9 Absolutely Amazing Places To Visit In Buffalo
We’re one of the most architecturally renowned cities in America, we have a ton of history behind us, our food and drink scene is on the rise, we’re welcoming to others,
and a great place for new start-ups to thrive. On top of that, Buffalo is full of amazing places – here are our nine favorites.
1. Darwin Martin House
Located at 125 Jewett Parkway, the Darwin Martin House is a masterpiece created by architectural great Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is available for guided tours and photography tours, where you can view the complex up close and personal.
2. Noodle in the Northern Lights
Noodle in the Northern Lights is a part of the Albright-Knox public art initiative, located at 710 Main Theatre. The colorful mural spans 240 feet in Buffalo's Theatre District and is - not surprisingly - a great place for photo-ops!
Shea's is located at 646 Main Street and is a cornerstone in Buffalo entertainment. The theatre itself is a National Historic Site, and hosts touring Broadway performances on stage.
The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is located at 1285 Elmwood Avenue. The gallery features modern and contemporary art pieces as well as special exhibitions, and hosts several events - such as First Fridays hosted by M&T Bank.
5. Hoyt Lake/Delaware Park
If you're looking for natural elements in the city, head to 199 Lincoln Parkway and enjoy the scenery from Hoyt Lake and Delaware Park. Stay on the shores for a stroll or hit the waters with Hoyt Lake Rowboats, available for rent in Delaware Park.
6. Theodore Roosevelt's Inaugural National Historic Site
The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site is Buffalo's only National Parks Service site, located at 641 Delaware Avenue. The site preserves the home where Roosevelt was sworn into presidency in 1901, and is open seven days a week for visitors and tours.
7. Buffalo City Hall
Buffalo City Hall is located at 65 Niagara Square, and you can't miss this 32-story Art Deco building! While City Hall is certainly impressive from the outside, it's what's inside that really matters. Be sure to check out the sunburst skylight and head to the observation deck for stunning views of the city.
Canalside is one of Buffalo's most popular spots for outdoor entertainment, and it really shows off at night during the spring and summer. Walk along the paved pathways, grab a bite to eat or a drink at a nearby restaurant, and enjoy the sights as lights illuminate the grain silos over the water.
RiverWorks is another up-and-coming popular spot on Buffalo's waterfront. Most recently, they announced the opening of a brewery inside the grain silos - thought to be the first of its kind in the world! If you're heading to RiverWorks, plug in 359 Ganson Street into your GPS, or just look for the giant Labbatt Blue cans!
