Spring is just around the corner! The weather is starting to get warmer, and the sun seems to be shining brighter each and every day. If you’ve been hibernating this winter, it may be time to step outside and enjoy the wonderful spring weather. Here are a few great activities in Buffalo to check out this spring:
Go to the Buffalo Zoo:
Isn’t it great to see all of the different animals at the zoo? On a nice spring day, you can take a stroll through the Buffalo Zoo and learn information about some new animals, or head straight to your favorite exhibit to see the animals you love!
Take a Stroll Through Elmwood Village:
An often overlooked part of Buffalo is just how walk-able some of the neighborhoods are (once the snow clears of course). For example, the Elmwood area of Buffalo is a fantastic area to take a stroll through. You can browse some of the local shops or even walk down a connecting side street to look at some of the historical houses. There are also frequently a number of activities around the Elmwood area like Porchfest that keep the neighborhood alive.
See the Cherry Blossoms:
For a short time each year, pink clouds of cherry blossoms come alive and provide parts of Buffalo with beautiful scenery. This year, don’t miss out on the Cherry Blossom Festival taking place on May 5-6. The Japanese Gardens behind the Buffalo History Museum are filled with cherry blossom trees. You can also enjoy them at your own time; just remember that these flowers don’t bloom for long!
Go for a Bike Ride:
In recent years, the city of Buffalo has put an effort into increasing the amount of bike paths have been made all over the city. There are plenty of different bike paths that you can now take to get some exercise and get a view of the city. You can take your bikes and head down to the outer harbor for a nice ride or simply take a few laps around Delaware Park.
