So now that the border is open we here in the Queen City will be opening up our arms and our businesses to help welcome our neighbors to the north. It has been way too long.

Whether it is shopping, taking in a show, concert, or going to a Buffalo Sabres hockey game there are five must-visit places that anyone coming in from Canada needs to visit.

The places are close to The Keybank Center serving up great local cuisine and cold drinks. But be warned, once inside and having a good time you may not want to leave.

Also, you can check to see what you need to do upon coming into the United States or more importantly, eventually leaving to return to the Great White North HERE.

Places To Eat Drink Before The Game

The great thing about all of the above-mentioned is that they are all within walking, rideshare, or rail-ride away from all the action that will be happening at the arena. Inside you will get a true vibe of the city and its people. The food never disappoints, it is truly Buffalo, and the drinks flow like the water over Niagara Falls.
