The Elmwood Village, one of America's 10 Best Neighborhoods, as designated by the American Planning Association, and Buffalo/Niagara's most vibrant shopping, dining and cultural district, can be enjoyed year-round. Whether you're already in the neighborhood, elsewhere in Western New York, or visiting from across the border, the Elmwood Village is a wonderful destination.

This is a very unique part of town. One street, number of different little shops, coffee places and restaurants. Good for late morning or early afternoon visit and lunch. Nice houses and architecture. Overall, 1-2 hrs stay lunch included.

Food, clothes, antiques, this large diverse area holds something for everyone. Better in the better weather but still enjoyable on a winter day in Buffalo.

Bad snowy, icy sidewalks prevented us from doing the shopping we had planned. We enjoyed visiting the Co-op and had lunch at Paniera Bread. Too icy to walk to many stores, but did enjoy the ones we visited. Parking is bad.

There are a few stores to shop at. We went Saturday and they only opened at noon. Clothing was mostly expensive.
