Just carving some time out for my new friends 🎃 Cue my yearly visit to the Great Pumpkin Farm! Did you know it’s free admission on weekdays? The outdoor stands aren’t open, but you can still buy pumpkins, say high to the goats, and eat too many sweets at the bakery. There’s also less people, which is great for those who are immunocompromised (like me). **masks are required and were worn before and after this photo** Have you picked your pumpkins yet? And if so, what do you plan on carving in them? . . .. . . .. #greatpumpkinfarm #pumpkinpatch #pumpkincarving #pumpkinseason #spookyseason #justfallthings #halloweenvibes #pumpkinphotoshoot #hashtagstepoutbuffalo #autumnaesthetic #BeccauseWeCreate #connectingcreativecuties #creativegalgang #shinelikesandra #travelbuf #explorebuffalo #risebflo #basicbuffalobitch #buffalony #buffalonewyork #travelbuf #buffalove #cityofgoodneighbors #buffaloblogger #buffalobloggers #buffalovebloggers #lifestyleblogger

1. The Great Pumpkin Farm

11199 Main St, Clarence, NY

This one is a tried and true fall classic –a tradition really. From the pumpkin tower to the corn mazes you can get the perfect shot. Not to mention the Witches Brew Cafe & Brew and the tricked out Halloween shop.

2. The Cobblestone District

Around 300 Ellicott Street (Electric City Mural)
There is no specific address for this one, but the cobblestone district is full of cool brick walls, perfectly worn-in buildings, and some cool graffiti and murals for your backgrounds. An ideal city setting for your Insta pic.

3. Mayer Bros. Cider Mill

1540 Seneca Creek Rd, Buffalo, NY
Another classic and Insta favorite. The Cider Mill not only offers a great background but the apple cider slushie of your dreams. Grab an apple cider donut and wear your best fall fit for that picture and fall treat all in one.

4. Ellicottville

Washington St, Ellicottville, NY
Another staple that we had to include. Ellicottville is basically the picture-perfect fall setting. Beautiful scenery, changing leaves everywhere, and the rustic town street. Right now is the ideal time of year to hit this spot.

5. Knox Farms

437 Buffalo Rd, East Aurora, NY
If you need any pictures done at all, this is the place. Knox Farms has barns, a dog park, and the entire field to explore. Take a nice fall walk and take a few pics while you’re at it. (Also a popular wedding and engagement destination!).

6. Apple Picking

An apple orchard is just about as fall as it gets. The best spot to rock an outfit and get your fall vibes on. Check out our guide to apple orchards in the area!

7. Clarence Town Park

10405 Main St, Clarence, NY
Somewhat of a hidden gem when it comes to fall scenery. From beautiful trees and a bridge over the pond to a classic barn building shot. Make sure you walk a little farther back for this one to catch those leaves!

8. Downtown Buffalo

646 Main St, Buffalo, NY
The best spot is right in front of Shea’s to get your oh so Buffalove pic.

Catch peak fall colors all around town, like this wonderful view at Hoyt Lake in Delaware Park. #InTheBUF photo by @scott_balzer

10. Delaware Park

199 Lincoln Pkwy, Buffalo, NY
Specifically, the area around Hoyt Lake is so underrated for fall views. There are so many places here, around the lake and beyond, to enjoy and capture.

11. Tifft Nature Preserve

1200 Fuhrmann Boulevard, Buffalo, NY
This 264-acre nature preserve with 5 miles of trails and boardwalks is bound to give you a great background. You can even enjoy a zen nature experience.

Originally named for the chestnut trees on its hills, Chestnut Ridge Park is the perfect place to go on #TakeAHikeDay! #ILoveNY : @buffalophotoblog

A post shared by I LOVE NEW YORK (@iloveny) on

12. Chestnut Ridge Park

6121 Chestnut Ridge Rd, Orchard Park, NY
This is an amazing place for a fall trail setting and even a waterfall on the way. From bridges to forests this park has everything fall.


13. Akron Falls

44 Parkview Dr, Akron, NY
This waterfall park is beautiful even in the fall. A short walk or hike toward the waterfall is surrounded by changing foliage. Not only that, but there is still an entire park to explore-and even a gorgeous hidden rock garden and gazebo (if you can find it).

14. Your Favorite Local Cafe

Another must, Buffalo has really stepped up its cafe game this year and our Instagram feed cannot get enough. Grab a pumpkin spice latte and a caffeinated snap. Check out some local cafes in WNY!

15. Pick A Mural, Any Mural

From the “Don’t Let Poet’s Lie To You” mural to “Keep Buffalo A Secret”, just about any mural makes for an artistic shot. You can check out all of our guides to murals in every part of WNY here.




16. The Rooftop Of One Seneca Tower

1 Seneca St, Buffalo, NY
This is a newbie but a goodie. If you can grab a private tour of the One Seneca Tower their rooftop is incredible. Even their lobby is worthy of the ‘gram. You can even grab lunch in their chef-run food court.

444 Forest Ave, Buffalo, NY
Walk the beautiful grounds – the trees and brick walls make for a beautiful scene. Pro-tip: take pictures here right at golden hour and get the best lighting.

18. Letchworth State Park

A no-brainer for everything nature and fall.
