BuffaloFor Real

Buffalo and Western New York shine during summer. Every weekend is full of activities, from the Allentown Art Festival in June to the National Buffalo Wing Festival on Labor Day weekend. And nearly every weeknight is too, from Food Truck Tuesdays at Larkin Square to weekly concerts at Canalside on Thursdays. From the waterfront to the Olmsted Parks system and everywhere in between, Buffalo makes the absolute most out of summer. So grab a charcoal broiled hot dog, wash it down with one of Buffalo’s many craft beers and then head to the waterfront for an ice cream cone and a sunset; it’s time to enjoy all the season has to offer!

Our web site is designed to give you the insider's perspective on our surprising city of Buffalo, New York. You'll find complete visitor information and travel planning resources for Buffalo and Niagara Falls as well as everything you need to plan a great getaway, including information on Buffalo attractions, Buffalo hotels, Buffalo shopping, Buffalo events and Buffalo dining.
