Fun things to do in buffalo

New York State is SO diverse that there are always great places to visit with the kids, and Buffalo should be on every family’s list to visit! It’s a great area of New York State, and the family fun comes in all sorts, for kids of all ages!

Buffalo Zoo is a great place to watch the majestic lions roam, or the giraffes play. Kids can explore the incredible exotic plants with Buffalo Botanical Gardens, or journey through the the incredible natural world and sciences at the Buffalo Museum of Science.

Helicopters, army tanks, and really cool jets? Must be the Naval Military Park! Great for kids to learn all about some pretty fascinating history.

There are great family fun activities for those active kids, like the Pole Position Raceway where kids can go up to 20mph, and there is even the super sweet Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum where kids can try out the vintage rides! 

Don’t get they city mixed up with the big, furry animals that roam the country! They have the same name, but we have a feeling the city is more fun to play with!
