7 Spots to Bring the Kids

“I’m booooored.”

For most parents, there’s nothing worse than hearing those words. Mostly because your kids are saying it as they’re surrounded by every toy they’ve ever owned, a library full of books, iPads, iPods and iAssumeAMillionOtherThings. The cure for the common kid complaint is a visit to Buffalo Niagara, chock-full of kid tested and kid approved activities. Whether you call Buffalo home or it’s your next checkmark on the family travel bucket list, here’s a list of 7 things to keep the kiddies happy, engaged and boredom-free.
