11 Unforgettable Things You Must Add To Your Buffalo Summer Bucket List
The only thing better than a summer road trip is the chance to be a tourist in your own city, and in our humble opinion, Buffalo is the very best city of all to explore. The next time you’re looking for fun in the 716, try out these 11 unforgettable things to add to your Buffalo summer bucket list:
1. Tour the town on a Buffalo Pedal Tour
Buffalo Pedal Tours are a great way to bike around Buffalo like never before! There are several tour options available - from downtown pub crawls to meandering through Canalside and even hitting the water on a Cycle Boat Tour! Whatever you decide, this is one activity that definitely deserves a spot on your Buffalo summer bucket list.
2. Relax on the Moondance Cat
The Moondance Catamaran is a 75-passenger catamaran that sets sail on Lake Erie for group charters and individual tours. Opt for an afternoon cruise to soak in the sun or opt for an evening outing for an on-board wet bar and dinner options.
3. Navigate the waters on a Buffalo River History Tour

7. Bring your appetite to Food Truck Tuesdays
Food trucks. Live music. Summer weather. Be there or be (Larkin) Square! Mark your calendar for every Tuesday during the summer for this must-visit Buffalo event.
8. Shop local at the Downtown Buffalo Country Market
Bored on your lunch break downtown? If it's a Tuesday or Thursday, head to Main Street to check out the Downtown Buffalo Country Market! This market is on the smaller side, but the vendors always come to impress with fresh flowers, produce, and one of our personal favorites, Duke's Donuts!
9. Catch a Buffalo Bisons game at Coca-Cola Field
Take yourself out to the ball game this summer at Coca-Cola Field to watch the Bisons play America's favorite pastime. It might seem like a no-brainer, but this is definitely one activity that NEEDS a spot on your Buffalo summer bucket list.
10. Dive into history at the Naval Park
Canalside is great for people-watching, Shark Girl selfies, dining, and outdoor activities, but it's also a great spot to soak in some knowledge on Buffalo's past. The Naval Park is a great place to step back in time and get an up-close and personal view of some seriously impressive military ships and airplanes.
11. Enjoy the simple things on a scenic walk
Delaware Park, Tifft Nature Preserve, Buffalo Outer Harbor, Elmwood Village... wherever you choose to take in the scenery of the city, a walk is almost always the best choice to truly experience all that Buffalo has to offer.
