The Bolts take on the Buffalo Bills this Sunday in Buffalo, NY. Traveling along with the team? We’ve got you covered with some tips for your weekend trip!
How to Get There:
Buffalo Niagara International Airport is only 15 miles from New Era Field and 10 miles from downtown Buffalo, making it an easy car ride no matter where you go.
Sunday is expected to be a bit warm by Buffalo standards, with a high of 81 degrees. It’ll be a sunny weekend, but rain showers are predicted for game day morning, so be sure to bring your rain jacket with you!
What to Eat & Drink:
You can’t go to Buffalo and not eat the most iconic food from the city! Be sure to stop by Anchor Bar – birthplace of the original Buffalo chicken wing – for draft beers, wings and a little jazz music.
While Anchor Bar claims birthplace of wings, there is stiff competition for who has the best wings in the city. Swing by Duff’s Famous Wings to try out their chicken wings and let us know which place you think has the best ones!
If you’re looking to a fun night out but want to stick to one location, Pearl Street Grill and Brewery is the place to be. Located in a historic building, the brewery boasts nine different bars spanning across four floors. It’s the perfect place to catch a game with a house-made cold one in your hand, whether it be at one of the indoor bars or outdoor patios.
Things to Do:
20 miles north of Buffalo is one of the seven natural wonders of the world: Niagara Falls. At this National State Park, you might be left speechless by one of the world’s largest waterfalls and its breathtaking views. If you’ve got your passport on you, you’ll also be able to jump over to the Canada side of the Falls and get a different view from our northern neighbor.
Another water-side attraction is Canalside Buffalo. The newly-revitalized waterfront area in downtown Buffalo boasts delicious restaurants and shops to accompany your stroll along the boardwalk.
In need of a little fresh air and a quiet place? Visit Delaware Park for a nice walk or picnic. You can even take a carriage ride through the 350-acre park and, if the weather permits, you can rent a boat to take out onto Hoyt Lake.
Inside of Delaware Park, you can find the Buffalo Zoological Gardens, the third-oldest zoo in America. Established in 1875, the zoo features a variety of animals including rare ones like polar bears and red pandas.
