Buffalo’s arts and culture scene includes one of America’s finest collections of modern and contemporary art at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Grammy Award-winning Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, and some two dozen theater companies, anchored by the magnificent Shea’s Performing Arts Center.
You’ll also discover Buffalo’s incredible history of the Underground Railroad, the Erie Canal, the inauguration of Teddy Roosevelt and much more. And Buffalo features world-class architecture by masters like Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan and H.H. Richardson, as well as a system of parks and parkways by America’s greatest landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted.
Year round, Buffalo is packed with events and festivals, like the National Buffalo Wing Festival, the Taste of Buffalo, the Allentown Art Festival, the Juneteenth Festival and the National Garden Festival.
If you’re into sports, you’ll find the Bills, Sabres, AAA baseball’s Bisons, incredible fishing and great watersports. And with attractions like the Buffalo Zoo and the Buffalo Museum of Science, there is plenty for families to do.
When it comes to food, we're justifiably proud of our chicken wings (and no trip to Buffalo is complete without a stop at the Anchor Bar), but we also have hundreds of independently-owned restaurants, delicious local specialties and vibrant farmers markets to tempt your taste buds.
We hope you have a wonderful time as you explore our city! And to make sure you stay up-to-date on all the fun things to do in Buffalo, sign up for our e-newsletter.

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.
