VisitorsWelcome to Buffalo, N.Y., a vibrant city filled with things to do and discover!
If you haven’t seen Buffalo lately, you haven’t seen Buffalo. This classic American city is undergoing a 21st century renaissance that includes over $1 billion in redevelopment, a revitalized waterfront and neighborhoods, burgeoning craft beer scene and new attractions, restaurants and hotels. That’s in addition to the classic American architecture (including several Frank Lloyd Wright buildings), world-renowned art scene and eponymous chicken wings that have always put our city on the map.
Enjoy art and entertainment? Spend the morning with Andy Warhol at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the afternoon with a Broadway show at Shea’s Performing Arts Center and the evening with the Grammy Award-winning Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
Looking for something more casual? Catch a Bills, Sabres or Bisons game. Go shopping in trendy Elmwood Village. Take in the scene at Canalside or Larkin Square. Or check out Niagara Falls. (Yes, THAT Niagara Falls!)
History buff? Relive where President Theodore Roosevelt took the oath of office. Step on board a river cruise into the city’s industrial past. Or discover the formative years of an American television icon at the Buffalo History Museum.
From family fun, festivals and events to restaurants, nature, recreation and nightlife you’ll have plenty to choose from in Buffalo Niagara. Our itineraries will help you hit the high points, Buffalo wings (invented at the city’s Anchor Bar) and all!

Frank Lloyd Wright's Graycliff: Standard Tours
Situated on a 70 foot cliff overlooking Lake Erie, the two-story, 6,500 square foot house represents a transitional point from Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style to his later concrete designs that found their ultimate expression at the justly-famous Fallingwater.
The world has been beating a path to the Buffalo Niagara region since shortly after Father Louis Hennepin became the first European to describe the prodigious cadence of water that is the mighty Falls in 1678.
