Buffalo was once a quintessential 19th century boomtown, but this city is now a modern-day metropolis of culture and outdoor adventure waiting to be discovered. From exploring the nearby Niagara Falls to taking in the architectural wonders, Buffalo offers up a plethora of things to do on any trip.
Quite naturally, any visitor's top activity in Buffalo should be the spectacular Niagara Falls. Just a 20-minute drive from downtown Buffalo, the falls are a staggering display of the force and beauty of nature, and are sure to awe any observer. The roaring phenomenon can be heard from afar, and offers endless photo opportunities. On the Cave of the Winds tour, a 175-foot elevator takes you into the Niagara Gorge where you cross a wooden walkway to the Hurricane Deck, which navigates you within 20 feet of Bridal Veil Falls.
With over 20 professional theatre companies, there are plenty of opportunities to experience live performances while visiting Buffalo. Broadway musicals and European-style opera houses in no shortage of grandeur and vintage charm offer both classic and contemporary musicals. Perhaps unknown to many wine enthusiasts, Buffalo is located between two wine trails. Due to the ideal microclimate and soil condition that exist along Lake Erie, the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario, Buffalo is the perfect place for wine tours. Located just south of Buffalo is Lake Erie Wine Country, which boasts the largest grape growing region east of the Rockies. The Niagara Wine Trail is located to the north, and features a list of world-class wines.
But don't let the awe-inspiring grandeur of the falls and winery options distract you from the cultural gems the city has to offer. While this is a modern, working-class city, Buffalo is also full of American history, and exploring it is a must on any list of activities when visiting. Home to a notable collection of 19th and 20th century architecture, including the Frank Lloyd Wright created Darwin D. Martin House Complex, this city also boasts the National Historic Landmark of Roycroft Campus. No other community had as strong an influence on the development of American architecture and design in the early 20th century than Roycroft.
Whether it's outdoor adventure, contemporary culture, or historical architecture, Buffalo is a destination that can truly offer something memorable to any visitor.
