This is the best street to walk in Buffalo. I was a little disappointed cause it's rather long to walk and there was not as many shops as I tought it would have. Some areas are shabby and you don't always feel safe depending on what part of the street you are. On the plus side, even if it's really... More

The Elmwood Village area is a trendy, funky place to visit when in Buffalo. Lots of great small, independent shops - from clothing, bakeries, co-op supermarket and much more. People are very friendly and welcoming. There are also many great restaurants - you will not leave the area hungry!! Put your walking shoes/sandals on and get going!!

Buffalo's Elmwood Village and the surrounding neighborhood is a delight. Lots of restaurants, bars and a very relaxed and inviting atmosphere. A must-see for anyone travelling to Buffalo.

Get away from the malls and their chain stores, and shop here. Children's and craft shops abound. Park on Elmwood a little to the north or south of the main strip, and you're there for free for two hours, which is probably as much time as you'd want to spend.

I love spending time in Elmwood Village. There is a great vibe going on, and an awesome variety of shops, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, etc. There are always people walking around, whether it is spring, summer, winter, or fall.The only congestion in the experience can be trying to find parking, so just park a block or 2 away from the...

There may be some interesting shops, etc. along this route but it's not pedestrian friendly unless you feel like walking the very looong street (2+ miles??). So many areas are rather shabby with numerous houses in need of repair. The only highlight is Pano's restaurant at 1081 Elmwood Ave (north end). The food was terrific, and if the weather's good,...

...if it weren't for the snow, of course. Lexington co-op offers world cuisine and fair trade coffee daily, and I picked up a fresh bad l plant and homemade soap for a friend as a hostess gift. The boutique shopping could have emptied my bank account, given the plethora of beautiful artistry. And I was walking distance from everywhere I... More
