Coming from out of town?

Home2 Suites by Hilton Amherst Buffalo

3820 Ridge Lea Rd, Amherst, NY 14228

8 minute drive

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Tonawanda

2400 Niagara Falls Blvd, Tonawanda, NY 14150

Buffalo is gorgeous in the summer! There is so much to do, and so much good food to eat. Here are some local places to get you started...

Local attractions:

Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House


Niagara Falls

Coming with kids? Explore and More: The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Children’s Museum


Ghada Have It

Falafel Bar 

India Gate

PIZZA... oh yeah, we've got good pizza here. Try Bocce's or LaNova.

How can you come to Buffalo without getting wings? While Google searches might lead you to believe that Duff's and the Anchor Bar are the best in chicken wings, those places are more for tourists! Try out Gabriel's Gate in Allentown or Bar Bill. Real Buffalo wings come with blue cheese, not ranch. ;)

It's no secret that Kenzie loves donuts, and donut lovers coming to town HAVE to stop by Donut Kraze. Right down the street from the studio on Main St in Tonawanda!

We can't wait to see you and dance with you with Aziza in Buffalo!
