When you think about Western New York, where does your mind immediately shift? If you are one who typically has food and drink on your brain, then maybe Mighty Taco, chicken wings, birch beer, or Loganberry come to mind (as well they should!). Perhaps you are a person who quickly remembers natural beauty, in which case Niagara Falls could come crashing to your brain. Often times, though, it’s the not-as-popular restaurants or landmarks that can leave the longest impression. Take a look at some of these Western New York attractions that you might not know about but that you would be sure to remember if you get the chance to experience.
