With the recent closing of Definitely Buffalo, the Buffalo
Niagara Visitors Center is the one-stop-shop to get all the latest and coolest
Buffalo merchandise. This is the place to get your authentic I Love Buffalo T-shirts
along with an array of other great souvenirs that include Anchor Bar hot sauce
and Buffalo sports team memorabilia. If the center does not carry the item you
are looking for, they will get it for you.
Summer is finally here and everything needed to plan an
outing in Buffalo is provided at the Buffalo Niagara Visitors Center. Whether you
need directions, maps, schedules for upcoming events or brochures, you will
find it at the center. Residents, guests and visitors can learn all about what
Buffalo has to offer by visiting the center, or by calling or emailing the
center with any questions they may have.
By stopping into the visitor center, you can experience
everything offered to the full extent with video previews of the city, a mini
art gallery, endless visitor guides, coupon books and friendly faces to answer questions.
The Star Theater, small and cozy, allows people to get a taste of what they can
see and visit with a 5 to 10 minute video clip of various attractions
throughout Buffalo. Niagara Falls, Old Fort Niagara, East Aurora and the architecture
of Buffalo are some of the themes of the video clips. Works themed around
divinity and urban mysticism by Soyolma, nominated 2008 Female Artist of the
Year by the Union of Mongolian Artists, are currently on display at the
Visitors Gallery. For those coming from out of town, the visitor center offers
internet access for email and other online activities.
The visitor center is located inside the Market Arcade
Building at 617 Main Street and is open Monday through Friday from 9AM to 5PM,
and on Saturdays from 10AM to 2PM. To contact the visitor center please call 716.852.BFLO, 800.BUFFALO or email
