Buffalo beat out cities such as San Antonio, Texas; Providence, Rhode Island; and Norfolk, Virginia; and Nashville, Tennessee, the second, third fourth and fifth-place winners.
“Buffalo impressed readers with everything from its affordability to its surprising, high-end dining,” the magazine wrote. Buffalo scored high in all categories, and people said they thought Buffalo’s been wildly underrated.
Buffalo buzzes with life, the magazine noted, from the Canalside district, where Buffalonians enjoy fitness, recreational and entertainment activities, to the RiverWorks project, the city’s new boating, sports, music and entertainment destination on the banks of the Buffalo River.
Buffalonians love that there are distinct neighborhoods throughout the city that give it a neighborly feel. Lovely areas like the Elmwood Village district sport well-kept-up historic homes, art galleries, great restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques, and a walkability that you don’t always find in American cities.
Of course, Buffalo’s park system, created by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead, got high marks from Travel & Leisure Readers. Beautiful Delaware Park is the crown jewel of the system, with its meadows, lake and woods, and pathways that lead you through nearly 350 acres of natural beauty.
The one category in which Buffalo enthusiasts ranked the city a bit lower was weather. Yes, we do get snowstorms in the winter, but spring, summer and fall are heavenly! And winter weather seldom keeps Buffalonians from their favorite pursuits—as Travel & Leisure notes, you can even rent an ice bike or enjoy skating at the Canalside ice rink!
