Delight your senses and stop by! This is a great spot to take out of towners, as I think it really captures the essence of Rochester. A little zaney/hectic, but there's a place for everything and all falls beautifully into place.

State Parks worth the drive

Letchworth State Park, renowned as the "Grand Canyon of the East," is one of the most scenically magnificent areas in the eastern U.S. The Genesee River roars through the gorge over three major waterfalls between cliffs--as high as 600 feet in some places--surrounded by lush forests. Hikers can choose among 66 miles of hiking trails. Trails are also available for horseback riding, biking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. Stop for lunch or dinner at the beautiful Glen Iris Inn right in the park at the falls!
