hiking-bootTo say you and your friends are “outdoorsy” would be an understatement. It’s more like you’re programmed for adventure and exploration—the more exciting, the better. You didn’t come all the way from Canada to sit still! So get ready to give your Fitbits® a workout, because here’s what we have in store for you.

You and your fellow femmes are going to need some serious fuel for the active days ahead. Point your sneakers to Elmwood Village for a meal at one of their charming cafes. Hit the streets in search of a new pair of yoga pants or some sporty kicks at the neighborhood boutiques. Try a taste of Buffalo’s signature sponge candy from Watson’s or Fowler’s.

When it’s time to get down to business. Head out to Canalside to challenge your friends to a race on a water bike in the summer or an ice bike in the winter! Both will give you a new thrill to add to your “been there, done that, loved every minute of it” list.

If you’ve had one piece of sponge candy too many, burn it off at the Tifft Nature Preserve, where you can explore miles of trails. Or head to Chestnut Ridge Park and hike your way to the eternal flame. Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, head over to Toutant for a Southern-style supper that’ll knock your socks off. Give the biscuits a try and you won’t be disappointed if the shrimp and grits or fried chicken find their way into your toned tummy. If you’re looking for fare more on the lighter side, try authentic tacos at Lloyd Taco Factory.

Here’s to a girlfriend getaway filled with thrills, fun and bonding in Buffalo!
