    Buffalo is a great location to raise a family. It has that small-town charm with a sense of "family" in the community. Downtown has many locally owned shops, including a local brewery, with a variety of merchants. There is a public-owned pool that is free to everyone in the summer. There are a lot of things to do around town for any age, and if you need more excitement, just drive 10 miles up the Big Horn Mountains to have access to lots of outdoor amenities, including skiing, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, camping, and more!

    The job market is growing. There are jobs available, just not a huge diversity of jobs. If you and a spouse are looking for specific jobs, good luck!

    Flying out of Buffalo is a pain. The closest airport is 30 miles away but VERY pricey and the closest major airport is Denver which is 6 hours away. Other forms of public transportation are not available. But if you are looking for an interstate, Buffalo is at the intersection of two major ones: I-25 and I-90
