Explore Buffalo has created a series of Walking Routes as a public resource for outdoor activity and personal wellness in response to COVID-19. Getting outdoors to walk is a healthy way to stay active and reduce stress and anxiety while engaging in social distancing strategies. Each Walking Route includes architectural and historical points of interest, and is approximately 1.5-2 miles in length, or approximately 3,000-4,000 steps.
As you walk on these routes, or on a route of your own, please share photos with us on Instagram by tagging us @explorebflo or using #explorebuffalo.
While an Explore Buffalo walking tour typically costs $15, these walking routes are being provided as a free community service. You can support Explore Buffalo with an online donation or by purchasing a gift certificate for a future tour.
