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. And Buffalo is only 20 miles away from an international tourism destination: Niagara Falls. As for those long winters, there’s excellent skiing less than an hour from downtown.
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.

If there’s one thing that can bring Buffalo residents together, it’s sports.

The major industry generally in Nebraska is agriculture, the landscape, rolling hills, and fertile plains is the one major reason for the wild west lifestyle for most people in the state.

The monthly rent is around $745 for a 900 square foot apartment and the median home value is about $175,000.
