4 Cool Western New York Attractions — Fun Things To Do + See

The beautiful weather has me thinking about summertime. It’s coming, people, and there will be plenty to do.

I thought I’d spotlight a few things you can do right here in Western New York — great ideas I found from VisitBuffaloNiagara.  Here are some of the coolest attractions Western New York has to offer.






I don’t have kids, but if I did, I think this would be a great place to spark their creativity, curiosity and imagination.  Take your kids to Western New York’s only museum designed just for kids, Explore & More Children’s Museum, or take them to the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum, where they can ride an old-fashioned carousel in the world’s only carrousel museum. This sounds like a kid’s dream — and a great learning experience, too.




Naval & Military Park



Another gem in our backyard is the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park, where you can tour the decks and hulls of a guided missile cruiser, destroyer and WWII submarine. It’s a hands-on experience like no other!


Botanical Gardens



How about exploring the amazing collection of exotic plants at the Botanical Gardens, where fun is easily found for you and your family. So many colors and beautiful plants and flowers to see — this sounds like it’s right up my alley.


Whirlpool Jetboats



When it gets hot outside, maybe you’ll be up for a ride and getting soaked on a summertime excursion on a Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour. This, I doubt I’ll do, but it may be your cup of tea.  If you like fast boats and getting pounded with water, this could be a thrill of lifetime — and it’s right in our backyard at the Falls.
