Amherst State Park is the perfect suburban area for taking an afternoon stroll, as part of the park is wooded and deer are abundant in the area and can often be seen frolicking through the park’s meadows.

Running along the Erie Canal, the Amherst Canalway Trail is a 5.2 -mile long trail that’s used by locals for biking, while the Glen Oak Golf Course in East Amherst is perfect for avid golfers looking to spend some time perfecting their swings. Taking a short trip into Buffalo, guests with an appreciation for modern art can view hundreds of contemporary art pieces at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and adults of legal drinking age can spend a night dancing, listening to good music, and having drinks with friends at Club Marcella.
