my husband and I plan to spend a short visit in Buffalo in May of this year. We will be staying in Niagara for 2 nights, and then crossing back into the US early Saturday morning. Our train for Chicago leaves Sunday night at midnight. That gives us almost a weekend to see/hear/taste the sights! We like walks - urban, and parklands - music, food, generally are quite easily pleased.We are mid 40s, and tho not on a very tight budget, it will be the end of a 2 week holiday, so funds may be a little low!! We will be relying on walking/public transport/cabs. I would be very grateful for any advice you could offer.......
1) Where to stay; downtown or a little further out? Which hotel?
2) I want to see City Hall - is it open weekends for tours- is there any other places nearby that I shouldn't miss?
3) I have a couple of walks planned - around Allentown and Elmwood - would it be better to do one rather than the other, or are both areas near enough to combine the walks?
4)Any ideas to fill in Sunday afternoon/evening especially, as we will check out of our room at mid-day, and hopefully store our luggage there, until we gat a cab to Depew station later that night.
Many thanks -in advance-for your help
