The Official Tourism Site of Rochester, NY!

There are always reasons in every season to visit Rochester.

Rochester and the Finger Lakes --- a 4 season destination, including the dynamic season of winter. Winter sports and activities are endless in our region, like skiing, sledding, ice-skating, snow shoeing, ice-fishing and more. Our more than 12,000 acres of park land glisten in the freshly fallen snow, making it a great spot for shutterbugs. 

Winter is also the height of our cultural season, with theatre, dance, music and art shows. Rochester, NY is a cornucopia of cultural experiences.

Dine in style in our cozy restaurants, cafes and pubs for a fun night out. Or take a tour and stop by the more than 100 wineries, breweries and distilleries in the Rochester and Finger Lakes region, for a taste of New York, you can only find here.

School breaks are the perfect time to plan a trip to the Greater Rochester area. Families of all ages will discover imagination, history, science, art and fun at our more than 100 family friendly attractions.

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