east aurora

Hi, we are 10 couples staying in East Aurora on June 21st for the weekend.

Can anyone suggest things to do there?

Should we be concentrating on things to do in Buffalo instead?

thanks

Hi amigoma, What sort of things are you interested in? Art? Architecture? The great outdoors? Shopping? You're staying in a nice place for all of the above, although if you're bargain hunting you might do better in the suburbs of Buffalo. Let us know what you like to do!

We like all of the above. Hiking, art, architecture and shopping.

Not bargain hunting. The men would probably hate the shopping part.

So it will be limited.

Thank you so much for your quick reply Dee

Not a lot to do in East Aurora. There is the Roycroft complex, the Toy museum and the Knox Estate close by. Shopping is ok mostly small upscale stores and of course Vidler's 5 and 10. There are some nice parks close by and Griffis sculpture park in East Otto and the Eternal flame falls in Orchard Park. Here is a link:
