Rochester is the third largest city in New York State, and the gateway to the beautiful Finger Lakes region. It is vibrant and booming, a centre for culture, cuisine and craft beers. And it is conveniently situated between New York City and Niagara Falls. All of that makes it an ideal tourist destination, but it’s not as well known as it should be, meaning that it retains a friendly and intimate atmosphere.

Rochester is well known as a lively centre for the arts. There are conventional – and world-class – offerings in the form of classical music, jazz, art and drama. But there is also a quirky alternative scene, with music of every conceivable genre, and festivals galore. In particular, don’t miss the Rochester Fringe Festival, an eleven day extravaganza of visual and performance arts, incorporating music, magic and more…

Then there are the museums. One of these celebrates Rochester’s most famous resident: George Eastman, founder of the Kodak Company and of many of the city’s cultural and educational institutions.
