I visited Cheektowaga in New York in 2008 because my long-distance boyfriend was a citizen of the town. At first the town seemed uneventful, but overtime I realized the beauty found within its borders. First of all, the culture of Cheektowaga is absolutely amazing, full of variety and rich historical backgrounds. 40% of Cheektowaga is Polish American, and another huge percent is Seneca Native American. The townsfolk are wonderfully kind and offer fascinating information about their cultural background, as well as the history of Cheektowaga itself.
Cheektowaga has all the essentials; a night club, a flea market, malls, and various other venues such as the Dollar General and restaurants. However, the town has gone through some troubles. Businesses have closed down at exponential rates, causing many to flee the area to more financially thriving cities. But Cheektowaga redeems itself with income coming from its local college, Villa Maria, and it's more than safe atmosphere.
Visitors will easily find things to do through out the town, be it entertaining or family-driven. Cheektowaga has a town park, which includes a digital billboard that showcases an official schedule of daily activities. The town also has a golf course, as well as live sports, luxurious movie theaters, and nature walks.
