I love how the residents of Kenmore are not judgmental and are very friendly to each other. Kenmore is a close-knit community where everyone is supportive and welcoming of one another. For the most part, the residents are fairly open-minded. I loved growing up in Kenmore!

Nestled between Tonawanda and Buffalo, kenmore is right in the center of everything. Anything you need is just minutes away, including Niagara Falls. Having access to each thruway is also a bonus.
I love this village. It is a great and safe place to live. There are a lot of places nearby as far as things to do and a wonderful park for the children. We are also close to many other little suburbs of Buffalo so nothing is too far away!
