We all might think that Buffalo is one of the most underrated waterfront cities, but now it’s official – USA Today has listed The Queen City at number 9 on their list of 25 affordable American waterfront cities!

Between Canalside and the Outer harbor, there are endless opportunities for outdoor entertainment. Canalside has opened up the door for many waterfront activities such as summertime concerts, boat tours, kayaking, & festivals. Buffalo’s Outer Harbor brings the beach, water sports, bike paths, and volleyball courts.  The activities don’t stop here, our winter also gives us a plethora of fun activities like ice skating, curling, igloos at the ice and much more. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Buffalo story without those good eats that Buffalonians cant get enough of.


But what makes us so affordable? According to USA today, “With the exception of transportation costs, which are the highest of any city on the list, most costs in Buffalo are low, rendering it affordable overall.”

It’s no secret that Buffalo isn’t a secret anymore (whaddup Oxford Pennant), and that the City of Good Neighbors has made its way on the international destination map. Buffalo is a vibrant city with so much to offer its people, and we’re just glad the world has taken notice!
