About Buffalo Airport 

As the second-largest city in New York, Buffalo has a lot to keep anyone busy while you are waiting for your flight. Located on the shores of Lake Erie by the Niagara River, the beauty of this bustling city will astound you. Whether you have a long layover or are just passing through, you don’t want to just sit around and be bored. And if you have your kids along, you are going to want something to occupy them while you wait. From malls to museums and parks to paintball, the city can keep you all busy for several hours or more. 

Just 10 miles from the busy city of Buffalo, the Buffalo Airport, also known as Buffalo Niagara International Airport, is in the town of Cheektowaga. It is a significant transportation hub where they have more than 100 flights per day. Opened in 1926, it started out as 318 acres with one lane, and now it has over 1,000 acres. And while you are there, you can get a haircut, your shoes shined, and peruse the shops for souvenirs. You may also want to enjoy a meal or snack at one of the half-dozen restaurants or have a drink at one of the many bars or lounges. The service is friendly, and it feels more like a large shopping mall than an airport. But don't stop there, venture into Buffalo to get a taste of this Lake Erie city.

Luggage Storage Options Near Buffalo Airport

  • Get Locked Up: Locked Up Escape Games on Union Road four miles to the southwest has some excellent escape rooms to try and break out of. Bring the family and see if you can get out of the room before your hour is up. You cannot bring your luggage, so drop it off at a Bounce spot before heading in.

  • Niagara Falls: You cannot get this close to the falls without at least stopping by for a short stay. Niagara Falls State Park is a fun place to go to see the falls, but you need to drop off your bags with a Bounce representative first, so they don’t get wet. 

  • 5 Wits: Four miles away on Walden Galleria, this place is like nothing you have ever experienced before! This attraction is a live-action interactive adventure, like being in a real live video game. You won’t be able to bring your suitcases, so stop off at a Bounce partner first. 

  • Buffalo Zoo: For those who love animals, the Buffalo Zoo is the perfect way to spend a few hours. Just nine miles to the west on Parkside, you can explore this huge animal playground. See the Vanishing Animals exhibit and Big Cat Country before heading to the Rainforest Building. Next, view Sea Lion Cove and Arctic Edge at the front of the zoo. Be sure to drop off your baggage at Bounce for safekeeping because they don’t allow big bags here. 

  • Stiglmeier Park: Need some green space? Head eight miles to the south where you can find a huge park to relax in. Do some people watching or read a book in the fresh air. If you have kids, there are some fun games and a playground too. Or you can take a walk on one of the 15 trails in the woods. Don’t forget to leave your bags with a Bounce partner nearby. Hiking with luggage is no fun. 

  • Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens: For garden lovers in Buffalo, just 14 minutes to the south is a place packed with beauty and education as well. Get in touch with nature, take a guided tour, or just walk around and enjoy yourself while you are waiting for your flight. Leave your bags with a Bounce affiliate while you are at the gardens, so you don’t have to worry about them. 

  • Regal Transit Center & IMAX: How about a movie? Sit in some plush and cozy reclining seats in one of the multiple theaters at Regal only three miles to the northeast on Transit Road. With the choice of IMAX, 4DX, RPX, or ScreenX, you can watch a movie the way you like. No luggage allowed here, though, so drop it at a Bounce spot first. 

  • Amherst State Park: Check out the historic Amherst State Park on Mill Street, just four miles to the north. With several trails, benches along the water, and plenty of trees, the peace and beauty are calming. You will enjoy the scenery as well as the interpretive plaques teaching you about the flora and fauna in the area. But don’t bring your baggage. Bounce can watch it for you at one of their many locations around the city.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
