Buffalo Botanical GardensWhen it’s cold outside or the skies are gray, a trip to the Buffalo Botanical Gardens offers an uplifting change of scenery. Tucked away in the South Park neighborhood of South Buffalo, the glass-domed building—which is actually 12 interconnected greenhouses—features an array of tropical fauna, towering palm trees, orchids, and an aquatic garden, among several other displays. Stroll through the series of beautiful rooms on your own, or take a guided tour to learn more about the unusual plants and the gardens themselves. In the summer, you can head outdoors to explore several smaller gardens and an arboretum, or attend fun events like yoga nights, live concerts, art sales, and more.
