This is awesome! According to VisitBuffaloNiagara, this is the first time since 2009, Buffalo has made the list of the "52 Places To Go" list from the NY Times. This list isn't just cities in the US, it's places in the world! Nestled between Lithuania and La Paz, Bolivia, Buffalo comes in at 37 on the list. Noted at "A Rust Belt city that has a renaissance," Buffalo holds its own among amazing and notable cities.

In the list from the NY Times, Dave Seminara writes of Buffalo,

"Once disparaged for its declining population, harsh winters and failing sports teams, Buffalo is making a big comeback in large part by repurposing its historic buildings and long-dormant grain silos. Downtown Buffalo now buzzes with life thanks in part to the ever-expanding Canalside entertainment and recreation complex and a host of new dining and drinking establishments. In 2017, three new brewpubs and two new luxury hotels, the Hotel Henry and the Curtiss Hotel, opened in previously vacant landmark buildings and industrial spaces. This year, a new, 43,000-square- foot, $27 million children’s museumwill open downtown, and major renovations at two Frank Lloyd Wright designed homes, Graycliff and the Darwin Martin House, will be complete".

You can see the full list and article from the NY Times and see which other places they are telling people to travel in 2018. This is just another list that Buffalo has made in the past year that have shown the growth not only within Buffalo but the views from outside. From architecture to food, Buffalo is becoming a place not just to travel but a place to start businesses and families too!
