When you look at where Buffalo sits on a map, the first thing you’ll notice is water. Located on Lake Erie and the Niagara River, Buffalo is just a short walk over the Peace Bridge from Canada. The Ontario cities of Hamilton and Toronto are short drives away.
U. S. News & World Report says Buffalo has a neighborly feel. Residents can gather in local pubs or top-tier restaurants. Tree-lined avenues connect residents to each other, and traffic is more manageable in the region than in larger metro areas like New York City.
And Buffalo is only 20 miles away from an international tourism destination: Niagara Falls. Plus, there’s excellent skiing less than an hour from downtown and hiking trails in nearly national and state parks.
Buffalo’s housing costs are lower than the national median. The median home price is $77,800 and monthly rent averages $735.
If there’s one thing that can bring Buffalo residents together, it’s sports. Locals are passionate about their teams, braving snowy weather to cheer on their beloved Bills (football) and Sabres (hockey).
