Join the Chicago Architecture Foundation as we visit the works of great architectural masters in Buffalo, New York. From Adler and Sullivan’s 1896 Guaranty building and Burnham’s Ellicott Square building to Henry Hobson Richardson Complex and Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House – you’ll see all the renowned architecture* Buffalo has to offer. We will also visit Frederick Law Olmstead (architect of Central Park) designed parkways and parks and Roycroft colony founded in 1895 - a major influence in the American Arts and Crafts movement. Also take in Niagara as you explore the 19th-century infrastructure of Niagara Falls, Buffalo's iconic grain elevators and more.
Extend your trip to 5 days and join us two days early (September 19-20) to enjoy a cruise on the “Maid of the Mist”, travel with us to Niagara-on-the-Lake on the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and enjoy a performance at the legendary Shaw Festival.
