When we got there we found it’s actually the main house plus two smaller houses.
A local restoration society looks after the Martin House complex and runs regular informative tours.
Naval and Military Park
At Canalside there is an impressive museum.
You can look over three WW2 vessels; A cruiser, destroyer, and a submarine.
In the museum building I was also interested to find a model of USS Wolverine one of only two Fresh Water Paddle Steamer Aircraft Carriers.
You can also take a pleasant boat tour from Canal Side, which takes you along the canal, and around the only Marina that is shaped like a Buffalo (Don’t believe me then search Google Maps for ‘Erie Basin Marina’)
Some Things We Missed
It was only as we were in the Taxi on the way back to the airport we were told not only could we visit this impressive city hall; we could get a free lift to an observation deck on the top floor.
Exploring the many other Art Deco Buildings in the city
Visiting the Anchor Bar, where the world famous Buffalo Wings were invented in 1964.
Its great to be able to get views like the one in the photo.
Some people like to lean against the side of the plane to sleep. (Although I have never found that much benefit)
You won’t have people asking you if they can get passed.
On lots of trans ocean flights there is not a lot to see for the majority of the flight.
For long haul the flight attendants want the window blinds closed for the majority of the flight. (They say its so people can see the video screens better. . . . I think they just want everyone to either sleep, or be absorbed in the movies, so there is less for them to do)
If you want to go to the toilet, or just stretch your legs you have to get someone else to move.
My Travel Hacks
Well I always go for an aisle seat when travelling long haul, but aim for a window seat for flights less than about 3 hours.
If you want the clearest view its best to avoid the side of the airplane that will be in the sun.
Use Seat Guru to avoid a seat directly over the wing.
