The family owned restaurants in this area are excellent! From small burger stands to elegant fine dining, there is always somewhere new to try. There is also a diversity of different ethnic options to try. I have not personally been to any of the nightclubs or bars in the city, but i have heard that they are great.

We experience all four seasons here. Spring, summer and fall are pretty average, but the winters are definitely worth noting. To those who have never experienced a winter here in Western New York, the sheer amount of snowfall and low/negative temperatures can be quite shocking. Last winter we reached a record high of over 7 feet of snow. That being said, the winters can take some getting used to. However, there is no shortage of activities during the cold months. Skiing, snowboarding, tubing, sledding, ice fishing, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing are some of our favorite winter pass times. After a year or two, residents generally adjust to the harshness of the weather.
Small businesses in the village of Hamburg are great! The owners of the shops are extremely friendly and will not hesitate to take time out of their days to help you find what you need or custom order something for you. I have never had a problem finding anything in this area.
