Fly from San Francisco to Buffalo/Niagara Falls

When you fly from San Francisco to Buffalo/Niagara Falls, the climate may be distinctly different, but both cities feature architectural treasures that showcase the various styles. Buffalo's waterfront location provides opportunities for enjoying nature during the summer, so pack your paddle boarding and water biking outfits. It is a vibrant community with a younger population drawn by the universities in the region. The flight from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Upstate New York takes about six to seven hours, and it takes half an hour to drive from Buffalo to Niagara Falls.


Start exploring Buffalo by visiting the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, which houses a large collection of impressionist paintings and works of American masters. The gallery features a neoclassical facade while the Darwin Martin House is a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece depicting Prairie-style design. Take a day trip to Niagara Falls to experience this iconic attraction on the Maid of the Mist tour, or join a guided kayaking tour.

Hints and tips

The Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF) is one of the region's busiest airports. Buffalo was an important trading post, turning into a manufacturing hub because the Erie Canal ended here. The area is characterized by intense winter weather. Expect to experience temperatures ranging from the low 30s to mid-70s year-round, and snowfall averaging about 20 to 30 inches a month during the winter.
