I go to the marina a few times a year and always marvel at the view.You never know what will be sailing by. The last time it was a pirate ship to the delight of the kids in our group. The observation tower is awesome.Please be advised it is three flights up with no elevator but a must if you... More

It was nice to see a variety of flowers along with the names of the flowers so you could go to a nursery to buy. Generates lots of ideas for next year.

We went primarily for the gardens which were nice but not as extensive as we might have expected - but then again they are free to look at. What we enjoyed most was just strolling along the harbor on a beautiful Summer Sunday. There are fascinating boats in the marina and the lighthouse is visible just across the channel. It... More

We go here almost everyday during the summer months. We bring chairs and seat on the grass looking out at the water, after work, prior to picking up the kids- very peaceful. Then on the weekends we bring the kids for ice cream from The Hatch-Perry's YUMMY!!!

If walks around the waterfront and flowers are your "thing", than this is a place that needs to be seen ! The Buffalo waterfront is growing and improving all the time. When entering the Erie Basin Marina you will drive past some of the nicest award winning rose gardens anywhere. Park here and start your walk through the gardens. Then... More

Buffalo is really trying to spruce up its waterfront. Every time I have been there lately I see progress. A nice place to walk along the water, have a drink or snack and watch boats.

If you love gardening, you will enjoy this garden. It's not huge, but it is lovely and well maintained. Best of all, as a test garden, you can see the up and coming new plants you'll want to be on the lookout for. The garden features roses, perennials and annuals. It is situated right on the waterfront and next to... More

Nothing better than FREE and this is it! Always a fun place to people watch, throw out a blanket and read or eat a picnic lunch. Pick up a ticket for the Miss Buffalo boat cruise or head down to the 'end of the road' and climb the stairs atop the Lookout Tower; beautiful during a sunset and during the... More

Each trip to Buffalo, you must make the short drive down to the new and updated Waterfront. Near the large ships you must stop by the last remaining lock of the Eire Canal. All the other Buffalo locks have been buried in the construction of the I 90 New York Thruway. The big ships are interesting but the prize viewing... More
