Demure small-town charm

Just under 50 miles from Minneapolis, Buffalo is a rather demure town that packs quite a punch given its small stature. Booking a Buffalo vacation rental is one way to experience small-city life in a big way. That’s because the area has so much going on: an arts scene, shopping, beautiful scenery, and opportunities to explore what makes Minnesota such a natural wonder. If you'd like to be within proximity of a big city but steer clear of the actual bigness of it all, this is one way to do just that.

Going outside? Head to Buffalo

Major props if you booked your Buffalo vacation rental hoping to spend some time outside. You will do plenty of that here! Regional parks offer excellent opportunities for picnicking, camping, and fishing. Spend some time wandering along peaceful Lake Pulaski with the family before venturing into the bustling shopping and dining area. You’ll come across a blend of more than 50 retailers specializing in local goods and antiques. Nearby are plenty of local delis and eateries that offer everything from fresh seafood to dessert.

What do a car, a library, and a zoo have in common?

Lest you think you’ll spend all your time outdoors, Buffalo also gives you a chance to delve into history. The Veit Automotive Foundation has been around since the 1990s, providing locals and visitors with a fascinating collection of old cars. The energetic display is reminiscent of a ‘50s drive-in! Don’t leave without paying a visit to Wright County Historical Society, which preserves an impressive collection of artifacts, showcases a small museum, and even features a research library. If you’re up for a little day trip, the famed Minnesota Zoo is about an hour north of Buffalo.

It's snowing. You must be in Minnesota.

It rains, it snows…hey, it’s Minnesota. Of course it snows. But you knew that when you booked that Buffalo vacation rental. On the flip side, if you're in town during summer you’ll be exposed to balmy 80-degree weather and low humidity. On the other hand, winter is known for its brutal chill, with lows dropping to as little as 4 degrees. If single digits don’t scare you and you can totally get down with a little nose-tingling weather, it’s worth the visit during winter, when the area’s magnificent scenery is elevated thanks to the arctic glow of ice.

Beaches and lakes shimmer in Buffalo

At just under 10 square miles, Buffalo has small-town appeal that makes it incredible, especially considering the area’s immense beauty. Lake Pulaski shimmers in the background and gives locals and visitors easy access to the water. Sturges Park offers over 10 acres of land alongside Buffalo Lake. You can even enjoy beach life in Buffalo! Just head to Griffing Park, which borders Lake Pulaski and features a sandy swimming beach perfect for showing off your dive skills. If you’re a forest lover, the leafy Voyageur Environmental Center is half an hour away and overlooks Little Long Lake.
