The Buffalo-Niagara Region

An International Border City

Buffalo borders Canada and is one of the United States’ top gateways for international trade.

Niagara Falls

Many Western New Yorkers take advantage of our three international bridge crossings to visit the beaches of neighboring Fort Erie, the Canadian side of Niagara Falls and cosmopolitan Toronto.

The grandeur of Niagara Falls can be enjoyed on both sides of the border. Several attractions, including the Maid of the Mist boat ride, allow visitors to get up close and personal to the Falls—not to mention a little damp—while taking in its roaring glory.

Toronto is less than a two-hour drive from Buffalo. The cultural, entertainment and financial capital of Canada, Toronto is also the country’s largest city, with more than 2.7 million residents.
