A MUST-TO-DO/SEE for a Day in Buffalo/Niagara Falls

Good day!

I take the night bus from Washington DC that would arrive in Buffalo at around 7:00am and on the same day at 9:30pm i will take the bus going to New York...

hopefully you could help me with my itinerary for a day in Buffalo/Niagara Falls and must-to-do/see that I should not miss... and if you could give a good timing for the bus/transportation going to these places without missing the 9:30pm bus

thank you for the help...

best regards,

Hello again, The first thing you should check out is the NFTA schedule for public transportation to and from Niagara Falls. http://metro.nfta.com/Routes/Routes.aspx

In Buffalo:

1) I always recommend a trip to Buffalo City Hall. There is a FREE tour from noon - 1:00pm that meets in the lobby. If you can't make the tour, you can always ride the elevator up to the top (25th) floor and walk up the steps to the observation deck to see Lake Erie, Buffalo River, Niagara River, Canada, and all around the City of Buffalo. On a clear day, you can see the mist from Niagara Falls. Bring a camera.

2) If you have time, from 10:30-12:00 (on Thursday & Friday) there is a tour of the Buffalo River on a ferry boat: preservationbuffaloniagara.org/buffalo-tours…

3) In any case, I recommend a look at the waterfront. You can take the Metro Rail train on Main Street which is FREE as long as you stay above ground (when it goes underground you need a ticket). The train ends at the Erie Canal Harbor: http://metro.nfta.com/Routes/ttpdf/45.pdf

4) If you are interested in seeing large war ships, you can check out the Buffalo & Erie County Naval and Military Park on the waterfront: http://www.buffalonavalpark.org/index.html

In Niagara Falls,

1) Take a ride on the Maid of the Mist - http://www.maidofthemist.com/en/

2) Take a walk on the Cave of the Winds (not an actual cave) right next the Falls - niagarafallsstatepark.com/cave-of-the-winds.…

You can visit the Niagara Falls NY page here on TripAdvisor for more ideas of what to do in Niagara Falls NY.
