On our last day in New York, we got up and decided to explore Buffalo some more before heading back to Rochester to catch our flight home. We went to Canalside which is pretty area that runs along the Buffalo River. There were lots of people there kayaking and enjoying the beautiful day.
The “World’s Largest Rubber Duck” found a home on the Buffalo River for a few days, which obviously was quite eye catching. The bright yellow, vinyl duck rises six stories tall and weighs 1 ton! She was there for a 3 day visit during the Buffalo Maritime Festival.
We spent a couple hours walking around the Waterfront and then wanted to drive around to see more of Buffalo.
We drove by the Sahlen Field, home of the Buffalo Bisons, a Minor League Baseball team – Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. This is actually picture of the pub entrance, which I think now is called Consumer’s Pub at the Park.
We drove over to Bills Stadium aka New Era Field located in Orchard Park, New York, the southern portion of the Buffalo metro area. The stadium opened in 1973 and is the home of the NFL Buffalo Bills.
On our way back to Rochester we stopped in Hamburg to see if we could find something to eat. No luck there, but we did stop here for some pics. Hamburg is a town in Erie County, New York, named after the city of Hamburg in Germany.

We also ate Chinese for lunch and on to the airport. This is the Clock of Nations, which I thought was really interesting. It apparently was removed in 2017 because of renovations. There are no plans to display it as it now sits in storage. That is sad!
What a great little trip is was! We hope to get back to Rochester in the future. So much to see and do. We’d really like to explore more areas, Five Finger Lakes, Washington Grove, Susan B. Anthony House, etc.
