Love the Elmwood Village and the highlight is the Elmwood Art Festival at the end of August. The village has lots of charm. Love the unique shops that are privately owned. Great eateries as well.

Some nice shops and places to eat, but the parking is horrible. Not worth going there because of that

Love all this area has to offer. I opened my wallet more thanks than expected in all the unique shops. There is something for everyone. The local toy store was fantastic, nice gift wrapping and unique choices. stopped for coffee and a treat nearby as well.

There is so many neat shops to visit and too many restaurants to mention. I love just walking down and hitting many of them. Very nice part of Buffalo.

this is a nifty little area of buffalo, heavily-trafficked, particularly in the late afternoon, one stem in the Olmsted Park design with attractive walking parks, a white variety of restaurants and bistros, some chain, some local, and a nice assortment of shops, a marvelous hang-out at holiday time

One of many local shopping areas in Buffalo. Many great restaurants, stores and services. Several national names however many more locally owned and operated shops. Easy on and off street parking. Frequented by locals and visitors.

DId some shoping in the elmwood villiage area. The shops were quaint and very eclectic. Prices ranged from reasonable to moderate. Shop owners were very friendly. Suprised at how late they stayed open in the winter which is nice for travelors who are limtted for time and want to get in as much sightseeing and shopping in a few days... More

This is a cute little area. There are a ton of restaurants and small boutiques to check out. However, the elmwood area stretches over 1-2 miles, making it a bit difficult to take in all at once.
