Why Visit Buffalo
While its reputation as a sports-centric town is legendary, Buffalo is much more than chicken wings and football. Its robust craft beer scene and historic buildings from A-list architects would make other towns weep with jealousy. When you visit Buffalo, you’ll be surprised at just how much it offers.
When to Visit Buffalo
The locals are a hearty lot that won’t allow snow to cramp their style at all. They jump on ice bikes (specially designed to ride on the frozen canals) and go cross-country skiing along the lake. In summer, the city is in full swing with a host of festivals centered on everything from chicken wings to music and cars.
Lake-effect blizzards consistently earn Buffalo its reputation as one of the snowiest cities in the U.S. Meanwhile, in the summer, the lake effect has a more positive influence. Summers can reach up into the 80s and 90s Fahrenheit, but a breeze off Lake Erie makes even sweltering days manageable.
