Every summer we take a sail on the miss Buffalo for a boat ride, if you just take a walk around the marina you'll find so much peace and tranquility in abundance. Dont miss the jewel in the Queen city crown.

Normally I don't climb the observation deck when visiting Erie Basin Marina even though there are under a hundred stairs. I find the concrete unattractive and there is a dank feeling.

The Marina is one of Buffalo's special gems. There are always boats coming and going. The flowers are lovely and well cared for. Parking is rarely a problem. While it's lovely for a stroll along the waterfront at any time, it especially comes into its own at sunset. The views across the water are outstanding, usually with rich color. It's... More

My friend and I discovered the marina while aimlessly driving around Downtown Buffalo. It definitely was an incredible find! We entered the marina and were both amazed by the beautiful lakeside views. We even saw colorful gardens situated along the waters. There are no parking fees, which is unheard-of to us New York City natives. Before exploring the marina, my... More

After eating at The Hatch Restaurant located at this Waterfront Marina, we took a stroll and was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful gardens planted along the sidewalks. I then recognized the flowers; the flowers were supplied by Ball Horticultural Co and PanAmerican Seed co, the company I work for! How lovely to see these flowers in a natural setting and... More

The gardens at the Erie Basin Marina are beautiful. The plants have labels on them so you can research ones that you like. The marina is connected to the Naval Park and Canalside. The Hatch is a great casual restaurant to eat at.

We went to watch the regatta. Inspiring view. We walked up into the tower and that was a breath taking view.

Brought out the chairs and a glass of wine and watched the sunset. Very relaxing and fun. It can get windy so bring a blanket.

Great area to relax with some fabulous street food while running from seagulls. That's not a negative. I wanted the whole outdoor experience, and I got it at the Marina.
