Buffalo and its neighbouring towns are a haven for Canadians for doing shopping especially during long weekends on the Canadian side of the border. Canadians from as far west as Oshawa cross the border via one of the three bridges viz. Lewiston, Rainbow (over the Niagara Falls) and Peace (at Buffalo) bridge to shop, have a hearty meal of famous Buffalo wings, and / or visit Niagara Falls at the New York side.
