Our Lady of Victory Basilica

Reviewed By Utah-Indy - Helotes, Texas

Haven’t been here in our 30 years! I remember the wonderful Christmas Midnight masses. The building itself is architecturally amazing inside and outside. Truly a national treasure. We arrived after the museum and gift shop downstairs closed at 4pm. Be respectful when you enter.

Penn Dixie Fossil Park & Nature Reserve

Reviewed By JARB98 - Niagara Falls, New York

I purchased a Groupon for the Penn Dixie and we decided to use it this past Sunday. When we arrived, I really wasnt sure that it was going to be worth it, certainly didn't look like much, BUT WOW... Our "guide" who showed us what to do was nice, knowledgeable and spent time going over hammer to rock techniques...
We left with a bag full of fossils.
Just be sure to sunblock, there isn't any shade.

Eternal Flame Falls

Reviewed By FlightTime27 - Lake Grove, New York

This is a cool natural feature to see. It's a relatively short hike, maybe 20-25 minute walk. It's a little slippery in spots, but you'll know where. I think it's a great idea to stop by earlier in the morning or maybe before dinner-time so there are fewer people. We went with a group of 3 around 2pm on a Sunday. There were about 20 cars and 10 people taking photos around the flame- not bad at all.

The Fairgrounds

Reviewed By jimbo5454 - Cape Coral, Florida

I've been going to the Fair for over 70 years . This year we decided on Channel 4 day because of the weather and the $4. Admission and $4. Parking (usually $10. and $5.) This is a great place to go for all because of the wide avenue of things to do from rides , games , shows , exhibits , animals , etc. Was even a free show at night with John Conlee and The Bellamy Brothers. Had to leave early because of the BB drummer being way to loud but that was the only negative , other than eating to much with all the deep fried goodies. The Fair area was really spruced up this year with new areas , a lot of flowers and it seemed like widened walkways. Anyway we really enjoyed our day and to top it off we stopped at the Hamburg Gaming Casino (on sight ) on the way out . Wife and I got free play and with it I won almost enough to cover our day at the Fair. So if your new to the area or live here , go visit the Fair in .Hamburg ,NY Great way to spend the day.

Woodlawn Beach State Park

Reviewed By stefee818 - Marquette, Michigan

My husband and I have a goal of swimming in every great lake. We grew up on the shores of Lake Superior. We both needed to still do Lake Erie, so on our honeymoon in New York, we decided to find a beach and do it.

The beach we chose was Woodlawn Beach State Park. It's a beautiful beach. Huge an sandy with a bouncy playground, a regular playground, and a volleyball net. The trail to get there goes through a little bit of woods and has information along the way. It really is a nice place. The only thing that wasn't so nice were the bathrooms, but after years of use at a sandy beach, I didn't really expect much else.. There are also lifeguards and lifeguard stations at this beach, which is a benefit. There is a gift shop and a snack shop at this location also. It cost us $7 to get in.

That "smell" that people are talking about is lake smell. I grew up with it my entire life. I didn't smell anything that was unusual to a lake.

Ralph Wilson Stadium

Home field of the Buffalo Bills

Reviewed By travelingbeachbum00 - Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

If you can say one thing about Buffaloians it is that they love the Bills! What a great experience being in the stadium when the Bills are playing...better when they are winning! It is an open air stadium which baffles me since this is Buffalo after all. SO you are exposed to the elements but the enthusiasm of the crowds helps. There have been some nice upgrades so all in all a good experience.

Shea's Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By Cyprian C

Have been here multiple times for multiple plays and this place never disappoints.

Would recommend getting seating above row E (on main floor) that way you get sight of the entire stage, and naturally stay away from the far sides (like every theatre).

Great acoustics inside and. Concessions very reasonably priced (6-8$ beer/wine) (4-6 snacks).

If you love theatre and can afford to do so, it is always great to experience the same play from multiple seating locations - always a different and amazing experience.

Past and Present

Reviewed By Marcia B - North Tonawanda, New York

Since my daughter and I are "rock hounds," Past and Present is one of our favorite stores. We could browse the shelves and drawers for hours and we always find something to add to our collections. It might be a mineral, a book, a toy, a loupe....I could go on forever. To top it off, they have a free fossil gallery. There is so much to see that we keep going back and see something new (to us, that is) every time.
