We know we don’t have to remind you, but there’s a lot canceled right now. And while it’s absolutely for the best, that doesn’t mean it’s not still a huge bummer. 

One thing that’s not canceled, though, is the gorgeous street art that’s all around our beautiful city. If you’ve been meaning to see some of these masterpieces in person (and snag some shots for Instagram with not many people around), it’s basically the perfect time. 

Whether you take a solo drive around Buffalo to get out of the house and preserve your sanity, or simply enjoy exploring the neighborhood from the comfort of your own home, use the guide below to check out some of the best murals in downtown Buffalo:
