Why

Buffalo, NY is known pretty much for the U.S. city you fly into to get to Niagara Falls. So people typically stay very close to the Falls, but don’t really do much in or go to Buffalo itself. Well, the next time you head this way, change that. In case you did not know, its the home of Buffalo Wings!

Where To Stay

I actually stayed at the airport as I had an early flight and did not want to bother with driving back from the city into the airport really early. But you should stay in the city for the best experience. The major hotel chains are adequately represented in Buffalo.

Where To Eat

The main thing to do here is eat Buffalo Wings at the Anchor Bar. Of course there are other places to eat as well. There’s even a Tim Horton’s due to the close proximity of Buffalo to Canada.
