Senior activities

Buffalo has been having a renaissance, based on its proximity to nature and its vibrant environment. The city’s remarkable transformation includes a redeveloped waterfront, revitalized neighborhoods, and a burgeoning craft beer scene. From old-school taverns and dive bars to craft beers, casinos, and live music, the Nickel City runs from dusk to near dawn. The city, however, is perhaps most famously known for its chicken wings. Buffalo’s Anchor Bar changed the course of American food history in 1964 by inventing the Buffalo-style chicken wing. In the decades since, Buffalo’s corner taverns have perfected variations on the wing, each with its own secret recipe. While you’re in Buffalo, you’ll be right near Niagara Falls State Park, known for its awe-inspiring scenic beauty. The raw power of 4-6 million cubic feet of water rushing over the edges every minute of the day is a true natural wonder that can be experienced by land or water.
