Engaging Elmwood

Later focus of regeneration for Buffalo, this eclectic, arty town-house neighborhood has a safe and slightly bohemian feel with super bars and restaurants

This is a very small area on the street of Elmwood. I looks fun but on a Sunday many places were closed so we were disappointed that we did not get to explore more!

Charming place to walk and shop. Drive a little further toward downtown to Elmwood and North and park near Allen St. to see the antique stores on Elmwood and the shops on Allen St.

Our B & B was on Elmood, and we found that it was with easy walking distance of the Albright-Knox Gallery. Between the two there are lots of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. We walked along some of the side streets and saw some very attractive, large homes. Spend some time here.

Walking up and down Elmwood Avenue and you discover loads of restaurants, bars, and otherwise interesting businesses. We did not have a lot of time to explore but what we did was well worth the time. Wear comfy shoes as the blocks stretch on for a while.
