Take a tour- The Albright Knox Art Gallery has a lot of interesting exhibitions and installations to see.

There are special programs and events for the whole family, and the gallery extends its hours from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m.
Shea’s Performing Arts Center- Built in the style of a European opera house in 1926 Shea’s is a national historic site. They continue to entertain the Buffalo community with numerous Broadway shows, concerts, and performances. They even offer a historical tour of the elegant theatre itself. More information is available on their website.
And let’s not forget, we have a natural wonder- Niagara Falls!!! And it’s only 20 minutes away.
If you’re more into shopping, why not check out the Elmwood Village. Locally owned and operated these trendy boutiques have something for everyone.
