Getting Around the City
Buffalo is billed as the “20-Minute City” for its lack of traffic delays and blissfully brief commutes.
Arts and Culture
World-class galleries, a robust theater scene and music for every ear make Western New York a major arts destination. Our riches include the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, BPO and Shea's.
History and Museums
Stand where Theodore Roosevelt took the oath of office. Gaze at the terminus of the Erie Canal. Wander through a fort that played a pivotal role in the French and Indian War.
Food and Dining
Chicken wings put our city on the culinary map, but there’s much more to Buffalo’s diverse food scene. A broad selection of upscale restaurants and ethnic eateries reflects the region’s cultural mix.
From quaint pubs and cozy corner coffeehouses to stylish dance clubs and eclectic live-music joints, you’re sure to find a scene in one of several distinct districts that suits your style and your budget.
Hiking, skiing, water sports and more: The area’s outdoor scene offers an array of opportunities to be active year-round. We’ve got top-rated golf courses, not to mention Lake Erie and the Niagara River.
Buffalo is home to two major professional sports teams—the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills and the National Hockey League’s Buffalo Sabres—and some of the world’s most spirited fans.
