Review of Erie Basin Marina

Reviewed 22 September 2013

Not far from bustling downtown Buffalo is this attractive waterfront area. We watched a catamaran cruise departing while we strolled the waterside walkway. There were plenty of others like us finding a good vantage point to watch the sunset over the lake. Occasional passing sailboats and the nearby lighthouse also make for some scenic photos.

If you're visiting Buffalo be sure to make it down to the Erie Basin Marina.There's sand for the kds, comfortable chairs for the grown-ups, food and beverages available.You may see tall ships or a classic car show. Navy ships are docked and open for tours. During the summer months be sure and check out the concert schedule.

Spent a lovely Saturday at the Marina with family. Enjoyed the water taxi ride and the opening of the light house. Having lived in Buffalo most of my life I found this a great find on a recent return visit.

Harbor front has been rebuilt within the last few years. Nice for walking. Great views of the sunset from the observation tower at the foot of the harbor. Can also get a quick bite to eat and ice cream.

We spent a half day at the waterfront. After spending a few days previously at the Niagara Falls, it was a perfect way to spend the day. We took a boat tour of the river and out to Lake Erie. Then when back on shore, we walked the length of the waterfront downtown. There's a naval area with 2 ships and a submarine, all of which you can choose to tour for a fee. We also passed an area where you could get snacks and ice cream along the way. At the far end is a tower from which you can view the city, the river, and the lake. Across the river from the tower is a lighthouse. The day that we were there, the weather was beautiful and we really enjoyed the relaxation of the waterfront.
