When to Visit Buffalo

The best time to visit Buffalo is between June and August. Although summertime is the most crowded and the city's high season, the weather can't be beat: Average highs are in the upper 70s and lower 80s. The tourist crowds tend to wane a bit in the fall and spring, but these seasons can be pretty chilly. Wintertime in Buffalo can be downright dismal with temperatures at the freezing level or below, coupled with lots and lots of snow.

Getting Around Buffalo

The best way to get around Buffalo is by car. Although the city offers both bus and train service, a car will be the most convenient option for getting to and from Buffalo hotels and the top things to do. If you'd rather take a taxi, you'll have to call one of the city's trusted companies; hailing a cab on the street isn't easy.
