What to do in Amherst

Little ones and adults alike can make as much noise as they want on the rides at Monster Mini Golf, which offers an energetic, boisterous atmosphere.

Let some of the best in the movie biz charm you from the silver screens at AMC Maple Ridge 8 and The Screening Room Cinema Cafe. UB Stadium features some heart-pumping action and entertainment, whether you're watching an intense game or a favorite musician play live at a concert.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, there's Le Nails. Here, you can enjoy a little pampering and serenity while in Amherst.

Don't want to turn in early? Grab a cold brew or mixed drink at Chili's Grill & Bar and York Chinese KTV.

Get outdoors in Amherst

Not all of Amherst's attractions are indoors. Spend some time at Glen Park. Visiting Niagara Falls State Park, too, is a good way to get outside.

You can also learn a thing or two while exploring Amherst — just dive into the books at Lockwood Memorial Library and Medaille College Bookstore. The knowledge-filled halls and campus of University at Buffalo, UB School of Dental Medicine and State University of New York may be worthy of a tour.
