WNY Southtowns Scenic Byway
Situated southeast of metropolitan Buffalo, the Western New York Southtowns are graced with a series of highways brought together under the banner of the Western New York Southtowns Scenic Byway to unite Erie and Cattaraugus Counties, and numerous towns and villages, into a regional attraction for tourists and the citizens of the area. The Byway forms a 108-mile scenic loop that runs from the towns of Orchard Park and Aurora south through Boston, Colden, and Concord. Recent New York State legislation approved its extension through Ashford and Ellicottville, terminating at the southern Ellicottville town line.
Routes US 219, NY 240, and NY 242 guide the traveler through the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains.
