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!

A National Historic Landmark, the E. M. Cotter, is the oldest active fireboat in the world. It was built in Elizabeth, New Jersey and arrived in Buffalo November 6, 1900. Built and commissioned during an era when Buffalo’s waterfront and port were booming, the Cotter has been an invaluable asset of fire protection for the numerous warehouses, grain elevators and other facilities that line Buffalo’s shores. After 105 years the Cotter continues serving the citizens and properties of Greater Buffalo, more as a floating museum, visiting ports on Lakes Erie and Ontario. PLEASE NOTE: Tours of the boat are by appointment only, and must be pre-arranged.

Founded in 1859, Concordia is the final resting place for over 21,000 residents of Western New York. There are over 500 war veterans, 150 of whom are Civil War Soldiers, including members of the famous Wiedrich’s Battalion First Light Infantry. Medal of Honor recipient John McHugh is also laid to rest at Concordia)

With over 15 acres, Concordia Cemetery has long been part of Western New York’s history. In 2008, it was added to the New York State Register of Historic Sites and the National Register of Historic Places, cited as a significant historic property because of its representation of Buffalo’s early German immigrant population and its collection of grave monuments of the period. It originally was created to be the burial ground shared by three German evangelical churches. The term “Concordia” means harmony and refers to the coming-together of the three churches.

Concordia is cared for by volunteers. Please call before visiting for additional information.

As one of the first deliberately designed and professionally landscaped rural cemeteries in the United States, Forest Lawn’s first interment took place in 1850. Today there are 162,000+ permanent residents in this 269-acre, not-for-profit cemetery serving all faiths. Listed on the State and National Registries of Historic Places, Forest Lawn is also at the heart of Western New York’s cultural tourism renaissance. Each year, it plays host to thousands of visitors who come to enjoy all that Forest Lawn has to offer: unmatched natural beauty – hills, valleys, lakes and streams; sculptural masterpieces (including the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Blue Sky Mausoleum); living history.

Most importantly, the stories of those who now rest in peace under Forest Lawn’s care – from a U.S. President and foreign royalty, to captains of industry, artists, inventors, veterans from every U.S. conflict since the Revolutionary War and people like us who have quietly built the community that we and our families enjoy — each has a story to be told through the expansive archives and genealogical resources of the Margaret L. Wendt Archive and Resource Center and through Forest Lawn’s award-winning tours, concerts, lectures and special events.

Experience that era by tasting food cooked 19th century-style over an open flame, then fire a musket yourself!

The first thing you’ll notice as you drive through the tiny hamlet of Griffins Mills is how charming this “suburb” of East Aurora is. Two hundred years ago, that was not the case – this bustling community had everything one would need to live, work and play. All that remains today is the Griffins Mills Presbyterian Church. To honor its past, the church has become active in the Civil War reenactment movement and has played host to several encampments as well as Underground Railroad tours.

From architects Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler, the Guaranty Building was built between 1895-1896. Louis Sullivan’s most mature skyscraper, its terra cotta facade and clean vertical lines are nothing short of breathtaking.

In 2017, Hodgson Russ completed a project to celebrate the rich history of the Guaranty Building and dedicated it as a gift to the community. This museum-quality Guaranty Interpretative Center provides clients, guests from around the world, and architectural scholars and devotees the background on the iconic structure and its place in modern architecture.

When the Palace Theatre opened on July 18, 1925, Lock City Theater Company President A. Edmund Lee told a capacity crowd that it was “built not for the aristocracy, but for all the people” and that they had successfully “extended Broadway into Lockport and to the people of Niagara.” Those statements ring true to this day, as the Palace shines like a beacon for the arts and entertainment that are so vital to our community — and to our collective lives.

[description] =>

Lafayette Square (formerly Court House Park or Courthouse Square) is a park in the center of downtown Buffalo, Erie County, New York, United States that hosts a Civil War monument. The block, which was once square, is lined by many of the city’s tallest buildings. The square was named for General Lafayette, who visited Buffalo in 1825.

The square was part of the original urban plan for the city as laid out by Joseph Ellicott in 1804. Its eastern edge has long been defined by important civic structures; first, the Erie County Courthouse, followed by the original Buffalo & Erie County Public Library. Presidential history was made in Lafayette Square when former United States President Martin Van Buren received the Free Soil Party nomination for the 1848 election. President-elect Abraham Lincoln also spoke at the square.

Today, the square offers a clear view of Buffalo City Hall, an Art Deco building three blocks to the west. A granite Civil War monument, titled Soldiers and Sailors, gives a strong vertical and ceremonial definition to the space. Conceived by Mrs. Horatio Seymour, the monument’s dedication ceremony was attended by Grover Cleveland and other prominent figures

It serves as a collection of indoor shops and office space and is the best surviving example of such a retail complex within the city. The Market Arcade re-opened in 1995 after a $10 million renovation featuring terra cotta, Corinthian columns and elaborate ornamentation. It is a stunning example of architecture in Downtown Buffalo. Today it features a number of local independently owned retailers, a gym, a barber shop, art galleries, food hall and more.

[description] =>

Niagara Square is a public square located at the intersections of Delaware Avenue, Court Street, Genesee Street, and Niagara Street in Buffalo, New York. It is the central hub of Joseph Ellicott’s original radial street pattern that he designed in 1804 for the then village of New Amsterdam. It continues to be the nexus of downtown Buffalo.

Its origins date back to the conclusion of the French and Indian War in 1763, which ended French domination of the Niagara Frontier and marked the advent of permanent settlement of the area. This trend increased after the Revolution, and in 1804 Joseph Ellicott (1760–1826) mapped a town on the banks of Lake Erie at the mouth of the Buffalo Creek. The site of the city was part of the vast land holdings of the Holland Land Company, a Dutch firm that had purchased most of western New York. Ellicott, who was the local Holland Land Company agent, had earlier in his career helped his brother Andrew survey Pierre L’Enfant’s plan for the new capital at Washington.

Within the center of the modern square is a large monument commemorating the assassination of President McKinley, who was assassinated in Buffalo during the Pan-American Exposition of 1901.

Perhaps the largest 5 & 10 in the world, Vidler’s is much more than a store – they’re shopping entertainment at its best! Relax and enjoy a trip back in time as you stroll through their amazing five and dime! Owned and operated by the Vidler family since opening in 1930, the third generation now manages the store on a daily basis.

It’s hard to describe, but impossible to forget with over 75,000 different items spread out over 2 floors in four connected buildings. You can spend hours wandering through the store and seeing the counters and shelves overflowing with the practical, unique, whimsical and sometimes, stuff you (and we) have never even seen before!

The true Vidler’s shopping experience is not just their incredible selection of merchandise, but the historic buildings, wooden floors, old-fashioned candy counter, 10¢ popcorn machine and nostalgic atmosphere that can’t be duplicated. Located on East Aurora’s historic upper Main Street, there are numerous restaurants and other local attractions within easy walking distance from our store.
