3 Things to Do in Buffalo, NY During Your Next Home Cleaning

 

Getting your house cleaned? Wonderful! Take advantage of your new-found free time and do something that brings you joy… like indulging yourself (and your children!) in fun, relaxing, and rejuvenating activities. Wondering what to do in Buffalo? Consider these three activities:

 #1 Chill out in a Float Tank

In just one hour, you’ll experience the ultimate in serenity! A truly unique experience, a float tank relaxes you through buoyancy and water immersion, leaving you rejuvenated and refreshed.  

Never been in a float tank? Worried about claustrophobia? This writer (the quintessential claustrophobe) had no problems with the small space, about the size of a twin mattress. And there’s no need to even shut the tank lid if you prefer a more open environment. 

The completely weightless feeling of floating works wonders for both physical and mental health. Floating transports you into an incredibly deep, dream-like state which is perfect if you experience stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, or other mental health issues. People also use floating to treat physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, injury recovery, or any other chronic pain issues. 

Silver Essence Floating Spa, in Williamsville, NY (right next to Buffalo), offers individual float sessions for $65 per hour ($60 for your first time.) Indulge yourself even further with a 30-minute sauna prior to your float. Or why not book a combo package of both experiences for $85 ($75 your first time)? We know you’ll love how you feel afterward… especially when you go home to a perfectly clean house! 

Spots can usually be booked with just 24-hour notice or, occasionally, you can even call for a same-day appointment. Silver Essence Floating Spa is located at 6 Los Robles Street, Williamsville, NY. Book your appointment online at www.silveressencefloatingspa.com or by calling 716-568-7985.

Treat yourself to lunch or an early dinner after your float at D’Avolio. Serving pizza, salads, antipasto, and sandwiches, they are conveniently located at 5409 Main Street in Williamsville, NY. They can be reached at 716-919-1201 and they are open until at least 8 PM every day, except for Sundays when they are closed. 

 #2 Year-Round Enjoyment at Buffalo Botanical Gardens

Surrounding yourself with plants, gardens, and trees is a great way to unwind and ground yourself… and you can go with your children, by yourself, or with your BFF or significant other.

Open year-round, the Botanical Gardens offers an expansive indoor conservatory with diverse surrounding grounds. The Botanical Gardens consist of beautifully interconnected, indoor greenhouses which are perfect for those cold winter days or rainy spring afternoons.  

Embark on a self-guided tour throughout the greenhouses, where you’ll experience a variety of unique exhibits, including an Asian Rainforest, Florida Everglades, and even a Panamanian Cloud Forest. If the weather is nice, be sure to enjoy the outdoor seasonal gardens that are open and free to the public. Visitors usually spend between 45 minutes and two hours on the self-guided tour. 

Parking is free at the Botanical Gardens. Entrance fees for adults are $14 per person, free for those under 2 years old, $7.50 for ages 3-12 and $12.50 for ages 13-18. The Botanical Gardens are open from 10 AM to 4 PM on most days. Online reservations are required in advance at www.buffalogardens.com

The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is located at 2655 South Park Avenue, Buffalo, NY. They can be reached at 716-827-1584.

#3 Take a Stroll (or Ski!) in Nature at Chestnut Ridge Park

With over 1,000 acres of land, this is a nature enthusiast’s dream. And (can you believe it?) it’s just 25 minutes from Buffalo!

This area is perfect for adults, with or without children in tow. In the winter, activities abound – snowshoeing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, sledding and tobogganing, to name just a few. In the summer, biking, hiking, disc golf, softball, tennis, and picnicking are visitor favorites. 

While there, hike the miles of beautiful paths and connect with nature. Be sure to check out the Eternal Flame Falls, which is a waterfall gorge featuring a natural gas-powered flame in a small grotto.
