Things to do in Buffalo


Me and my partner will be staying in Buffalo for my bday weekend, any suggestions for places to go? Cheap places? Bars?

She is 20y/o, are there bars/clubs we could go?

It is my first to go to Buffalo esp in the US and I want to be fun :)

Elmwood, yes. You may want to climb City Hall - free & good views on the Observation Deck.

Depending on when you're here, check out the Buffalo page on Trip Advisor for a Festivals calendar. Shakespeare in the Park is free.

Check out the NFTA website. There is a trip planner where you can get into on exactly which buses to take. Just enter your starting and ending point addresses.

To follow up on jmasc1, since you won't have a car, if you're going to rely on public transportation, be sure to purchase a day pass for $5, then you can hop on and off the bus or subway all day.

Anybody know some good, not too expensive places with local specialties to eat at that are in downtown or easily accessible by transit?

The Elmwood Bus #20 runs every 15 minutes during the day and approx every 20 minutes after 6pm - midnight daily. Another great shopping and eating district is Little Italy along Hertel Ave. in Buffalo's North Side. Bus number #25 Delaware or #11 Colvin will take you there from downtown. And don't forget when in downtown, check out Allen St. - Great mix of cool boutique's, cafe's, restaurants, and cool nightlife with live performances nightly (some may allow under 21 of age to attend just for the entertainment.).
