Recreational, Cultural and Entertainment Opportunities
Situated between Western New York’s major metropolitan centers, Buffalo and Niagara Falls, the Town of Tonawanda offers a great diversity of recreational, cultural and entertainment opportunities.
For scenery, no spot in America, or the world, exceeds the grandeur of the illuminated half-mile-wide Canadian Horseshoe Falls and the 176-foot-high American Falls, which attracts more than 12 million visitors annually.
Some of the most noteworthy cultural institutions include:
Music in a more contemporary vein is frequently featured in nearby music halls, the new HSBC Arena and at summer concerts at Ralph Wilson Stadium and Dunn Tire Park.
The Niagara Frontier boasts numerous historical sites, including several preserved or restored forts. Excellent restaurants and a variety of entertainment facilities abound in and around the town.
