As a Brit doing a football tour (three games in eleven days), I came in to Buffalo by train and left the same way. This meant that I had intended - quite innocently - to take public transport out to the game from my hotel in the centre of the city. Upon arrival, I made enquiries at the tourist office... More

We had seats near the end zone in the family section. They were comfortable and we were able to see all the action.

I realize I may be a bit bias as a die hard Buffalo Bills fan but I love Ralph Wilson Stadium or what is now known as New Era field (The Cap). It has a homey feel and the colors upon entering the field are tremendous. Take a moment to appreciate the vividness when you're walking through the tunnel into... More

Having a parking pass from a season ticket holder & being told our lot was full when there were spots left, did not go over well at all. As I have medical issues, it was painful to walk a good 2 blocks of incline just to get to the back of the stadium...not to mention it being nearly 90 degrees...we... More

Security was excellent and quick to keep the lines moving. Food was good though expensive, $5 for a bottled water and it was a very hot day. The fan experience is excellent

Football preseason is here and we are at the Ralph soon to be NewEra Cap stadium. I hope we have a new stadium by the time the lease runs out.

NFL is not complete until you can go to your teams home field and experience the game live. What a experience, so glad I was able to go

Good and bad on this visit Good - Tailgating, fans,parking and views. Bad - Metal bleacher seating, stadium in the middle of no where and a public address system that is indecipherable. I have been to half of the stadiums in the NFL and I honestly had a good time at Ralph Wilson stadium. The fact that it is old... More

We had season tix for years until the kids got involved in sports and just had too many conflicts with Travel hockey so we gave them up. We still like to go to a couple games a year. It is still affordable but my fear is if we build a new stadium it will cost too much to go to... More

My wife and I are have tickets for the Bills/Colts game in Sept. It will be our first NFL game on only our second visit to the US. We have no previous experience of what to expect when we get to either the City of Buffalo and the stadium itself for the game. I have read that the locals are extremely friendly and are only to pleased to help visitors and lost souls like ourselves and i have a number of questions that i could do with help and advice on. We are flying in to Buffalo Niagara Int. arriving at about 8am and are staying at the Best Western on the Avenue for the one night, flying out on the Monday evening.

So any advice on the following would be a great help.

Firstly how to get from the airport to the hotel, we are more than happy to use public transport.

Secondly how do we get from the hotel to the Stadium, again public transport is fine with us unless advised not to do so.

What time does anyone advise us to get to the stadium, our seat numbers are Section 316, Row 30, if that's of any bearing.

I have read that Buffalo Bills tailgating is possibly the best in the NFL. What can we do about joining in, what time does it start, where do we go, who do we see, we don't mind paying our way.

After the game what does everyone do, where do we go to, hopefully celebrate the win or to drown our sorrows in defeat, i am a Manchester City FC season ticket holder, thats a football (soccer) team in the UK and we have our own after match routine.

Any recommendations on where in Buffalo to go on the Sunday night. We are both 51yo, so nothing too young. Live music or a lively bar or two downtown would suit. It is Buffalo, so who serves up the best Buffalo wings and should we be booking in advance. Best place near the hotel for a night cap, dont like hotel bars really.

We have all day Monday to go up to the Falls. Again any advice on exactly where to go and how to get there, again public transport is fine by us. Places for breakfast, lunch and we have time for dinner before our flight back to NYC late evening, suggestions are more than welcome.

I am sure the people of Buffalo will be able to help us make the most of our very short stay in your city and all advice, information and suggestions will be catalogued and greatly appreciated. GO BILLS.
