Miami, Florida
I found this trip to Miami for under $300 for a round-trip ticket out of Buffalo. I used to live in Florida and attended Florida A & M University, so I personally recommend a trip down "souf" to ease some of the pain of Buffalo winters. I usually stay in Ft. Lauderdale when I go down south, but I do love Miami. I found this on Kayak.com for December 3 through December 6, 2021, for $221,

This non-stop flight will put you in the "Miami heat" with a 4-hour flight.

If the beaches of Miami and the Atlantic Ocean aren't your thang, maybe gambling is...

I've only been to Vegas once, but I did have a great time, even though I don't gamble. If you are looking to escape the Buffalo cold weather here, why not try Las Vegas, Nevada?! I found this flight on Kayak.com for $314,

I grew up in Tucson, and if you're looking for heat, Arizona got that for you. While I would never live in AZ again, it's a great place to visit if you want to be a "snow bird," which is someone who escapes the snow for the warmth.

American Airlines has a flight to AZ for under $400 ($394), in December, when things start getting a bit chilly in NY.

Now, if a long-ass flight isn't your thing (it's definitely not mine), you can book a ticket for a bit more than $400. United is offering a flight for over $400 in November at $434,
