Buffalo’s legacy as one of our nation’s most important transportation and industrial centers rose from our impressive waterfront. No visit to the Queen City would be complete without a trip to our shores.

Canalside is the jewel in our crown. The result of over $300 million in new development, Canalside hosts over 1,000 annual events. Every summer, outdoor yoga, children’s games and Thursday at Canalside concerts take place along the district’s Central Wharf.

Each winter, throngs of visitors flock to the Ice at Canalside, a 35,000 square foot rink on the recreated Erie Canal that features, skating, curling, pond hockey and ice bikes. Across the street, LECOM Harborcenter attracts hockey players from around the world by hosting amateur and college tournaments at its two NHL sized rinks. And sports and food fanatics are flocking to the two-story (716) Food & Sport that features over 70 televisions, including a 38-foot tall screen for the big games.

Our waterfront is also home to America’s largest inland Naval park, the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park. The Erie Basin Marina features an observation tower with breathtaking views of Buffalo and Canada. The historic Buffalo Lighthouse welcomes you to the Buffalo River. And the nearby Outer Harbor features miles of bike trails and lakefront parks. If you like fishing, the bass, salmon and trout are biting throughout our inner and outer harbors. Rent a kayak or waterbike or take a cruise aboard the Queen City Ferry, the Spirit of Buffalo or Buffalo Harbor Cruises to see it all!

What can a museum be? It can be a place where learning feels like playing—where “do not touch” becomes “try it out” —and where there’s always a reason to come back for more!

Explore & More has built an environment for creative play and learning that’s as one-of-a-kind as every child who walks through the doors. They do everything in their playful power to give children a chance to dream, imagine, invent and do, in childhood and far beyond.

Learning often starts at home and school. It thrives here at Explore & More—a “third place” in the world for children and families to play and learn together.

An interesting, guided historical tour through America’s past. You will explore the historic Erie Canal Locks 67-71 constructed in 1838, view ruins from an early industrial age, and your guide will rock in the mid-1800’s, viewing stalactites, flowstone and other geological formations. You will also see artifacts left behind by the men who build the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal. Then you will ride in an underground boat. Visitors are awestruck as they take a ride that has been described as both “peaceful and eerie” as the boat glides through lifeless waters, illuminated only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.
