Niagara Falls#1 in Best Things To Do in Buffalo
- 3.5Food Scene
Just about 20 miles north of Buffalo, Niagara Falls makes for a great day trip. One of the world's most awe-inspiring waterfalls, Niagara Falls straddles two countries and drops waters over the cliff-face at speeds of 20 to 68 mph. It's no wonder that visitors find the falls euphoric. To view them, you have many options, from a Maid of the Mist boat tour to a walk behind the falls. Keep in mind that many Niagara Falls attractions close in the winter months due to inclement weather.
One TripAdvisor user makes a good pitch for visiting Niagara Falls and staying in a hotel in Buffalo, saying the "Falls are unbelievable ... However, [the] town is [a] tourist trap."

#2 Forest Lawn
Although Buffalo's Forest Lawn is a cemetery, it's such a beautiful one that many people visit for contemplative walks, peaceful picnics or even jogs. Many famous people — including former United States President Millard Fillmore and "Super Freak" singer Rick James — have been laid to rest here. For this reason, many visitors recommend you book a tour so that you can make sure to hit the cemetery's highlights.
Visitors to the cemetery especially enjoy its park-like setting. One TripAdvisor user says: "The lawns, roads, ponds, are immaculate. We felt like we were in a park not a cemetery."
