Family Businesses in Buffalo Niagara

We know the age-old saying that blood is thicker than water. Perhaps that’s why some of our favorite small businesses just happen to be a family business.

Walking Main Street in Williamsville

Williamsville is a great place to visit in Buffalo Niagara. The population is culturally diverse, the village is historical, and the food is great!

Tour Niagara Wine Country

Whether you’re a wine enthusiast or just someone looking for a new adventure this fall, there is a hidden gem up north that we highly recommend you explore. Niagara Wine Country, near Lake Ontario, has a climate that boasts dozens of unique wineries and spans Western New York.

A Visit to the North Buffalo Neighborhood

Whether you’re from the area or visiting from out of town, you may be wondering what your entertainment and dining options are in the North Buffalo neighborhood. We’ve got your back! Here are a few ideas for you to consider as you plan out your itinerary.

Our Take on Steak

It’s the perfect time of year to enjoy a nice juicy steak. And there’s no better place to enjoy a steak than a classic steakhouse. The 716 knows how to make scrumptious cuisine and there’s no exception when it comes to steak.

Great Breakfast Stops!

Breakfast is by far the most important meal of the day. Without breakfast, I’m just a hangry jerk until lunch! In this week’s blog I’ll highlight some of my favorite spots to fuel up for the day.

Apples of My Eye

Eating Apples in Buffalo Niagara It’s officially October which means it’s apple season! Apples not only keep the doctor away, they are also the quintessential Fall fruit. Can you imagine Fall without apple cider and apple pie?!
