  • Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park
    Contra-rotating blades once powered by a Porsche engine sit peacefully on a U.S. Marine Corps helicopter. Nearby, a World War II seafaring destroyer with nine battle stars to its name takes its place among tanks such as the 22.3-ton tank that served in the Korean Conflict. Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park's curators have amassed many such machines designed for??and veterans of??combat. Their numerous exhibits feature relics such as the only guided-missile cruiser on display in America. The role women have played in the military earns its own exhibit, as does memorabilia of former POWs and a collection of favorite cobbler recipes from WWII to present-day generals.

  • Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House Complex
    An exquisite example of Wright's ranch houses, the Martin Complex was commissioned by Darwin D. Martin of the Buffalo-based Larkin Soap Company in 1902. With this deal, you'll get an extensive guided tour of the historical property, beginning with an examination of the exterior of the main Martin House while your guide discusses the intricacies of Wright's architectural style. Since the interior of the Martin House is currently closed for renovations, the tour has expanded to include several other parts of the complex, starting with a walk down the stunning Pergola, a 100-foot walkway connecting the Martin House to the conservatory. There, a lush indoor garden awaits, showcasing Wright's uncanny ability to combine interior spaces with nature without simply stapling algae to the walls. Then, take a walk inside the first floor of the Barton House, the first building constructed on the complex in 1903. The tour continues with a visit to the first floor of the Gardener's Cottage, built in 1909 and exemplifying Wright's concept of small, affordable housing. Lasting about an hour and a half, the tour includes plenty of walking, so visitors should be sure to bring comfortable shoes.
