You can pick up a special Game Day bus to Ralph Wilson Stadium:

Niagara Falls is about 20 minutes from downtown Buffalo. You can enjoy the falls from the U.S. side, but if you want to go see the Canadian falls, you won't need a passport -- all you'll need is a birth certificate and a government-issued photo ID.

I'll let someone else answer your casino questions.

You can expect the same weather in Buffalo as you get in Cleveland. We get your weather probably the day after you get it (from the west). It could rain, it could snow, it could be a nice, sunny day... who knows!

Regarding hotels downtown, here's a list from a previous post:

1) Hampton Inn

2) Adam's Mark

3) Hyatt Regency Hotel

4) Comfort Suites

You can catch the train on Main Street and it's free as long as you stay above ground. The bus station where you will most likely catch the shuttle to the game is near Main and N. Division St, across from Church St.

Niagara Falls: The Seneca Niagara Casino is within walking distance of the actual Falls. If it's a nice day and you feel like walking, it's an easy walk to the Canadian side across the Rainbow Bridge. Just bring you birth cert and driver's license so they let you back into the USA.

There is a casino in downtown Bflo, but it's nothing special, from what I've been told.

the metro train does not go out to ralph wilson stadium. the stadium is in orchard park, about 25 min south of buffalo. (you'll pass it on the 90 as you drive up)if you drive to the game, leave your hotel early as traffic can get thick. consider driving, tailgating is art in buffalo! it's a lot of fun to experience. i would recommend the hampton inn. good central location for night life.

Don't waste your time or money at the Canadian casinos. The slots are VERY tight and you will never see a minimum below 15/20$. Also, if you're a smoker, they are non-smoking and do NOT offer free drinks, whereas the Seneca casino on the US side does.

Go Bills! Boo Browns!

No offense to Gear but the Canadian Casinos are far superior to the Seneca if your motivation is a nice atmoshphere, shopping, and beauty. I can not speak for the gambling outcomes. To the Seneca's credit , they have great restaurants and a very nice concert venue. If you are into casinos, I would check out both....

drinks-yes, grills-yes, the lots open at the crack of dawn....it is full contact tailgaiting in Buffalo and I think after experiencing it, you will change your team affiliation. After going to a few Browns games...I believe Buffalo has the tailgaiting title...but it is very close.....Go Toronto...oh I mean Buffalo....!!
