Buffalo is the second-biggest city in New York State, located on Lake Erie and on the border to Canada. Although it boasts many similarities with its big brother, Buffalo also offers certain traits NYC cannot emulate. With a storied history and vibrant cultural scene fuelled by its large population of students, Buffalo holidays balance a city of skyscrapers, vast green spaces, spectacular ethnic food and proud locals, all on nature's doorstep.
While Buffalo enjoys balmy summers and beautiful autumn colours, the city also experiences long, cold winters. However, rather than deterring holidaymakers, this actually makes winter arguably the best time for Buffalo holidays, because the city's layout, culture and lifestyle are designed to thrive in winter, making it a great time to venture into Buffalo's dozens of quality museums and galleries (especially the Albright-Knox, which is a national giant of contemporary art) that lend Buffalo its reputation as a cultural hotspot. There are hundreds of easy transport options for Buffalo holidays, with direct flights from Europe, as well as overland connections to nearby major cities including New York, Toronto and Boston. Transport within Buffalo is also stress-free: hiring a car is easy and convenient, while the beloved metro trains around Buffalo are both efficient and iconic.
On top of the galleries and museums hinted at above, Buffalo holidays also allow visitors to experience the city's history through its architecture, with dozens of relics of its industrial past, and the Allentown Historical District, which is the best place to imagine elegant 19th-century Buffalo. Buffalo is often recognised as one the USA's most liveable cities, and strolling around the expansive Delaware Park or feasting on the city's unique food soon reveals why. Those wanting a brief escape from the city should make the trip to Niagara Falls is an unmatched feat of nature and less than an hour from Buffalo.
