+Greater Buffalo

Welcome to Buffalo, NY

The Greater Buffalo Area

is the largest metropolitan area outside of New York City in the state. Visitors say we have the arts, culture, sports, and nightlife comparable to most, but the easiness of a small-like town. Buffalo is at the edge of Lake Erie which culminates the historic Erie Canal, west of the world renowned wine region of The Finger Lakes, and conveniently central between Toronto, Niagara Falls, and Rochester. This natural wonderland offers one of the most visually stunning places to see. From amusement parks to sports to historical landmarks - there’s a little bit of everything for all!
