Buffalo is a thriving city with a great deal to offer, including two
major sport teams, the NFL Buffalo Bills and NHL Buffalo Sabres, numerous
museums, dining, and outlet shopping. Plan on visiting Niagara Falls on
the American side, just twenty minutes from Daemen, featuring one of the
natural wonders of the world, as well as world-class dining and
entertainment at the Seneca-Niagara Casino. Thirty minutes from Buffalo
is the Canadian border, offering accessibility to the Niagara-on-the-Lake
wine trail featuring the world famous Inniskillin winery, Reif, and many
others all leading to the quaint village of Niagara-on-the-Lake itself, a
picturesque town where the George Bernard Shaw Festival resides. Have a
traditional Victorian afternoon tea at the Prince of Wales Hotel; take a
horse and carriage ride through the cobblestone streets; visit the
boutique shops that line either side of the main road--including a sweets
shop that sells Turkish Delight and a bakery with authentic French
