Sunday is the last day of the weekend for many, but there’s no reason to treat it like bad news. Sunday is still a day off, and there are plenty of things to do to make Sunday a fun day, especially in the Buffalo, New York area. Here are a few ideas for your next Sunday “Funday.”
Sunday Brunch. Treat family, friends, or yourself to a delicious brunch at one of the Buffalo area’s fine restaurants. Take a ride north to Lockport’s Tuscarora Inn for their buffet brunch (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) featuring cold and hot foods, desserts, and more. Head downtown to Trattoria Aroma for a la carte menu items like stuffed French toast, Caprese Panini, and salmon and scrambled eggs; grab a pitcher of Bloody Marys or Mimosas for you and your friends while you’re there.
A day at the Museum. Add a little culture to your life on Sunday with a stop at one of the Buffalo area’s fine museums and galleries. Take your pick from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (1285 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo), the Buffalo Museum of Science (1020 Humboldt Pkwy. in Buffalo), the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society (25 Nottingham Ct. in Buffalo), and many more.
The Bills make me wanna… Buffalo is a sports town, so get out and support your Buffalo Bills on Sundays at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park. From the thrill of the tailgate to the last-minute theatrics, the Bills draw in big crowds through thick or thin.
A little wine? The beauty of the Buffalo area is that we’re not that far away from a lot of wine – just visit one of the wine trails in our neighboring counties on a Sunday afternoon. TheNiagara Wine Trail in Niagara and Orleans Counties has 13 member wineries, while the Chautauqua-Lake Erie Wine Trail features 21 wineries and vineyards. Among the wine trails in the Finger Lakes region: Keuka Lake Wine Trail and its eight wineries, and Seneca Lake Wine Trail with 35 wineries. There’s enough wine in this region to keep you busy for a year of Sunday Fundays.
Take a walk in the park. Buffalo has a number of parks and bike paths for a leisurely Sunday stroll. Central to Buffalo are the Olmstead Parks – Delaware, Cazenovia, Riverside, South, Front, and Martin Luther King Jr. Parks. Featuring playgrounds, bike paths, gardens, picnic shelters, and golf course – among many other amenities – you can easily make a day out of “a day at the park.”
