Beautiful Buffalo

The Buffalo-Niagara region is defined by a neighborly way of life, an unpretentious nature and spirited loyalty among residents. In fact, one of Buffalo’s nicknames is “The City of Good Neighbors.” Buffalo is big enough to have professional sports teams and world-renowned cultural institutions, yet it brims with small-town charm and convenience. We take pride in being friendly, caring and full of fun — especially in the snow!
