Rochester, NY is for you!

Picture of Rochester, New York.

Rochester, NY is a not-insignificant city nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario and has been named one of the country’s best places to raise kids.

Although it only boasts about a million residents, there's a reason it attracts twice that many in tourists every year. It could be the city's obsession with festivals (140), but it also may have to do with their 10K+ acres of parkland.

And in case you tire of Rochester’s hundreds of breweries and top rated restaurants, you're only a half-day car-ride from downtown NYC and a short drive from Niagara Falls and Toronto.
