Explore Buffalo's Winter Wonderland!

Though the weather outside may be frightful, there’s plenty of delightful winter fun to be had in Western New York! Having missed out on so many of our favorite local festivities last year, why not get the most out of the winter months this time around? Get out of the house this season and embrace that lake effect snow. Whether you’re flying solo, taking the whole family, or searching for a fun date idea, Buffalo is the place to be for cold weather activities.

Ice at Canalside is located right on the waterfront of the Erie Canal in downtown Buffalo. Not only can you ice skate here, but there are tons of other fun things to do and sights to see. Sign up for curling, take a ride on one of Canalside’s ice bikes, or hop in a bumper car on the ice! If you’re looking for a good spot to take a date, Canalside also has beautiful igloos available to rent for a more intimate and cozy vibe. The Outer Harbor also offers cross-country skiing if you’re in the mood for some exercise! Enjoy all the great eating and drinking options this area has after you’ve finished up your activities.
