Akron is a great place to stay while you are in Buffalo as many of the city’s most popular attractions are within easy driving distance. Two of the most interesting places to explore are the marvelous Buffalo and Erie County Public Library and the fantastic Darien Lake Theme Park. Two other great attractions that are located within a short distance of Akron are the Eastern Hills Mall and Lockport Caves.

Be sure to visit some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make the area such a rewarding holiday destination. Take a tour, admire the architecture or simply enjoy the wonderful artworks at the Iron Island Museum, the Buffalo Arts Studio and the Erie Canal Discovery Center in Lockport. Enjoy seeing the region’s best and brightest strut their stuff at the University At Buffalo Center for the Arts in Amherst.

If the sun is shining get outdoors and enjoy the nearby parks and reserves. Go for a walk in one of the local parks and gardens, which include Hennepin Park.

If you have a passion for golf, head to the Grover Cleveland Golf Course. It's a perfect way to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

See what is in fashion locally and spoil yourself with a new wardrobe in some of the nearby shopping hotspots such as Boulevard Mall in Amherst and the Walden Galleria Mall in Cheektowaga.

Spend an evening high in the stands of Northtown Center at Amherst, Williamsville, cheering on local legends, the Buffalo Jr. Sabres. To endear yourself with the locals, be sure to wear blue and white, the colors of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres.

When it’s time to relax after a long day exploring the charming streets of Akron, check in to one of the area’s convenient accommodation options. Take your pick from the Millennium Airport Hotel Buffalo, Cheektowaga, the Salvatore's Garden Place Hotel, an Ascend Hotel Collection, Williamsville, or the Red Roof Inn Buffalo - Niagara Airport, Bowmansville.
