Things to Do in Buffalo
While there’s a myriad of things to do in Buffalo, some of your most memorable moments will be when you pause to take in the je ne sais quoi of “The Queen City.” Located on the banks of Lake Erie, this stately metropolis is home to some extraordinary feats of architecture, and we’re not just referring to historic Buffalo lodging. City Hall anchors downtown with intricate art deco elegance while Frank Lloyd Wright’s Darwin D. Martin House brings unmatchable artistry to the Parkside neighborhood uptown. Since the early 19th century, Buffalo has been building a beautiful cityscape, so get outside and look around.
Come rain or come shine, the revelry at Canalside will remind you of the first week after summer solstice, when we all shake off the last drops of spring showers and everyone steps outside to soak up some vitamin D and goodwill. In addition to the friendly waterfront atmosphere, tap into the region’s emerging craft brewing industry at many of the pubs and community events. Almost daily, Canalside is the site of a concert or festival, from evening art classes to Saturday morning markets. Picture yourself spending a carefree day on the river’s edge, then make it so.
Nothing evokes the nostalgia of warm days and carefree nights quite like the glow of an antique marquee. Since 1920, the North Park Theatre has been the place to take a first date or stay up late with friends for a midnight premiere. Line up for tickets on historic Hertel Avenue and sink into the green velour seats for a sneak peek at the coming attractions. By the time your feature begins, you may expect to see Joan Crawford grace the silver screen.
Eating and Drinking
So far, we’ve explored uptown and downtown, but don’t skip the neighborhoods in between. With unique boutiques and brilliant bistros, Allentown and Elmwood Village close the distance between high-rises and sprawling mansions. As you eat your way through the city, be sure to try Buffalo’s signature Beef on a Weck—a spicy, horseradish-infused roast beef sandwich on an iconic German kummelweck roll. If you’re wondering where to stay in Buffalo near fabulous food, read on, traveler.
Just north of the city center, Allentown wears as many stylish hats as it sells. As the home of the Buffalo Historical Society, this close-knit neighborhood artfully toes the line between old-timey charm and avant-garde. Antique stores and vintage shops are splashed with the bright stripes of rainbow pride flags and steeped in the savory scent of the city’s top kitchens. Don’t be fooled by its industrial past; Allentown is the place to go for inviting international eats in a relaxed Bohemian environment.
Farther afield, Elmwood Village also boasts some of the city’s finest cuisine and top hotels in Buffalo, but instead of brightly painted brick, mod Greek cafes and sleek sushi bars fill renovated craftsman houses and Victorian walk-ups. In the north side of the district, you’ll find many of Buffalo’s most popular art venues, including the Albright–Knox Art Gallery—a favorite among modern and contemporary art lovers. Mingle with Renoir and Rousseau by day and nibble on New American cuisine come evening. Take a bite out of history at Cole’s, which has been throwing parties and fostering community since the end of Prohibition. In this case, history tastes a lot like a Beer Brat Burger and a pint of malty amber ale.
Year-round, Buffalo invites you outside. You may need to trade your favorite summer sandals for ice skates on occasion, but you’ll be glad you did. After the first deep freeze, you can lace up your skates, leave the warm Buffalo rooms behind, and practice you single axel with a view of the river at Canaside. For a slower pace, wander through the pristine landscape that Forest Lawn becomes under fresh flakes (it’s gorgeous in full bloom, too). As one of the first cemeteries in the United States, Forest Lawn is both a somber public garden and a beloved historic landmark.
Even in freezing weather, the cacti and orchids at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens thrive. In the warmth of a stunning Victorian glass greenhouse, discover tropical and desert flora and many other species from around the world, or step out to for quiet meditation in one of the themed seasonal gardens, like the Healing Garden or the Peace Garden. Let nature work its magic.
Fallow the Falls
Speaking of magic, the thundering cascades and refreshing mists of Niagara Falls are a short, 20-mile drive along the scenic I-90. Climb to the observation deck at Cave of the Winds and take care to pack an umbrella and slicker. There, you will get up close and personal with some of the region’s most thrilling falls. Nearby, the smaller—but still powerful—Bridal Veil Falls are the perfect backdrop to personal reflection…or a proposal (not just because of the name, mind you). There are many more enchanting vistas to encounter. Reserve hotels near Niagara Falls so you can spend some time exploring the gorgeous area.
