Travel + Leisure (T+L) has pointed to Buffalo as one of America’s favorite cities. In fact, Buffalo was designated at #3, which was a pleasant surprise. The city was noted for its pizza (of course), ice cream (a bit of a surprise), and its collection of Frank Lloyd Wright edifices.
We all know that Buffalo’s pizza is truly one of a kind, especially the cup and char offerings. In recent years, there has been an explosion of ice cream makers, especially in North Buffalo. Apparently word is out that this city is an ice cream lover’s paradise.
Aside from the truly warranted FLW acknowledgement, it was great to see Buffalo Harmony House as the photo used for the esteemed recognition. The inspirational project deserves the accolades.
As for the ranking of #3, T+L says the it based the findings on reader input.
America’s Favorite Places survey is a way for locals to share what their hometowns do best. Readers ranked their hometowns and cities across a range of categories, from the friendliness of the locals to the quality of the pizza.
But to find out which hometown was most loved overall, we took a composite score of all the individual categories, from the top city for things to see and to do, to the one with the most exciting places to eat and drink.
