To say you and your friends are “outdoorsy” would be an understatement. It’s more like you’re programmed for adventure and exploration—the more exciting, the better. You didn’t come all the way from Canada to sit still! So get ready to give your Fitbits® a workout, because here’s what we have in store for you.
You and your fellow femmes are going to need some serious fuel for the active days ahead. Point your sneakers to Elmwood Village for a meal at one of their charming cafes. Hit the streets in search of a new pair of yoga pants or some sporty kicks at the neighborhood boutiques. Try a taste of Buffalo’s signature sponge candy from Watson’s or Fowler’s. Plan a light lunch at Savor or La Patisserie at the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute!
When it’s time to get down to business. Head out to Canalside to challenge your friends to a race on a water bike in the summer or an ice bike in the winter! Both will give you a new thrill to add to your “been there, done that, loved every minute of it” list.
If you’ve had one piece of sponge candy too many, burn it off at the Tifft Nature Preserve, where you can explore miles of trails. Or head to Chestnut Ridge Park and hike your way to the eternal flame. Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, head over to Toutant for a Southern-style supper that’ll knock your socks off. Give the biscuits a try and you won’t be disappointed if the shrimp and grits or fried chicken find their way into your toned tummy. If you’re looking for fare more on the lighter side, try the sushi at SeaBar or authentic tacos at Lloyd Taco Factory.
And it would be a shame to come all the way across the bridge without having an unforgettable Niagara Falls adventure. See the sights at Niagara Falls State Park! Remember to bring your camera because the vistas are breathtaking and the sounds of the white water below will lull you into a state of bliss.
After you see the Falls, it’s time to take the adrenaline up a notch. Ride the Niagara River’s Class V rapids and set your heart racing on a jet boat from Niagara Jet Adventures. Hover above the Falls on a heart-pounding Rainbow Air Helicopter Tour. Or keep your heart thumping by hitting the park’s scenic trails with a set of wheels from Niagara Bike Rentals.
Now that you’ve worked up a mighty hunger, visit The Silo restaurant and tackle one of their famous Haystack sandwiches. Afterward, enjoy a spot of wine and the company of good friends at Becker Farms & Vizcarra Vineyards on the Niagara Wine Trail, USA.
Here’s to a girlfriend getaway filled with thrills, fun and bonding in Buffalo Niagara!
