Explore Buffalo Plans Unique City of Lights Bus Tour

Explore Buffalo Plans Unique City of Lights Bus Tour

At the end of the 19th century, Buffalo was a major American city at the forefront of technological progress. It was also a busy inland port and a railroad hub with heavy industry and state-of-the-art electricity, all of which brought great wealth to the city. These economic and technological developments culminated in 1901 when Buffalo hosted a spectacular world’s fair — the Pan-American Exposition.

Now you can experience Buffalo through the eyes of the narrator of Lauren Belfer’s historical novel, “City of Light,” set in Buffalo at the dawn of the 20th century, when Explore Buffalo offers the City of Lights Bus Tour!
