Get the door, it's the liquor store
When the Buffalo Bills and downtown casinos are less than 20 minutes away, you can expect to have a pretty good time in Amherst, New York. Moreover, both SUNY and the University of Buffalo have campuses nearby, so the area caters to college students while also attracting young professionals and... families working in nearby Buffalo. Amherst consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the state, in large part due to the area’s schools and affordable housing. Parks and other family-oriented activities (e.g., laser tag and mini-golf) attract a growing population to the area — at least for those who can survive the winter. Amherst is right in the middle of a major sports fanbase, whether you’re rooting for hockey, football or baseball. Upstate New Yorkers know how to thrive and cheer on their favorite teams, even in the coldest winters. Of course, it helps to have a little something to warm up. Luckily, no matter the season, Drizly delivers locally to Amherst for whatever beer, wine or liquor you need for the big game.
