Looking for the allure of an old-fashioned Main Street? Look no further than the village of Williamsville, situated northeast of the city of Buffalo. Williamsville has come a long way from its historic roots, hosting a bevy of boutiques, cafes, gift shops and restaurants.
Here are five places that should be part of your Williamsville experience:
They’ve been dressing local ladies in designer duds for years now. Forget those typical souvenirs you pick up on vacation and spend your money on jazzing up your wardrobe back home. Need some fashionable advice? They have personal shoppers on staff ready to assist.
Pampering should be a part of any vacation, right? Right! Let the stresses of travel be massaged away as you spend the afternoon relaxing at this neighborhood gem. Their Signature Facial is a customer favorite!
Shopping – check.
Spa – check.
Dessert – Yes, by paying a visit to one of the sweetest shops on Main Street, DiCamillo Bakery. Opening nearly a century ago, DiCamillo’s is still cranking out tasty treats and delicious Italian goodies today. With pizzas and sandwiches on the menu as well, consider this a light lunch stop as you wind your way throughout Williamsville.
I’m pretty sure when you think of waterfalls in the Buffalo Niagara region, Niagara Falls is at the top of that list. But water meanders its way throughout Western New York, including Glen Falls. Park the car, walk around and take in this scenic beauty.
The 200 year history of the village of Williamsville is probably most evident inside the Eagle House restaurant. Dating back to 1827, the Eagle House served as an old stagecoach stop. Today it’s serving up leisurely lunches on their covered patio and cozy dinners next to their fireplace. Bon appetit!
