Think about Buffalo for a moment. Are you thinking about snow and rust? Then your impression of our city needs an upgrade, with Visit Buffalo Niagara. It’s time for you to meet the Unexpected Buffalo. If you’ve been here before, we’re the same city you know and love with a rekindled sense of innovation not seen since our industrial heyday. If you’re a first-time visitor, be prepared for an unexpected experience featuring brand new hotels, masterworks of modern art, architectural landmarks, inventive restaurants, trendy craft breweries and cocktail bars, exciting tours and our booming waterfront. There’s a reason the New York Times ranked Buffalo one of the 52 Places to Go in 2018.
Buffalo is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation, and its proud history and incredible architectural legacy weave their way into every aspect of the visitor experience. Visitors sleep in hotels that were former mansions and an insane asylum, tour the largest home ever designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in its restored grandeur, rock climb, zipline and drink craft beer among the ruins of grain silos and enjoy live performances in reclaimed movie palaces, churches and historic social clubs.
The revitalization throughout Buffalo is real and others are beginning to take notice. We’re embracing our historic architecture and adapting it with modern comforts, we’re breaking the norms of contemporary cuisine by blending it with our blue-collar favorites and pioneering new ways to enjoy our place on the Great Lakes. We’ve been hard at work during this renaissance and now we’re ready for company. Come see what we’ve done with the place!
