Car necessary, although not impossible to walk less than a mile into pedestrian friendly village with countless amenities and conveniences. But please be alert and use caution as there is a short stretch with no sidewalks on a two lane road. May be better to drive into the village and park if you would like to walk and wander up and down Main Street or the couple dozen side streets lined with beautiful 100 year old homes, large shade trees and dozens of local businesses.
Less than one mile and less than a 5 minute drive to the center of pedestrian and bicycle friendly Village of East Aurora. Home to the Historic Roycroft Inn, Explore and More Children's Museum, Ghost Walks, President Millard Filmore's original law office, three town parks, one of which has a large community swimming pool with children's wading pool, multiple shops, art galleries, restaurants and movie theater. Check out the East Aurora Chamber of Commerce site and be amazed at how much there is to do locally without having to leave village/town limits!

You will be amazed and your kids wont be bored as the older ones will be able to get around themselves to the many ice cream stands and fast food restaurants finding plenty of things to do. Fall through Springtime there is even a covered outdoor ice rink with public skating!
Five to ten minutes from Knox Farm State Park, Emery Park, Chestnut Ridge, Hunters Creek Park and Majors Town Park as well as the Cazenovia Creek Nature Sanctuary, 25 minutes from downtown Buffalo, Woodlawn Beach State Park (fabulous Lake Erie Sunsets!) , Kissing Bridge Ski Resort, and Walden Galleria Mall. Approximately 45 minutes from Niagara Falls to the north and Ellicotville (Holiday Valley 4 season resort) to the south.

Other Things to Note

listing is just a short drive to all that the visitor and pedestrian-friendly Village of East Aurora has to offer. It is home to a dozen or more locally owned restaurants with original character (Italian, Chinese, Thai, American, Mexican etc.), famous Buffalo favorites like Mighty Taco and Jim's Steakout (both open up until 2am on weekends), and several standard chains such as Pizza Hut, Tim Horton's (coffee lovers favorite), McDonald's and Yotality. Art Galleries, Vidlers (an historic old-fashioned five and dime) as well as many other opportunities to browse shops and boutiques along historic Main Street are waiting for your visit. Vera Bradley? Alex and Annie? We have that too. Home of the National Historic Landmark status Roycroft Campus where Elbert Hubbard founded the Arts and Crafts Movement at the turn of the 20th century and the Original Site of President Millard Filmore's law office. If you stay more than one night, there is plenty of Americana to be found right here! Just let me know what you're looking for and I'll help you find it.

For the outdoor and exercise enthusiast there are almost a dozen nearby parks. It is only five to ten minutes from here to Knox Farm State Park, Emery Park, Chestnut Ridge, Hunters Creek Park and Majors Town Park as well as the Cazenovia Creek Nature Sanctuary, 25 minutes to downtown Buffalo, Woodlawn Beach State Park (fabulous Lake Erie Sunsets!) , Kissing Bridge Ski Resort, and Walden Galleria Mall. Approximately 45 minutes from Niagara Falls to the north and Ellicotville (Holiday Valley 4 season resort) to the south.
If you are looking for a really great gym with all kinds of equipment and classes, you can get a one day pass at EAFitness less than a 1/2 mile away. I can also send you a price adjust to include daily, weekly or monthly gym/yoga studio membership in your rates. Please ask.

Suzanne

East Aurora, New York, United States · Member since November 2010

Active lifestyle: running, hiking, biking, kayaking, camping.
Recently launched my second career as a small business owner running a Kayak Tour, Lesson and Rental business called Wild Buffalo Tours.
Love living in Western New York but MUST escape every spring to get away from the dreary grey skies and bleak landscape!
I have had the great opportunity to share others vacation homes as a renter for the past 30 years and am a very considerate respectful guest.
I am happy to be able to share my home with those like minded people who want to experience a community as a local as opposed to as a tourist.
