Home of the Buffalo wing and so much more. While the locals might not be able to brag about terrific weather they sure can boast on all the unique places their city has to offer. Just 30 minutes away is Niagara Falls. Not only is Niagara a huge tourist spot but also a neat town featuring its own Little Italy. However, the Canadian view of the falls is much better if you don't mind paying $20 for parking. You should definitely pack a jacket and a camera if you visit, but also be sure to bring your appetite. Niagara and Buffalo are jam packed with fantastic restaurants and bars. The best aspect of this abundance of eateries is they are all unique local joints with their own flair and style.

These local gems take advantage of Buffalo's architectural history as well as the staple cornerstones to the Buffalo diet; pizza, beef on weck, and of course Buffalo wings. While I hear the summertime in Buffalo is very nice and fun, if you get a change to visit during the NHL playoffs when the Sabres are doing well you can experience hockey like few south of Canada ever will. The Pearl Street Brewery is as good of a place to watch a sporting event as I've been to. Great atmosphere and TV setup set the stage for good food and drink. Home of the Beer Tube, 100oz of fresh brewed glory, Pearl Street is where the fanatics go to watch their Sabres. A little warning; when the Sabres score, be prepared for the air horns.

Toronto, just a short 2-hour drive from Buffalo lays Canada's mini-New York with a European feel.
Niagara
This little big city has a ton of things to do but is small enough that you can experience the city in a day. The Rogers Centre (home of the Blue Jays) is a neat place to catch a ball game. The dome does not have the historic feel of a Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, or Wrigley Field but might boast a more fan-friendly environment. Thanks to the convertible-like roof the Blue Jays always play in perfect weather and the design of the seating makes you feel like your closer to the action. Though the Rogers Centre is located in the Southwest corner of downtown, you can still easily walk most of downtown if the weather is nice. We also found the cabs and trolley system to be very reasonably priced. Toronto's Little Italy and China Town sections are not near what you think of when compared to New York's, but there are plenty of neat restaurants, bars, shops, and music clubs to find entertainment. As was true for Buffalo is true for Toronto, ignore the initial impression of places and go with your gut. The best places to eat and drink are the eccentric hole-in-a-wall joints. Toronto is worth a weekend trip for anyone who likes the NYC but would prefer less hassle, though I would definitely recommend a trip in the summer.
