Rochester is a great city: We have glorious parks, recreation areas, beautiful countryside only minutes away and yet we have a vital urban area too. Right now our downtown needs spiffing up, yet we still have much to offer for residents and visitors. Great arts scene, good shopping such as our great Rochester Public Market.

I love the music scene in Rochester, from ushering for the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, or the RPO as we say here, to the Jazz Festival, to great local bands. Also since I am a movie nerd, I love the Dryden Theater at the George Eastman House. Also good restaurants, not too big and easy to get around. Only 1 hour by plane from NYC, 3 hrs drive to Toronto, 90 min drive to Niagara Falls. Yes we have “strong” and interesting winters but I like winter. Lots of ice skating rinks, parks for cross-country skiing and sledding, ski slopes (and only 4 hrs drive from Adirondacks for more skiing). Yeah Rochester.
