Things to do

Getting classy with wine and art in Rochester

First stop: Seneca Park Zoo, home to more than 90 groups of mammals, reptiles, fish, and more. If history tickles your fancy, a visit to the George Eastman Museum of photography and film is a must. Glimpse some of the region's most unforgettable contemporary and ancient artwork at the Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Rochester. Equally fascinating are the exhibits at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. The Susan B. Anthony House is another must-seeÑit's where Anthony herself was arrested in 1872. The area is also abundant with wineries, particularly near the Finger Lakes.


Getting all zen by the lakeside

After taking a hike or a walk along the Finger Lakes, explore the unique boutiques or grab a bite at a neighborhood bar. If you're around in the evening, pop into a lively bistro to catch a local band strumming. No visit to Rochester is complete without a tour; you can opt for a self-guided excursion downtown or a group bike tour. You can even enjoy lakeside yoga for some inspiration. The area also features upscale spas, perfect if you want to escape your Rochester vacation rental for a little R&R. Each season features a major festival, celebrating everything from music to film to flowers.


Tiptoe through the daisiesÑor the snow

There are 4 true seasons in Rochester, and each offers its own distinct charm. Summer is lush and bright, with plentiful opportunities to get out there and soak up the sunshine. You can literally tiptoe through the daisies in the springtime. If you prefer a dose of cooler weather, though, fall doesn't disappoint, particularly by the lake where mild breezes ensure you won't leave your Rochester vacation rental without a cardigan. Winter temperatures dip down to the low 30s, and you'll almost definitely encounter more than few inches of snow.
