Buffalo's Neighborhoods


Great Pumpkin Farm

Charming & Historic

Erie County’s first township – dating back to 1808 – is filled with historic charm. Sip afternoon tea, sup and stay overnight at a 162-year-old inn. Spend a Sunday antiquing. Or hike in nearby Akron. A trip to Clarence will take you back to a simpler time.

Route 5 Road Trip

Long before Interstate 90 shuttled motorists from Albany to Buffalo, New York State Route 5 was a main east-west highway. To drive it from downtown Buffalo eastward is to see the city transition into the suburbs and countryside within an hour’s time.

Small town America really takes hold after proceeding east of Transit Road into the town of Clarence. You’ll find the Red Mill Inn Restaurant, which has operated out of a 19th century farmhouse for over 50 years, and the Asa Ransom House, which offers everything from afternoon tea and supper to overnight accommodations in a quaint 1800s inn. There are even ruins of Asa Ransom’s grist mill at the rear of the property.

Keep heading out Route 5 for another vintage experience – Sunday morning shopping at Antique World, where you’re sure to discover rare gems and quirky finds. Nearby are the grounds for the Great Pumpkin Farm Fall Festival, a family favorite for its weekend carnivals, cider and ample pumpkin selection each autumn.

Proceed into Akron and Corfu for two more classic road trip experiences. Just a short jaunt from Route 5 is Akron Falls County Park, a hidden gem in Erie County with a hiking trail to a waterfall that’s especially spectacular each spring. And a good last stop is Kutter’s Cheese Factory and outlet store, which has been making cheese for over 90 years – nearly 70 of which have been in the same Corfu location.


Vintage Finds at Antique World


On an upcoming fall weekend, hit the road on the great New York State Route 5, head out into the Western New York countryside and step back in time for a few hours.

That’s what our friends Billy & Pat Sandora-Nastyn just did. In their latest video, Billy & Pat explore the quirky and unusual finds at Antique World in Clarence, Western New York’s largest antique and flea market.

Their takeaways included vintage Garfield drinking glasses, a Hudson Bay blanket  and Buffalo decorations.  Read more about Antique World here.
