Hi Marco,

Here's the list for Buffalo on TripAdvisor: tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g60974-Activitie… According to it, the top three are:

1) Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House

2) Shea's Performing Arts Center

3) Buffalo City Hall

This excludes the Garden Walk which only takes place only two days/year (last Sat. & Sun. in July). If you are lucky enough to be in town on that weekend, then I highly recommend it.

I always recommend a trip to City Hall. FREE tours Mon.-Sat. (closed holidays) at 12:00 noon, meet in the lobby. If you can't make the tour, then take the elevator to the top floor (25th) and climb a few flights of stairs to the observation deck. Best view in the city - on a clear day you can see the mist from Niagara Falls - and it's free.

Walk along Elmwood Ave. in the Elmwood Village and Allen St. (Allentown District) both within walking distance of downtown Buffalo.

Take a free 1-hour tour of Buffalo City Hall at noon Mon-Sat (meet in the lobby) and view the city from the Observation Deck (also free Mon-Fri 9-5pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm).

Visit Canalside (Buffalo's NEW Waterfront), Boardwalks, Naval & Military Park, Boat Rides, Cruises, out door activities such as free yoga, dance, ping pong, concerts, restaurants, and more!
