9 Epic Adventures Every Buffalonian Must Take Before They Die
You only live once. Or, as the kids say, “YOLO.” So why not make your one and only lifetime as exciting as possible? You don’t have to travel far or spend loads of money to experience amazing activities. Here are 9 epic adventures every Buffalonian must take before they die.
1. Zipline at Niagara Falls.
You have to cross the border for this one, but it's worth the hassle at the Peace Bridge to cross along the Falls on a zip line. This is one of the most epic adventures near the 716. We highly recommend adding it to your bucket list!
2. Hike at Zoar Valley.
Hiking at Zoar Valley
isn't for the weak, but if you love a good challenge, spectacular views, being surrounded by nature, and feeling like you've been transported to another world, this is the place to be. Take a leisurely hike or trek the tougher trails. Whatever you do – this is one adventure that shouldn't be missed.
3. Rock climb at RiverWorks.
Kick your fear of heights to the curb as you rock climb the grain silos at Riverworks. This
beloved waterfront destination
offers fantastic fun all year long, but conquering the silo climb is one of our favorite activities here. This is one of the epic adventures you can only take advantage of in Buffalo. C'mon, live a little!
4. Take a safari at Hidden Valley Animal Adventure.
You don't have to travel to another continent to be surrounded by zebras and exotic animals on safari! A quick trip from Buffalo to Varysburg will bring you to this epic adventure park. You can feed exotic animals right from your hand (err, cup) at this amazing attraction. Check out our previous feature article
for more information.
5. Take a tour of the city.
Whether you opt for a Buffalo History Tour, Tiki Tour, Double Decker Bus Tour, or just plain walking tour, get out and learn about our great city with one of the
incredible guided tours
offered around town. These epic adventures are all unique, but each one has the same goal in mind: to share the beauty of Buffalo with everyone!
6. Ride a mountain coaster in Ellicottville.
These next few epic adventures are for the outdoorsy folks. First up: ride a mountain roller coaster in Ellicottville. This coaster is located at Hidden Valley's Sky High Adventure Park. And let us just tell you – it's a ride you won't soon forget! For more info, check out our previous article about this cool coaster
7. Conquer the ropes course at Peek'n Peak Resort.
Put on your brave pants for this one, friends! The
ropes course at Peek'n Peak Resort
is situated high in the trees and provides an epic adventure for everyone who visits.
8. Ride a water bike
In the summer months, hit the water to pedal on Buffalo's famous water bikes. You'll experience the city from a whole new perspective (and maybe even work up a sweat while you're at it)!
9. Toboggan at Chestnut Ridge Park.
Back to reality: winters are long here. So it's only obvious that we would have epic adventures to enjoy in the snow.
Tobogganing at Chestnut Ridge
tops our list of must-dos in the winter months. But if you need even more inspiration, check out ice bikes and curling at Canalside and ice skating at Fountain Plaza, too!
