CodeDaze is a conference dedicated to code, design, development, and everything tech! We will explore the cutting edge tech, best practices, and all things that make our community awesome! Join us at the historic Buffalo Central Library in Downtown Buffalo, NY and become part of this revival of the art of technology!

Things to Do
in Buffalo

check out our curated list of fun activities for you and your fellow attendees.

Across from the Hotel Lafayette is the historic Downtown Branch of the Buffalo and Erie County Library, home of Mark Twain manuscripts, a rare book room, and a LaunchPad Maker Space.

Looking for a place to hang out and get some work done? Checkout CoWork Buffalo.

Are you more the artsy type? Take a look at both the Albright Knox, a modern art museum which happens to be right across the street from the Burchfield Penney Art Center.

Planning a trip to beautiful Niagara Falls? (and you should) you may want to head over to the Canadian side. If so, be sure to bring a passport as it will be necessary when returning to the US side.

Are you a burgeoning architecture buff? Be sure to catch both Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House Complex and Buffalo’s famous art deco City Hall.

FOr a walk on a beautiful day, there’s the Buffalo Naval Park and Canal Side, the Botanical Gardens, the Buffalo Zoo, and the famous Forest Lawn Cemetery.

And Buffalo has the best food and pubs you can imagine! We bet a few will want to check out anchor bar where wings were invented (NOTE: do not order Buffalo Wings! They’re called Chicken Wings). There’s also Fat Bob’s Smokehouse, Liberty Hound, The Allentown District of shops, pubs, and restaurants, and so much more!
