The Official Tourism Site of Rochester, NY!

There are always reasons in every season to visit Rochester.

Discover Rochester, NY this spring and summer and find out just why we are called the "Flower City." Beautiful blooms and stunning gardens make our seasons a colorful array of experiences. Spring also kicks off our festival season with more than 140 festivals and events (May through October) in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region.

Warmer weather means outdoor adventures at amusement parks, boating on lakes, rivers and the Erie Canal, hiking in our more than 12,000 acres of parkland, agri-tourism, and much more. Bring the whole family. There are more than 100 family friendly attractions to explore in the Greater Rochester area. Families of all ages will discover imagination, history, science, art, and fun that will create memories for years to come. Learn more at FamilyFuntastic.com

Don't forget to bring your clubs, golf is great in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region with more than 60 public and semipublic golf courses.

We can tell you why to visit Rochester, but we'd rather show you. See our new video, A-Z Rochester, the Place to Be
