In the BUF

They come from across the United States and Canada. From the four corners of the globe. From as near as Burlington, Ontario and as far away as Beijing. They are young families, couples without kids, ex-pats, cultural tourists, festival lovers and Bills fans. Some travel in groups and others prefer going solo. In a world of travel options, they all found their way to Buffalo. Here are their stories.
