Take advantage of our art galleries, history and science museums, zoo and a botanical garden, theaters, jazz clubs, music groups, philharmonic orchestra, and professional football, hockey, and baseball teams. Plus, the Artpark, Chautauqua, and Niagara-on-the-Lake festivals combine with other special events to enrich Western New York’s cultural and intellectual life.


Scores of great restaurants cater to, ethnic, gourmet, health food, and nouvelle cuisine as well as down-home American and fast food tastes. Indulge and enjoy!


For those who love the outdoors, the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario beaches provide swimming and boating right in our backyard! Cross-country ski trails are everywhere in suburban Buffalo, and downhill ski slopes are only an hour’s drive away. The Genesee River Gorge, the Finger Lakes, and the Southern Tier woods and waterways also offer nearby outdoor recreation year-round. Adventure of another kind can always be found at the Darien Lake and Niagara Falls theme parks.


Buffalo’s metropolitan area bus system serves the Daemen College campus, and the Buffalo subway runs from downtown to Main Street -- less than a mile away from Daemen.
