Onward to Buffalo!

Buffalo, New York skyline.

Make plans now to be part of the 27th National Veterans Golden Age Games in Buffalo, NY, May 30 - June 4, 2013. Buffalo known as the Queen City, due to being the second largest city in New York or the Nickel City, as named in the early part of the 20th century from having the appearance of a bison on the back of the Indian Head nickel, is one of the top cities in America for architecture, home to the world renowned Albright-Knox Art Gallery, sports teams and a beautiful waterfront. Enjoy the architectural works of Frank Lloyd Wright, Olmstead park system and great fishing on Lake Erie and the mighty Niagara River.

Also known as The City of Good Neighbors, Buffalonians are friendly, helpful people. It was the first city in America to have electric street lights because of the plentiful hydroelectric power made possible by nearby Niagara Falls.

The region is rich with Native American history and a melting pot of ethnic cultures.

Get ready for great competition, festivals, and food. Shuffle off to Buffalo with your family and friends in 2013!
