Setting & Lifestyle
Because of many things, Buffalo is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Buffalo a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Buffalo has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Buffalo’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Buffalo is worth considering.
Buffalo is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Buffalo isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Buffalo is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
