After traveling more than 3,300 miles through 14 states in 11 days, we arrived in Buffalo, NY a week ago Thursday! We finally have internet and once we get a bit settled in, I plan on sharing our epic road trip here.
Until then, I have lots of questions for the Buffalonians and Western New York aficionados:
What is recommendation for best…
- Fancy dinner out?
- Take out?
- Pizzeria: for dining in? for delivery?
- Park/playground (for a 2 year old)?
- Favorite tourist trap
- Gym/fitness studio? Do you have a barre studio here?
- Summer activity/festival?
- Fall activity/festival?
- Winter activity/festival?
- Spring activity/festival?
- Winery to taste at?
- Wine seller? (Why can’t you just buy wine at the grocery store?! WHY!?)
- Salon? Hair? Nail?
- Dentist? Pediatric dentist?
- Doctor? Pediatrician?
We’re living in Amherst, near the Millard Fillmore Suburban, so extra points for answers around where we live!
Thank you in advance!
It’s official! We’re trading in the grey drizzle of the Seattle area for upstate New York!
Brandon signed the official paperwork this week and come next fall, he’ll be teaching accounting, Michael will be making new friends at a new daycare, and I’ll be spending a lot more time here, on this blog. And on my small business. And working on my real estate license. And, finally, working on even more ideas I have up my sleeve! You’ll just have to keep tuning in to find out!
Since I’ve never left the Seattle-area for more than a couple of weeks at a time, I need your help.
Tell me everything you know about the Buffalo area: favorite restaurants, favorite wineries, favorite spot to see the fall colors, favorite great lake, favorite parks and snow boots, you get my drift. Snow drift. Get it? (For those not in the know, it averages 94″ of snow each year there. That’s nearly EIGHT FEET of snow.)
Tell me all of your tips for moving to a new town. Should I find my new favorite stores and make friends there? Same story but at my new favorite restaurant, wine bar or winery? Should I volunteer?
I’m sad to be leaving my friends and family in Seattle, but nervous and excited about this new adventure. I’m definitely looking forward to spending a lot more time here, with you.
Now, we’re off to shuffle off to Buffalo!
