7 things to do now that spring has arrived in Buffalo
With the first day of spring being March 20, we are all eager to get back outside and the removal of many of the restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic has made this the perfect opportunity to start living in the area again. Buffalo.
There are so many things to cross off our to-do list, there are tons of free activities, but where to start?
There may still be some ice on Lake Hoyt, but spring means it’s the perfect time to take a walk in what Fredrick Law Olmstead called the greatest park in the best-planned city…in the United States, if not the world.
Have brunch outside on the terrace at Delaware Park
After this lovely long walk around the Japenesse Meadow and Garden, I can’t wait to stop by the Delaware Park Casino to sit on the balcony inside The Terrace.
Fly a kite
My dad always told me to go fly a kite when I asked a silly question. What’s interesting is that I’ve never ridden one before – never. This spring, I’m going to Buffalo’s Outer Harbor State Park and fly my very first kite.
Get some ice cream at Hanna’s
One of my favorite things to do during a spring and summer in Buffalo is to pop into Hanna’s in North Buffalo. This has to be on your spring to-do list.
Play a game (or 3) of Golf
The Buffalo area has some pretty amazing private and public golf courses. Now that spring has arrived, you can play a quick 18 holes without having to wear your parka.
Queuing at Delta Sonic for a car wash
This alone is my favorite and least favorite spring activity, getting my car washed at Delta Sonic. However, we all know the queue will be quite long, so just make sure you have some good bits on deck.
Take a drive on Niagara Scenic Parkway with the roof open
Well, now that you’ve washed the car, go ahead and hop on 190 North towards Niagara Falls State Park. Once you hit the Niagara Scenic Parkway, formerly known as the Robert Moses Parkway, it’s time to drop the top and turn on your favorite radio station.
