Things to Do in Buffalo
While best known for its Buffalo chicken wings, there's a lot more to this vibrant city. Whether you're here on business or leisure, take some time to explore the wide variety of historical and cultural attractions. Learn about the locale's past by visiting Old Fort Niagara, which dates back three centuries and was the site of many battles, then head to the Market Arcade, a 19th-century shopping center that still serves as a gathering spot for locals and tourists. Commemorate the life of a World War II hero at the Lt. Col. Matt Urban Memorial, and be sure to take a stroll through the historic Lafayette and Niagara squares.
For a cultural excursion, plan a trip to the Albright-Knox Art Museum in Delaware Park, a popular institution known for its stunning collection of French Impressionist works and American masterpieces. The Burchfield Penney Art Center is another must-see spot, which displays works by local artists as well as renowned painter Charles Burchfield. Architecture buffs won't want to miss out on the Prudential Building - the first modern skyscraper erected in the late 19th century. Listen to some live music at the Allen Street Hardware cafe, grab a bite to eat at Betty's, then end the evening with a nightcap at Anchor Bar.
