Walking Routes

While we are currently unable to provide our regularly scheduled walking tours, we are providing Walking Routes based on our tours to provide some interest and variety for your walking routine. 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.

Getting outdoors to walk is a healthy way to stay active and reduce stress and anxiety while engaging in social distancing strategies. Please make note of the New York State Department of Health’s Guidance on How to Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19 When Enjoying the Outdoors.

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.
