When you have visitors visit for a couple of days in the summer, where do you take them to keep them entertained for a day?

Western New York has plenty of landmarks

When we were kids, we used to love it when family or friends would come to visit us here because we always got to take some pretty cool adventures.  Sure, Niagara Falls is definitely something that out-of-towners should see when they come here.  If they're Bills fans, they probably want to see Highmark Stadium and of course, Key Bank Center if they're Sabres fans.  They'll want to visit the original home of the chicken wing and then try all the other places that locals love too.

But once they've seen all the big ones that are on everyone's map, where do you take them?

You need to go off the beaten path sometimes

Sometimes to see the really cool stuff in a region, you need to get out of the same rut.  You need to check out some of the places that not everyone goes to.  From waterfalls with flames under them, to a park full of art sculptures made from steel and hard work, we've got a bunch of cool places to check out.

For the people who are ready for adventure, we've got places to hike that end up with some really cool sites.  But if you want something much more laid back and you're just looking for a beautiful park with incredible views, we've got those for you too.
