Retrace the first steps Theodore Roosevelt took as president. Hear musket fire in an 18th century fort and learn how early European settlers here lived. Visit the only metal kazoo factory in the world or the home of a former carousel factory. Walk inside the room made entirely of mirrors (even the table and chairs!) at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. Or stroll among thousands of floral wonders in the turn-of-the-century Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. Buffalo’s role as a leading American city in the 19th and early 20th centuries yielded a treasure trove of cultural and historical attractions that are perfect for a family-friendly getaway!
