Destination guide

Buffalo is about more than the spicy wings

Buffalo is known the world over for a particular tasty treat: sticky, spicy, scarlet-hued Buffalo wings. But there’s far more to discover around these parts. Perched on Lake Erie, this city in upstate New York is a popular base for visiting the thunderous, misty majesty of Niagara Falls – the iconic waterfalls lie just to the north of Buffalo, drawing in romantic couples and photo-snapping families alike. Buffalo vacation rentals, which range from smart apartments to spacious houses, will also allow you to explore the various sights of Buffalo itself, including the buzzing Canalside district and the hulking World War 2 vessels docked there.

Things to do

Art and nature in Buffalo

Never mind New York City – Buffalo has plenty of artistic riches to discover at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. As well as showcasing key works by the likes of Gauguin, Renoir, Picasso, and Kahlo, it’s particularly notable for its collection of great American masterpieces, from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art. Then there’s the Buffalo Museum of Science, where you can step into a wind chamber, create your own snowflakes, and walk with dinosaurs or blast off into space in the 3D cinema. Afterwards, relax amid the fragrant orchids of the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens.


Sunny vacations in Buffalo

Things can get snowy around these parts in winter, and most visitors will want to book Buffalo vacation rentals around the spring and summer months. While temperatures soar during June, July, and August, the proximity of the lake, and the cooling breeze over the vast body of water, helps keep things comfortable as you explore Buffalo’s streets and scenic areas.

Natural features

Hitting the river in Buffalo

Lake Erie isn’t the only watery focal point in this part of New York state.
