Details

Buffalo’s legacy as an important transportation and industrial center rose from the impressive waterfront. No visit is complete without a trip to the shores, where you'll find Canalside. The result of over $300 million in new development, Canalside hosts 1,000+ annual events. Every summer, outdoor yoga, children’s games and Thursday at Canalside concerts take place along the district’s Central Wharf. Each winter, throngs of visitors flock to the Ice at Canalside, a 35,000 square foot rink on the recreated Erie Canal that features, skating, curling, pond hockey and ice bikes. Across the street, LECOM Harborcenter attracts hockey players from around the world by hosting amateur and college tournaments at its two NHL sized rinks. And sports and food fanatics are flocking to the two-story (716) Food & Sport that features over 70 televisions, including a 38-foot tall screen for the big games. Our waterfront is also home to America’s largest inland Naval park, the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park. The Erie Basin Marina features an observation tower with breathtaking views of Buffalo and Canada. The historic Buffalo Lighthouse welcomes you to the Buffalo River. And the nearby Outer Harbor features miles of bike trails and lakefront parks. If you like fishing, the bass, salmon and trout are biting throughout our inner and outer harbors. Rent a kayak or waterbike or take a cruise aboard the Queen City Ferry, the Spirit of Buffalo or Buffalo Harbor Cruises to see it all!
