You can see the entire Buffalo Harbor and Lake Erie/Niagara River. You can take the stairs which is quite tiring or the elevator. It's a good place to take out of town guests... read more

The lighthouse is located next to a bird preserve which was such a pleasant walk. The lighthouse is a great bit of history and worth the trip if you are in the area

Saw the lighthouse from the harbor but no sense in walking/driving over to see it up close as it was chained shut. Our boat captain said it is open for tours only a couple of days a year ... and the day we were there wasn't it. Shame.

If you want to escape the pier crowds and still enjoy the fabulous waterfront and Buffalo skyline-thus lighthouse is the place to go!

From the Buffalo Skyway, (NY Highway 5), look for the 'Buffalo Outer Harbor Drive' exit signs from the North or South. At the ramp's end at the stop signs, go West a short distance to Fuhrman Blvd North and turn right at the roundabout. Go a little over a mile to the Coast Guard Station, you will turn around at...

You can see the entire Buffalo Harbor and Lake Erie/Niagara River. You can take the stairs which is quite tiring or the elevator. It's a good place to take out of town guests. After see this spectacular view you can enjoy yourself on the Waterfront.

I come here every so often to take photos around. It's a nice place to visit and to see. But not much to it. Just a lighthouse is all.

My husband has never seen a lighthouse so this was on his "must do" list during a recent trip to the area. After parking and walking for a few minutes, it started sprinkling. We thought maybe it was spray from the lake but by the time we were halfway to the lighthouse it was an outright downpour. We were determined... More

You take the little service road to the Coast Guard gates, park on the street (free) and take the little walkway path.....This is a brief but scenic path past the harbor ant toward Lake Erie. The lighthouse is up a slight hill but, it has thin ramped paths in the stones. There is also an anchor, a buoy, the old... More

The waterfront park is really nice to walk or bike and spend some time relaxing by the water of... More
