Buffalo

Queen City

The most populous city in the state after New York, Buffalo serves as the gateway to Niagara Falls and Canada for many travelers. Known in the modern world as the city that created the food trend of buffalo wings, the metropolis is rebuilding its image. One hundred years ago it was a thriving manufacturing mecca; today citizens are revitalizing the old Hydraulics neighborhood into an up-and-coming spot dominated by taste and flair, where food trucks pull up once a week. The city is a melting pot of cultures that have all made their mark, especially with food. Located along Lake Erie and with two rivers running through it, the city also has embraced its waterways for recreation--rowing clubs are forming and new parks line the rivers. Buffalo is in New York (NY). Take stress off the schedule by using our United States day trip planning site .
