Bowling: A pastime that dates back to Ancient Egypt and the Roman Empire, way before anyone even fathomed swinging at a baseball. And in the frigid desolation of Buffalo winter, bowling seems more logical than putting on a baseball mitt. You can find many bowling alleys in Buffalo, and we've done our best to list them all here for you!
