The Ancient Forest Near Buffalo That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

Buffalo may be one of New York’s biggest cities, but it happens to be surrounded by nature. From the major natural wonders like Niagara Falls to the smaller picturesque parks, there are numerous ways to enjoy the great outdoors here, and if you make a quick 48-mile drive from Buffalo, you’ll find yourself at the beautiful Genesee County Park and Forest.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Genesee County Parks Department website has more information on the events throughout the year.

We love our wonderful parks system here in Buffalo. For a peaceful escape that’s a little closer to home, check out Walton Woods.
