Went there on a major shopping trip. This place has it all. Spent hours there and still didn't see it all. My kids were crazy for the stores as a number of them are unavailable in Canada. Ate across the mall at Olive Garden (was awesome) but I would try the Cheesecake Factory next time. Looked great and is very highly rated. One thing caught me a little off guard. There is a significant Security presence everywhere. Mall staff and a number of police officers. I'm sure you get used to it but just caught me a little unawares. Not a problem. I'd go back in a minute. If you're a sports fan, the Dicks sports was awesome. Lots of parking too and this was a clear and busy Saturday.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin D. Martin House Complex

The Martin House Complex (Buffalo, NY, 1903-05) exemplifies Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie House ideal and ranks as one of his finest residential works. Designed for Larkin Soap Company executive, Darwin D. Martin, the complex is a one-of-a-kind composition consisting of the main Martin House, the smaller Barton House, a carriage house with chauffeur’s quarters and stables, a glass-roofed conservatory linked to the main house by a 100-foot pergola, and a gardener’s cottage integrated architectural masterwork. Tours explore the buildings, surrounding landscape, and an extensive collection of art glass and furnishings, all designed by Wright, which together form a totally integrated architectural masterwork. We welcome you to this National Historic Landmark.

Being from Buffalo and surrounded by Frank LLoyd Wright, I take great architecture for granted. I’ve seen many FLW projects all over the US but this Darwin Martin House has everything beat, no contest. I have not been to the complex since it first started. To see everything as it is now was amazing. I loved it!!!

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.

Charles E. Burchfield Nature & Art Center

Reviewed By kwnike13 - Grand Island, New York

This nature center is great for families with young/small children as the trails are not long at all but there are many markers/points of interests to stop and look at. There are also picnic tables and benches throughout the trails so families can stop for a break or have a picnic. There is also a large playground for the kiddos to let their energy out.

Good Tymes South

Reviewed By mjkelly75

Burgers are generally massive & outstanding! Fresh cut fries are awesome and plentiful. Have a fantastic daily lunch special of a "personal" 1 item pizza (Like 10 inches or so) and 6 wings for $8.75. I always end up taking half the pizza home. Tuesdays have a dozen wings for $5.00. Their wings are generally quite good. Nearly always crispy when asked. The only downside is even if you're the only one in the place ordering, it may come in 20 minutes, or it may come after 45 minutes. I don't know why. A couple times I almost left, because I was beyond my hour lunch for work and still hadn't been served...twice I had to ask for it to go. But almsot always very good to great.

Tillman Road Wildlife Management Area

Reviewed By 738debbie - Clarence, New York

This is located within the town of Clarence. Those who take care of the paths and the area in general have done a wonderful job. I visited this area just to take a walk and I was very pleased with the silence and the woods and all the many paths to walk. An escape from the everyday and a five minute ride from home. I'd suggest bug spray during the season. And also rain gear if it should rain. You can spend an hour here without realizing it! And I go there often.
