Take A Trip To Niagara Falls

Just 20 miles away from Buffalo is one of the most beautiful sites in the world, Niagara Falls. People flock from all over to take in the wonder of these falls. An interesting fact about the Niagara falls is that they are around 12,000 years old and were formed when melted glaciers turned into huge freshwater lakes. You can see the spectacle both in the daytime and at nighttime when they put on a light show around the falls. 

Scuba Diving

Keeping with the water theme, why not try your hand at scuba diving while you are traveling around Buffalo. Scuba diving is not only a great exercise for swimming, but it also allows you to see some of the amazing sites underwater. Dip ‘N Dive is a wonderful company offering a five-star scuba diving service. All equipment is provided and you will receive a certificate on completion of the course. 

Escape Rooms 

If you fancy trying your luck at an escape room then the one in Buffalo is amazing and has many different rooms to experience. They have a brand new room to try as well that just opened in March this year. If you have 3-8 people in your party then you can try the escape rooms, you will not be placed with people you don’t know. They offer a brother’s Grimm escape room where you will have to escape the witch traveling through the forest as you do it. The new room is called The Seance and as you can imagine it is rather creepy. 

If being cooped up inside isn’t your cup of tea they also offer an outdoor park experience that takes place in Delaware Park about 2.5 miles away from their main escape rooms. During your time you will have to find the treasure and solve the mystery of the ghostly goings-on. 


While you are visiting Buffalo it seems only fitting that you visit the 3rd oldest zoo. Here you will find many animals and you can come face to face with some of them in underground walkways and tunnels. They have struggled a little bit in the past with funding and attendance but have got many new plans to make the zoo even better than it already is. Buffalo zoo is home to local wildlife as well as rare and endangered species. Visitors at the zoo can even sit and watch sea lions being fed in the seating area, or watch them swimming around at the underwater viewing area.
