Less than a month away from 2017 EACE Annual Conference! As my third conference, I am excited to reconnect with friends and colleagues and continue learning best practices and trends in our industry. As someone who lived in the Buffalo/Niagara area for six years (undergraduate and graduate school at the University at Buffalo – GO BULLS!), I am even more excited to return to the area for a few days and catch up with old friends and visit a few of my favorite spots. As we count down, pack our bags, and make our lists, see below for a few recommendations on fun things to do in Niagara Falls.
Cave of the Winds
Feeling adventurous? Journey down into the Niagara Gorge for a one-of-a-kind view of the Falls with the Cave of the Winds tour. Gear up in a souvenir rain poncho and sandals for the full experience. Learn more here.
Bring your passport and get a different view of the falls from Canada! Soar 175 feet above Niagara Falls for an amazing view. Check it out here.
Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls USA
Leave extra room in your bags! Take a quick 15-minute car/cab ride to the premier outlet shopping destination in Niagara Falls, NY, serving customers from Buffalo and upstate New York with 200+ designer brands. Learn more here.
Maid of the Mist
The obvious choice! Hop on board and experience Niagara Falls. Hear the waves, see the sights, and feel the mist! Learn more here.
The not-so-obvious choice. Visiting from out of town? Make the most of your time in Western New York and explore Buffalo, a quick 30-minute drive from the falls. With diverse neighborhoods, rich culture, and delicious food (they call ‘em “wings,” not “Buffalo wings!”), there is plenty to do and see in Buffalo. Check out the visitor’s page and explore neighborhoods like Elmwood Village.
Of course, there is plenty more to do while in town for 2017 EACE Annual Conference, but this is a good start. What will you do while in town? Share your plans and ideas on Twitter using #EACE. See you soon and Cheers to 20 Years!
