Traveling To Buffalo

traveling to BuffaloFrom things to do to places to stay, shop and eat, Buffalo’s two Visitor Centers don’t just have the answers, they also have the helpful Buffalonians you need to craft your vacation. And while you’ll only find our interactive regional map online, the Visitor Centers are stocked with brochures, public transportation information, events schedules and Buffalo’s best selection of souvenirs and merchandise.

At the Airport
The Airport Visitor Center is located in the secure area of the airport, across from the Anchor Bar (Buffalo wings were invented in the Anchor Bar’s downtown location.) It’s open 6am-6pm, 7 days a week.

Downtown
The Buffalo Niagara Visitor Center is located on the first floor of the historic Brisbane Building at Clinton and Washington Streets and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Come as a visitor; leave as Buffalo’s newest friend!
