Buffalo travel tips

1) Visit Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo for an unforgettable shopping

Head to Elmwood Avenue while in Buffalo if you are a demanding shopper. It hosts plenty of interesting eclectic stores. Visit Neo Gift Shop to buy hand-made jewelleries. Or what about eco-aware apparel from Rusterior Design or Stationery and Art prints from C Designs? All of these you will find in ShopCraft stores starting from 1 dollar.

2) Have a trip by public transport to East Aurora in the morning and plan to return to Buffalo in advance

East Aurora is a must to dive into the history of Buffalo. It was originally a settlement of the Roycroft community, a colony of furniture makers, blacksmiths, bookbinders, and other artisans. Visit the building where Millard Fillmorethe (the thirteenth American president) lived and worked as a lawyer from 1826 to 1830. Bear in mind that the NFTA Metro Bus # 70 to East Aurora from downtown Buffalo departs early in the morning, and you need to plan an alternative means of returning in advance.

3) Drink pale IPA beer in Thin Man Brewery in Buffalo

Located on Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, Thin Man Brewery is the favourite place for local beer lovers. They admit this is barely the only brewery producing IPA that is pale (beer connoisseurs know how difficult it is to get this sort). You can also sample their extraordinary seasonal dishes, like watermelon-cucumber gazpacho in summer.
