“Buffalo wasn’t on your radar for a spring break vacation? Maybe it should be.”

There’s plenty of amazing things to do when you visit Buffalo. From new and trendy local restaurants popping up on every block to bars with a long list of handcrafted cocktails, there always seems to be something new to try. If you’re eager to go on a little adventure (I mean come on who isn’t?!) Not only is Buffalo a cool place to explore, but it’s actually very affordable!

Don’t believe us? Well, you should! This article from Wanderu states that the Queen City takes the official number one spot on their list of cheapest spring break trips. The average cost of a one-way flight to Buffalo during the spring will fall in at about $143.83, which is very affordable compared to other popular destinations.

The average cost of  hotel room in Buffalo on a weekend night in March is $99.90 and there are plenty of hotels that fall near the racking 429 cheap and high-quality bar locations that Buffalo has to offer! Lucky for you, our bars also have creative handcrafted cocktails that usually range at about $9 per drink and refreshing beers that start at $4.


As if Buffalo wasn’t already a cool place to travel to, it’s also just a short trip to one of the seven wonders of the world, Niagara Falls!

Although we can’t always guarantee spring-time weather in Buffalo, we can guarantee that you will have a weekend filled with great food, boozy drinks, and a new adventure to try. As Buffalonians, we could have told you that but it’s still always nice to hear from others.
