Serving as the focal point of Upstate New York, the city of Buffalo gained its roots through the surge of industry in the early 1900s, becoming one of the strongest urban centers in the Great Lakes region. Epitomizing the term boomtown, Buffalo started as a small trading community that rapidly flourished after the construction of the Erie Canal, which connected the Hudson River to the Great Lakes. The close proximity to the Canadian border has morphed the city into a retail giant and tourist attraction, prompting Forbes magazine (2010) to rank it 10th under the "best place to raise a family" category. For this reason, Buffalo is a city of many colors that can easily please tourists of all persuasions, from nature lovers to rampant sports fans.
The city's prominent commercial status has naturally made it a haven for professional sports, fostering popular teams like the NFL's Buffalo Bills and the NHL's Sabres. However, many may be unaware that there are several other professional sports teams in the area, including the Bisons (International Baseball league), the Bandits (National Lacrosse League), FC Buffalo (NPSL) soccer team and Flash (Women's soccer). This is a great place for soccer fans, as its shared border with Canada ramps up the competition between rival teams in this internationally-acclaimed sport.
Those who would rather take in the sights can sample many of the local parks, which are never hard to find. In fact, many people refer to Buffalo as the City of Trees because of the prevalence of parks and the numerous trees that dot the area. There are six major parks in the city, which doesn't include Niagara Falls. Although this attraction isn't part of Buffalo, it's merely 17 miles to the northeast - making this area a convenient hub for anyone who wants to feast his or her eyes on the famous falls before venturing into Canada.
Food lovers can find virtually anything that satisfies their cravings in Buffalo, from fine Italian cuisine to Caribbean and soul food, to the city's namesake wings. The pizza is a rich blend between New York and Chicago styles, which only seems natural since the city's identity has always been perplexing - Great Lakes city or Northeastern city? The only way to truly find out is to have a look for yourself!
