When winter makes its’ presence known in Buffalo, many people start to plan more activities at home to stay out of the cold. But no matter what the weather holds, there’s plenty to do both indoors and out during the colder months! Whether you’re an out-of-towner looking for a weekend getaway to a hotel overlooking the famous Niagara Falls, or a Buffalo resident in need of a staycation; Buffalo New York has just the experience you’ll remember for a lifetime.
If you’ve got some adventure in your blood, strap your bikes to the top of the car and join in on the Snow Roll. For the uninitiated, it’s the winter version of the Slow Roll — a bike tour showcasing interesting Buffalo sites. For the Snow Roll, you’ll get to ride with hundreds of area residents and visitors at a leisurely pace as you explore the city in its snow-covered splendor. The event includes a clothing donation drive, so bring your household’s unwanted winter coats and clothes for a good cause. The event is hosted by Buffalo Distilling Co., and food trucks will be on hand post-ride to help fuel the festivities.
If you still haven’t had your fill of winter bike rides, try something a little different. Head to Canalside in Downtown Buffalo and hop on an ice bike. There’s always something going on at this waterfront site, from ice-skating lessons to tastings, so be sure to explore the area and check out other activities.
For more outdoor adventure, consider the 3rd Annual Larkinville Ice Festival. Held at Larkin Square in Downtown Buffalo, it’s a family-friendly festival held in a public square. From sledding and games to winter crafts, everyone in the family will find something to love.
You may be tempted to fill up on food-truck fare, but be sure to save room for goodies available around town on this busy day. The annual Buffalo Soup Fest gives you the opportunity to try up to 75 soups from 30 restaurants. Even the pickiest eaters are bound to find a favorite at this Buffalo Niagara Convention Center event. We can’t think of any better way to fill up on a winter day.
Before you head out of town, you must at the very least see the splendor that is the Niagara Falls. Spilling nearly 150,000 gallons of water per second, the falls are a breathtaking scene and a must-see for any visitor or resident. Stay at the fine Giacomo Hotel in Niagara for easy access to the falls and a luxuriously appointed room to make your visit to buffalo complete. Set yourself up for a lifetime of great stories with your Buffalo vacation.
