The great outdoors can be found within the city limits. Buffalo’s Wilkeson Pointe, along Buffalo’s Outer Harbor is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city without getting too far off the grid. A short drive over the Skyway or accessible by bike via the Queen City Bike Ferry, connecting Canalside to the Outer Harbor, this natural landscape along the Lake Erie shoreline offers visitors tons of opportunities to explore and unwind on the waterfront.
Crack a beer and lounge in a comfy Adirondack chair or hammock at Wilkeson’s beachside beer garden, rent a bike and cruise the winding bike paths that connect Wilkeson Pointe to the 1833 Buffalo Lighthouse and further points along the Outer Harbor like Gallagher Beach, Tifft Nature Preserve and the Small Boat Harbor. Assemble your whole squad for pickup games of beach volleyball, rent a kayak, or get fit with a massive list of free wellness classes complete with yoga, pilates and more.
Whatever you choose to do, just be sure to get to the top of the spiraling hill and under the three spinning wind sculptures for the perfect vantage point of Buffalo’s famous sunsets. Magnifique!
