Attractions

Start exploring Buffalo by visiting the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, which houses a large collection of impressionist paintings and works of American masters.

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.
