Our Lady of Victory Basilica

Reviewed By Utah-Indy - Helotes, Texas

Haven’t been here in our 30 years! I remember the wonderful Christmas Midnight masses. The building itself is architecturally amazing inside and outside. Truly a national treasure. We arrived after the museum and gift shop downstairs closed at 4pm. Be respectful when you enter.

Penn Dixie Fossil Park & Nature Reserve

Reviewed By JARB98 - Niagara Falls, New York

I purchased a Groupon for the Penn Dixie and we decided to use it this past Sunday. When we arrived, I really wasnt sure that it was going to be worth it, certainly didn't look like much, BUT WOW... Our "guide" who showed us what to do was nice, knowledgeable and spent time going over hammer to rock techniques...
We left with a bag full of fossils.
Just be sure to sunblock, there isn't any shade.

Eternal Flame Falls

Reviewed By FlightTime27 - Lake Grove, New York

This is a cool natural feature to see. It's a relatively short hike, maybe 20-25 minute walk. It's a little slippery in spots, but you'll know where. I think it's a great idea to stop by earlier in the morning or maybe before dinner-time so there are fewer people. We went with a group of 3 around 2pm on a Sunday. There were about 20 cars and 10 people taking photos around the flame- not bad at all.

The Campus, designated a National Historic Landmark district (NHL) in 1986, contains nine of the original 14 structures including the Inn, the Chapel, the Print Shop, the Furniture Shop, and the Copper Shop. You are invited to come visit and discover the rebirth of the Roycroft Campus as if Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters never left.

Great historical tour of the campus and Elbert Hubbard. How ingenious he was in getting the vompanies he worked for to the top. Unfortunately pride and his down zipper it can be assumed, was his downfall. However great history tour. Places to sit were in abundance during the tour

The Fairgrounds

Reviewed By jimbo5454 - Cape Coral, Florida

I've been going to the Fair for over 70 years . This year we decided on Channel 4 day because of the weather and the $4. Admission and $4. Parking (usually $10. and $5.) This is a great place to go for all because of the wide avenue of things to do from rides , games , shows , exhibits , animals , etc. Was even a free show at night with John Conlee and The Bellamy Brothers. Had to leave early because of the BB drummer being way to loud but that was the only negative , other than eating to much with all the deep fried goodies. The Fair area was really spruced up this year with new areas , a lot of flowers and it seemed like widened walkways. Anyway we really enjoyed our day and to top it off we stopped at the Hamburg Gaming Casino (on sight ) on the way out . Wife and I got free play and with it I won almost enough to cover our day at the Fair. So if your new to the area or live here , go visit the Fair in .Hamburg ,NY Great way to spend the day.

Reviewed By Darlene K - Hamburg, New York

The owner, June, truly believes in bringing her customers unique experiences. My friend decided to try the Sudatonic infrared body wrap and loved the session. I opted for the silk peel facial and my skin felt very smooth afterwards. June was a delight to speak with, friendly, outgoing and genuinely concerned for her customers to enjoy the best experience ever. I highly recommend her aesthetic boutique.

Ralph Wilson Stadium

Home field of the Buffalo Bills

Reviewed By travelingbeachbum00 - Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

If you can say one thing about Buffaloians it is that they love the Bills! What a great experience being in the stadium when the Bills are playing...better when they are winning! It is an open air stadium which baffles me since this is Buffalo after all. SO you are exposed to the elements but the enthusiasm of the crowds helps. There have been some nice upgrades so all in all a good experience.
