Buffalo Waterfront

Buffalo waterfrontStanding at the eastern edge of Lake Erie, Buffalo is home to a beautiful, exciting waterfront.

At Buffalo’s historic Erie Canal Harbor, you can learn how Buffalo helped shape the country as the western terminus of the Erie Canal, tour WWII warships at the Buffalo & Erie County Naval & Military Museum, and attend hundreds of events throughout the year, from rock concerts to activities for kids.

Then walk around the Erie Basin Marina, which features a national test garden and an observation tower with fantastic views of the city and Lake Erie. Along Buffalo’s Outer Harbor, you’ll find trails for hiking, biking and birding.  Also, visit Buffalo's newest attractions at canalside, Water Bikes Of Buffalo, and Ice Bikes of Buffalo.

If you’re a fisherman, Buffalo has some of the best bass fishing in the country.

And there are plenty of options to explore Buffalo’s waterfront by boat. Set sail with the Spirit of Buffalo, Buffalo Harbor Cruises, the moondanceCat or the Queen City Water Ferry, or paddle yourself around with a rental from BFLO Harbor Kayak.
