All Wright All Day In Buffalo
Conde Nast Traveler recently spotlighted Buffalo, NY by suggesting it might be the best city to experience Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture (although we would still likely vote Chicago and its suburbs for that particular honor). In preparation for next year's Wright sesquicentennial, Buffalo is offering "All Wright All Day" tour, which takes visitors to five Frank Lloyd Wright-designed sites in a single day; there are also tours specifically for photographers and events for kids. Follow the link to learn more and plan a visit to Buffalo for yourself to see if it indeed has the "Wright" Stuff. Read more.
