Road Trippin’ in Our Own Backyards

With so much to see and do in the Western New York area, we’re hitting the road and taking you along for the ride! Let’s skip out on the long lines at the airport and those dreaded layovers and delve a little deeper into our own backyards. Buckle up and get ready to explore, because we’re making a weekend out of it (at least)!

The Curtiss Hotel

If you’re in the Buffalo area, there’s no better place to start than the Curtiss Hotel. Luxuriate in the 5-star boutique setting with a perfect Buffalo staycation package. Wind down during happy hour on their Vue Rooftop Lounge and perhaps peruse their amenities menu for a dozen chocolate strawberries or a charcuterie board you can’t go wrong with!


During your stay, spend some time exploring all that the Queen City has to offer! A pitstop at Buffalo Gal is the prime time to stock up on (or restock on) some plant-based, cruelty free skincare. Their Every Day Glow Glow Getter Serum puts a little pep in your step, and their Gemstone Bath Bomb is the perfect way to welcome yourself home after a weekend out and about—they also make for great gifts! (Don’t forget, check out the latest issue of Buffalo Home for $5 off any $25 purchase! Valid in-store and online.)


Body & Mind Massage offers a slew of facials guaranteed to help you feel relaxed and refreshed, and why not try out some Cupping Therapy? It’s great for reducing pain and inflammation! (They also offer gift certificates!)



Looking for a little retail therapy as well? Spruce on Main offers home décor and fashionable apparel, including this super comfortable maxi skirt! If you’re on vacation but still thinking of home, Julie Muscato Home & Gifts is a prime spot to check out when it comes to furniture and interior design, as is curated. by JUSTINTERIORS on the Eastside, with what they refer to as “an eclectic mix of new and vintage pieces.” Janis Reed Interiors focuses on designs inspired by you, whether you’re looking for a remodel or building a new home from the ground up, and Sequels is reinventing the way we think about consignment furniture!
