Sanborn Reviews

5 reviews
All Categories
Sanborn is a small hamlet in the larger town of Lewiston, lying on the Western New York's Canadian border. It is mostly quiet and relatively rural, but there are some modest local accommodations for easy living (small grocery store, a good pharmacy, several chain coffee shops, and plenty of small family restaurants and gas stations). Plenty of nature to see, with the hiking and sightseeing of Niagara Falls within easily drivable distance and with plenty of safe spaces for runs and bikes. The public school system available is of good quality, with large programs for middle and high school education and good extracurricular foundations in music, sports, and art. Sanborn is home to people of many different walks of life, but its diversity is low. The town is primarily white and prominently moderate-conservative leaning. The people here are friendly and approachable. The major downside to living in Sanborn is that commute time to work and other activities will likely be high.

Sanborn is a small town that has very friendly people located about 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls airport. There is an affordable community college in the area called Niagara County Community College which offer a varies of associates degrees as well as certificate programs. This is a great place to get your education journey started especially for international students who are looking to save on college tuition.
I like the country atmosphere and only being 35-45 minutes from Buffalo. They just brought in a Tops Supermarket which is a bonus - it saves me a 20 min drive.
