Not far from the raging waters of Niagara Falls, Buffalo is New York’s second-largest city, and is home to architectural wonders––and is the birthplace of one of America’s favorite finger foods. There truly is something for everyone in Buffalo.
The hotels and buildings in the city really are something to behold: there are six incredible Frank Lloyd Wright residences in the surrounding area, and historic buildings in Oakland Palace and Little Summer Street. At 641 Delaware Avenue, you can explore the mansion where President Teddy Roosevelt was sworn into office––and Louis Henry Sullivan’s Prudential Building downtown is one of the tallest structures in the city.
Art aficionados can take in masterpieces by artists as revered as Picasso and Van Gogh at the Albright–Knox Gallery; just across the street, the Burchfield-Penney Art Center has stunning watercolors by Charles Burchfield on display.
There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and accommodations in Buffalo, as well; browse the locally produced artisan goods at Elmwood Village, or unearth antique deals and more in the nearby Allentown District.
On the way back to your Buffalo hotel, stop in at the famous Anchor Bar, where the beloved Buffalo wings were invented over forty years ago.
