State Park, and meander along Ellicott Creek with warblers singing in the trees. Farther north, the terrain is sprinkled with wineries ripe for the tasting. Even in the first century, Pliny the Elder knew, “In wine, there’s truth.” One sip will tell you everything about your destination, after all—from weather patterns to the richness of New York soil.

No one’s expecting you to ride down the falls in a barrel, though that would certainly raise the bar on your last scuba diving trip to the Red Sea. Instead, take one of our Amherst rental cars on a scenic 20-mile journey north to Goat Island in Niagara Falls. This tiny oasis is home to the mammoth Cave of the Winds—towering cascades that will soak you to the skin and renew your spirit in the region’s invigorating rushing waters. Warm up in one of our cozy hotels near Amherst, NY, or celebrate your journey at one of the many events in Buffalo, like the summertime Buffalo River Fest—a joyous ode to the region with local bands filling the air with tunes and plenty of food trucks for filling your plate.

The natural enchantment you’ll encounter in Upstate New York is priceless. Travelocity promises you the best deals on hotels in Amherst, NY available. Go with the flow. See where it takes you.
