Cattaraugus County Reviews

A quaint county in Western New York close to Buffalo, NY with rolling hillsides and country charm. White water rafting, hiking, vineyard tours and museums are just a few of the activities you will find here. In August, there's a county fair filled with family fun and entertainment.

This a small yet personable area. Everyone knows each other and share a smile while passing by in public areas. This simple gesture of a smile can change one's day.
The county is very small with very little to do within a 30 minute drive. The roads are also terrible and need to be fixed.
