Located 12 miles from downtown Buffalo on the shores of Lake Erie, the town of Hamburg is rich in history and natural beauty. There are several villages and hamlets within Hamburg, including Blasdell, Clifton Heights, and Carnegie.
The Hamburg Fairgrounds, home to the Erie County Fair since 1868, is a popular spot for annual events, as well. Festivals, shows, and the Shrine Circus keep the Fairgrounds busy year-round. The Buffalo Raceway, featuring harness racing, is also located on the Fairgrounds, as is Fairgrounds Gaming, with 950 video gaming machines.
Residents of Hamburg enjoy boating and swimming, and the Lake Erie Seaway Trail Center gives visitors an overview of the Great Lakes Seaway Trail System, which includes many lighthouses and historic sites.
Renting an apartment in Hamburg allows new residents to experience the beauty and recreation of Lake Erie and the fine dining, shopping, and museums of downtown Buffalo, both within easy reach.
