Step back in time and see how the American military lived back in 1726.  Old Fort Niagara played a key role in conflicts with Great Britain and France.

Old Fort Niagara hosts more than 100,00 visitors a year. The fort is one of the most popular attractions in the Niagara Falls area which featured the oldest buildings in the Great Lakes.

#1 Buffalo Naval Park

The Buffalo Naval Park is one of the most amazing treasures we have in Western New York. Board and tour ships like the The USS Little Rock, USS Croaker Submarine, and the USS The Sullivanson your own or with a knowledgeable guide.  Children will love sitting at the helm of an actual US Navy Battleship or try the periscope of an authentic submarine.  Have lunch aboard with your family and friends and then stroll through the rest of the park where you'll find vintage jets, personell carries, mini subs, helicopters and more.
