Looking for something to do in Buffalo? Maybe something outside the same old nightlife and dining options? Forest Lawn is one of the city's top attractions. There are many ways to enjoy the beauty and splendor of Forest Lawn’s 269 acres, while learning more about its history, its more than 163,000 residents, sculptural and architectural masterpieces and the beautiful grounds, including lakes, creeks, trees and wildlife.

The best way to do so is through our ever-popular, award-winning tour program. Each year, from June through October, Forest Lawn is proud to present a full schedule of guided tours that explore the many facets of one of Western New York’s most precious cultural jewels - national and international history, art, architecture and nature, including trees, waterways and wildlife.

Climb aboard the climate controlled, state-of-the-art Forest Lawn Trolley or walk the grounds for an entertaining and enjoyable trip back in time. Our experienced, knowledgeable docents will be your guides as they share the many stories of Forest Lawn. And along the way, don’t be surprised if you meet some of Forest Lawn’s famous “permanent residents” during your journey.

The activity at Forest Lawn doesn’t stop during the fall and winter months – we just head indoors for our famous Sunday in the Cemetery Concert and Lecture Series.  The concert series includes a full schedule of programs in the historic Forest Lawn Chapel, and the newly opened Margaret L. Wendt Archive and Resource Center, highlighted by rousing concert performances and fascinating lectures, as well as a show that has quickly become a Western New York holiday tradition – It Was a Wonderful Life.  In this original musical many of our permanent residents create musical, comical and poignant glimpses of Christmases past when they enjoyed life on this side of the lawn.
