I moved to Tonawanda, NY about six years ago from Nashville, TN. This is a town that is simple in design with friendly people at every turn. The houses are quaint, and there are few large apartment complexes, something that gives the city its charm. The home that I have now is a comfortable three-bedroom home with a full front porch and large back yard. I am able to walk in town on the beautifully landscaped sidewalks, greeting the other people in the community who like to walk to work or who like to walk from one store to another.
Since there are so many families in the area, it would be feasible to think that there are numerous activities for them to do in the city. While there are several attractions, like Adventure Landing and the Bowling Center, there are more attractions for adults than that would be for children.
Adventure Landing is a place I like to go to play miniature golf. There are a few different courses inside, and there are some arcade games. Avoid going on the weekend, especially if it's raining, because it can get very crowded. The Bowling Center is another place I like to go at night. There are leagues in the summer for children, but it's more of a place to go if you have nothing else to do in town.
There are very few restaurants, and the ones that are in the city are more of the fast food type. I don't like this as I enjoy the larger restaurants. Most of the shopping centers are locally owned. This isn't a bad thing as many of the things I have purchased have been from people who make things from home or from a smaller business.
