Day trip to Lewiston

My daughter had to visit an art museum to do a project for one of her art courses and since she is on spring break this week, we decided to go today. We headed up to the Castellani Art Museum on the campus of Niagara University. It's a nice museum and admission is always free.

After doing her research we decided to head into the village of Lewiston for shopping and lunch. We normally visit Lewiston during the summer, so we were surprised to see that a number of the stores weren't open today, just on the weekends during the winter. We did find a few places to shop and had lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, the Brickyard. Love the ribs there! Yum!

It was a great day to take a walk outdoors, too bad tomorrow is supposed to be cold and snowy.

Looking for something to do next week when the kids are off?

If you are looking for somewhere to go for a daytrip next week when the kids are off from school, why not check out Destiny USA in Syracuse. This shopping mall has much more to offer than just shopping. It's about a three hour drive from the Buffalo area

Here are some comments about the mall from their community outreach department:

Have you ever wanted to play in the Augusta National, or head out to the West Coast for a round of golf at Pebble Beach?  With the state of the art indoor Golf Simulators gaining popularity, that can be an option any day of the week—anytime of year!

Most indoor golf simulator locations offer a full bar and food service on site! Enjoy your time with friends or the family! 
Hikers, rock climbers, and outdoor lovers in general can take advantage of indoor rock walls and ropes courses in the winter months. Canyon Climb, at Destiny USA, is the world’s largest indoor ropes course— nearly 70 feet high with over 80 elements and platforms. No better way to bring the outdoors, indoors.
Rock climbing is exercise for both your body and your mind. From beginners to skilled adventurists, indoor locations provide you with fun obstacles and a safe environment.
Start your engines! At indoor locations across the country, tracks like Pole Position Raceway offer courses over ¼ of a mile with karts that go up to 45mph. What’s your need for speed?
