See a sports Event, Either the Sabres or Bills. I have been t o sporting events all over the country, and there is a special vibe that makes sports in Buffalo something special! 1991 AFC Championship game. Bills 51, Raiders 3. I was there, and the Bills made their first trip of many to the Super Bowl!
Take an architectural walking...
Take an architectural walking tour of downtown. Buffalo, like Chicago, is a city rich in pioneering forms or architecture. See the art deco masterpiece of City Hall, the Victorian mass of the Ellicott Square Building, the soaring neogothic St. Paul's Cathedral, and one of the world's first skyscrapers, the Guaranty Building (Sullivan). You usually have to call ahead for a tour, since they're not that frequent (downtown Buffalo is not exactly a tourist paradise). Check local guides and such for more details.
A summer visit
Typical summer clothes - it does get warm and humid here in the summer. Buffalo is a casual town so shorts, tank tops, sandals or athletic shoes (sneakers) are fine just about anytime.
For evenings, we do dress up here for the theater, orchestra or nice dinners. Wear what makes you feel good. Don't forget the sunglasses and sunscreen!
Tonawanda: The Western End of the Erie Canal
The Erie Canal was one of the greatest civil engineering feats of its day. Like the European canals, it serves a mainly recreational purpose. The western end is right here in the town of Tonawanda, north of Buffalo.
This picturesque, rather quiant town was once among the busiest ports on the Great Lakes. Today, it's a backwater, and certainly not a tourist destination. People were surprised to see anyone here with a camera. I enjoyed it.
If you're looking for that unusual, out-of-the-way place to visit, this is a good one. And it's only a short diversion off the interstate between Buffalo and Niagara.
