47. Buffalo, New York
Why go: Buffalo is an easy 20-minute drive from Niagara Falls, which is less crowded and a little cheaper in the winter. If you’re lucky, you just might catch it when it’s frozen. In Buffalo itself, you can try riding ice bikes—crafted by Buffalo locals and General Welding and Fabricating. They have a stainless steel frame with blades that let you cycle along the ice at Canalside, a 33,000-square-foot frozen rink built on a replica of the Erie Canal.
Where to stay: The Roycroft Inn was built in 1895 and now has National Historic Landmark status. It’s full of original and reproduced furnishings from the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
