Hamburg Small Town Living

Enjoy the slower pace

Maybe it’s the Lake Erie breezes, or the rolling countryside, or the small-town spirit of a village like Hamburg. In Buffalo’s Southtowns, life seems to slow down a bit, which has provided an enduring appeal to visitors. That charm is on full display in the Hamburg Downtown Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 and features walkable streets, fine dining, boutiques and a decades-old neighborhood ice cream parlor and movie theater. Hamburg is also home to Woodlawn Beach State Park, an expansive stretch of white sand that’s the perfect place to chill on a beautiful Buffalo summer day.
