Things to do with kids in WNY
Jen from Random Daily Thoughts has returned from a vacation, and discusses places in WNY that her little boy would enjoy. She mentions Becker Farms, the Buffalo Zoo, and the Jello museum in Leroy. A commenter suggests the Niagara Aquarium. Good choices, all. Here are my faves - all kid-friendly: 1. Butterfly conservatory near Niagara Falls, ON 2. Well... Niagara Falls, ON and Niagara Falls, NY 3. On a warm day, I love to lie out on the grassy "beach" near Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown 4. A walk in Niagara-on-the-Lake 5. Science Museum of Buffalo 6. Strong Museum in Rochester 7. Window-shopping on Elmwood 8. Thunder Rocks at Allegany State Park 9. Ellicottville 10. Between February and April, you MUST try these pancakes: Arcade Center Farm Pancake House 7298 Route 98 Arcade 585-492-3821 (cash only) 11. Vidler's in East Aurora (and lunch at Tantalus (avoid dinner - service can get slow & surly)) Finally, if you need the scoop on local restaurants, there's fantastic restaurant reviews in the Spree, and Rapaport's got the closest thing to Zagat's in WNY.
