Visit Buffalo/Niagara Falls.

Tucked away on the western edge of the state, Buffalo has long been relegated to the role of second fiddle behind the Big Apple. However, this former industrial boomtown formed along Lake Erie is today making waves and attracting visitors with its restaurant scene, riverfront entertainment, and beautiful greenspaces. Hop on a Southwest® flight and come see this city seizing its newfound moment in the spotlight.

While the city’s trademark chicken wing might be Buffalo’s best-known contribution to the culinary world, it’s certainly far from being the only thing around town that you’ve got to try. Birthplace of comfort-food classics like the beef on weck and spaghetti parm, Buffalo has more recently drawn regular praise as the home of restaurants that present an impressive range of international cuisines. In this one restaurant-packed city, you can find authentic flavors from all around the world and satisfy your cravings for everything from soul food to the flavors of Seoul.

Take some of your delicious meals to go while in town and enjoy a picnic at one of Buffalo’s many parks. Inspired by the parks of Paris, architect Frederick Law Olmsted—the mind behind New York City’s famous Central and Prospect Parks—designed Buffalo’s extensive parks system. And while many of the beautiful, interconnected parks are evocative of the City of Lights, they possess a verdant vitality and je ne sais quoi that belongs uniquely to Buffalo.

Head to sprawling South Park and you’ll find not only its vast lawn and picturesque lake, but also the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. Soak in the views and walk among an assortment of beautiful flora housed beneath the building’s distinctive dome. The city’s centerpiece, however, is the breathtaking expanse of Delaware Park. Located just north of downtown, visitors can enjoy a stroll through its colorful rose garden, around its meticulously maintained Japanese garden, past a replica of Michelangelo’s David, or alongside scenic Hoyt Lake. Overlooking the park are two of the city’s finest cultural centers, the Buffalo History Museum and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery—both of which are well worth a visit.

Boasting the highest flow rate of any falls on the entire continent, the awesome power and stunning beauty of Niagara Falls draw millions from around the world each year. No matter where you choose to view the falls—and there are many vantage points to be found among the nearby trails—it won’t take you long to see why this natural wonder continues to wow crowds year after year. Viewable during the daytime and into the evening, this one-of-a-kind wonder is equally stunning under the rainbow-making sun and beneath illuminating floodlights.
