When thinking of a vacation destination, most of us don’t think of New York’s queen city, Buffalo. The fact is, however, that’s it can be one blast of a vacation getaway. The city offers great sports teams, awesome food, amazing attractions and some very cool New York hotels at a fraction of the price of most major U.S. Cities.
Food in Buffalo is some of the best in America – just ask anyone who has lived or visited there. Famous for their invention and perfection of the chicken wing, Buffalo is the home of both the Anchor Bar and Duff’s wings, considered among most to be the two best wing joints in the world. Other staples, like Jim’s Steakout, Mighty Taco, and Good Guys Pizza helps anchor the city as a major contender for best grub in the country.
Attractions run abundant in the Queen City. Elmwood Avenue offers some of the unique shopping around, ranging from one-of-a-kind clothing vendors, to vegan and organic food marts, and everything in-between.
The Albright Knox Art Gallery is considered the best Modern Art Gallery in the country, and is located just down the street on Elmwood Ave. Here, surrounded by beautiful college campuses and a scenic stroll around a local lake, the scenery nearby is gorgeous. Of course, the best visual attractions are inside, featuring the works of some of modern art’s most famous artists.
Niagara Falls is just a half hour away from the heart of the city, with the Canadian border just as close. Both sides of the boarder offer some beautiful views of the natural wonder, and plenty of photo opportunities. To top it off, there are a number of tourist-friendly areas around the waterfall, including hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and casinos.
Sports in Buffalo are bar-none. If you love football, hockey, or baseball, Buffalo is the city to visit. Football fans around the city wake up early every Sunday to begin partying, and tailgating at Ralph Wilson Stadium begins earlier than at any other stadium in the United States. HSBC, home of the Buffalo Sabres, is an awesome venue for both sports and other attractions.
In the summer time, Buffalo offers the second largest outdoor performances of Shakespeare in the United States, beaten only by New York City. Featured on a beautiful grassy hill just behind the Albright Knox, Shakespeare in the Park is one of Buffalo resident’s favorite summer attractions, bringing thousands and thousands of people in throughout the Summer.
