What to see other than the falls

We will be visiting buffalo in June we would like to do some extended day trips.  We like history.  Natural beauty and things of interest.  Also any recommendations for good food for lunch and dinner (not wings).  Is the Erie canal possible?

If you have a car you could drive down to Allegany State Park in  Salamanca (New York) where there is a lot of outdoor activities.On the way from Buffalo along highway 219 South there is Holiday Valley Resort (ski resort) and in the summer time there's still stuff to do like visiting alpaca farms! My favorite is Sugartown Alpaca Farm in Ellicottville. Also on 219 there is the Griffis Sculpture Park in East Otto. If you drive East before heading back up to Buff, dinner at Beef 'N' Barrel in Olean is a must, including their famous peppermint snowball sundae. Portville has an old-school drive-in movie theater for evening showings.

In Buffalo I love Frank's Sunny Italy on 2491 Delaware Ave for simple Italian food. By University at Buffalo's South campus is Amy's Place on 3234 Main St. It has American and Middle Eastern food. Not fancy but really good. And by the way, right in Niagara Falls is some great hiking, like in Devil's Hole State Park where you can hike down a gorge right up to the rapids of Niagara River.

Definitely check out the Olmsted Park System. It was the first of its kind built in America. Delaware Park is the crown jewel. Located in the Park is the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and The Buffalo History Museum, two classic marble museums. During the summer there will be Shakespeare in the Park and lots of hiking to keep you occupied.
Want more nature? Right next to the park is one of the nicest walks you will ever take...through Forest Lawn Cemetery. Here you can see the beautiful architecture on the old mausoleums as you walk around the central lake through winding paths.
