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 Buffalo lighthouse is located at the end of a very nice waterfront park by lake Erie. The lighthouse is accessible for free (pedestrian entrance is on the right of the Coast Guard base vehicules entrance). There are free street parking. The waterfront park is really nice to walk or bike and spend some time relaxing by the water of... More

This was a sort of let down as compared to other lights I have seen. It was difficult to get near enough to get a photograph, and pretty tough to find actually. But it is one more light I have seen, and it was interesting reading about it and then seeing it. There isn't really any parking, but the local... More

I was able to see 6 lighthouses in the Niagara-on-the-lakes area. Small, but added to my list of lighthouses viewed.
