We Double-Dog Dare You To Spend The Night On This Haunted Buffalo Ship
We’ve mentioned before that Buffalo is full of spooky, seemingly haunted places. While Iron Island might take the crown for the most haunted spot, this ironclad giant is a very close second. The best way to get one-on-one contact with the ghosts onboard the ship is sleeping with them! We double-dog dare you to spend the night on this haunted Buffalo ship.
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
While only select groups can currently stay overnight on U.S.S. The Sullivans, the Buffalo and Erie Canal Naval & Military Park is open to the public. Other historic ships housed here include the U.S.S. Little Rock and the U.S.S. Croaker. There is an outdoor exhibit area displaying other military vehicles and aircraft, including an Army M-41 Tank and Air Force F-101F Voodoo Fighter Interceptor Jet. Stop by the museum to see some truly fascinating artifacts!
Admission to the park is $12 for adults, $6 for kids, $8 for seniors, and free for active duty armed service personnel (veterans receive a 10% discount). Buffalo and Erie Canal Naval & Military Park also hosts several special events throughout the year. You can find more info on their website here.
