Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Buffalo is having a renaissance based around its proximity to nature and its vibrant environment. Buffalo’s remarkable transformation includes a redeveloped waterfront, revitalized neighborhoods, and a burgeoning craft beer scene. With many watering holes waiting until 4 a.m. for last call, it’s clear Buffalo knows a thing or two about nightlife. From old-school taverns and dive bars to craft beers, casinos, and live music, the Nickel City runs from dusk to near dawn.

The city is most famously known for its wings. Buffalo’s Anchor Bar changed the course of American food history in 1964 by inventing the Buffalo-style chicken wing. In the decades since, Buffalo’s corner taverns have perfected variations on the wing, each with its own secret recipe.

While you’re in Buffalo, you’ll be right by Niagara Falls State Park, known for its scenic beauty. The raw power of 4-6 million cubic feet of water rushing over the edges every minute of the day is a true natural wonder that can be experienced by land or water.


Buffalo has a number of different options to get around the city. Public transportation in Buffalo is run by Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, which has over 60 bus routes and can get you to the light rail, the Buffalo Metro Rail.
