It’s a thing now. Heading out beyond the ‘burbs and in to *gasp* the country to take pics in the sunflower fields. Specifically in Sanborn, NY. We all are on year 2 for making this an annual end-of-summer trip…so why not check out the best of the best up north once you get that super perfect angle with a VSCO filter shot? We’ve got the deets for ya, guys.
So you’re in Sanborn…uhhh, now what?
All these selfies make me hungry. Here are some must-eat joints nearby:
Lewiston, 20 minutes from the sunflowers.
The Silo: on the water, kid friendly, ice cream, eat outside. More selfies.
Cask and Cow: burgers. The end. Kid friendly.
Brickyard Pub: BBQ and then a really good nap. In the village, so make sure you walk around the shops afterward. Yes to kids.
Water Street Landing: right on the river with a great view, drinks, eat outside, live music. Kids in the right condition.
Wilson, 15 minute drive.
Woodcock Brothers Brewery: beer, kid friendly. You’re happy now, I bet.
Sunset Grill: patio, drinks, good for kids. Tell Chad the bartender Lindsay sent you.
The Wilson House: so happy this is restored. Check out this 1844 home-turned-restaurant in the center of town.
Lockport, 13 minute drive.
Steak, Stone, and Sushi: cook on a hot rock. You’ll be surprised. Kids can go- we took Chloe and she had a hoot.
Lock 34: a good ol’ staple and the same place Beau and I met (previous name and owner). Music, kid friendly.
Danny Sheehan’s: steak and potatoes. So good. Where everybody knows your name.
Aguacates: Mexican, baby.
Ennis’ West End Tavern: Seafood. Meat. Hearty plates. Cannot go wrong at all here.
Ugh, I’m exhausted from smiling so much. I need a coffee:
Lewiston: Orange Cat Coffee
Wilson: Wilson Brew
Well, I packed the kids up and now I guess I drive home? Nope:
Niagara Zipper– zipline along the Erie Canal! Located in Lockport
Ice Bumper Cars– Also in Lockport- you haven’t seenthese yet because this is the only place in WNY to do it!
What other kind of fun things can we do?:
Wine Tours– figure out a plan to hit some of the local Niagara County Wine Trail spots- vineyard selfies are cool, too. (drive safely)
Stop at local farm stands! They’re everywhere up there!
Spa time at Niagara Crossing (formerly Barton Hill Spa)- check it out online to get a little spa time in Lewiston.
**check all sites for times of businesses before you drive somewhere!
