The word is out on Buffalo – a low cost of living and an array of affordable apartments for rent makes this city accessible for any budget. Buffalo was one of the first cities ever in existence to benefit from light powered by the Niagara River, earning its nickname “City of Light.” Today, it’s a hotbed for innovators, entrepreneurs, artists, and anyone with a can-do attitude.

There’s absolutely no shortage of great things to keep you occupied in your off-hours. Residents enjoy cheering on the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field, jamming to live music at Canalside, or conversing over a pint at one of the many local breweries in the city. Buffalo’s environment also adds to its charm, with lush parks and beautiful views of Lake Erie from almost any location in town.

The city’s affluent past has left behind numerous examples of historic architecture, from grand buildings in Downtown to Victorian mansions of the 19th century. Events are held in Buffalo all year long, such as Taste of Buffalo and Allentown Art Festival.
