It’s no secret Buffalo is a great place to visit…

Travel and 2020 didn’t exactly go hand in hand, but 2021 is right around the corner and we’re keeping our fingers crossed to travel again.

As we look ahead to future travel plans, one of the best places to visit might just be in our own backyard!


Travel + Leisure recently named Buffalo the 7th best place to travel in 2021, and it’s no surprise we ranked so high! From our food to our art scene to our breweries to our architecture, there’s plenty to explore in the Queen City.

Scott Bay of Travel + Leisure encourages folks to visit Buffalo for the following reasons:

“Sure, you’ve heard rumblings about Buffalo’s restaurants, or maybe its brewery boom. But lately, the city is getting attention for its visual arts scene — and most notably, a game-changing new gallery that’s Native American-owned and dedicated entirely to Indigenous art. Dave Kimelberg, a member of the Seneca Nation of Indians, founded K. Art — the only gallery of its kind in the U.S. — this year in an effort to showcase the diversity of Native nations and carve out a bigger space in the market for contemporary Native works. Elsewhere in the city, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is undergoing a massive expansion, currently slated for completion in 2022; until then, visit the institution’s Northland campus, or explore projects across the city from the AK Public Art Initiative. Still more developments are in the works: the $65 million Silo City restoration and reuse will bring arts, commercial, and exhibition space to a string of abandoned grain silos, and golf brand OnCore is launching a massive golf complex and hotel on the Buffalo River.”

This is not the first time travels have looked to Buffalo as a top travel destination and we sure hope it’s not the last! See more reasons why travel experts have been flocking to Buffalo here.
