Rochester, in New York State, has a wealth of historical and natural attractions to explore, and is also the perfect springboard for trips to other areas of the state’s northeastern region.
The High Falls of the Genessee River are Rochester’s most acclaimed environmental attraction. They are best viewed from Brown’s Race, an historical monument which is an attraction in itself. Often overlooked are the Middle Falls and Lower Falls of the Genessee, which are more isolated than the High Falls and certainly worth a visit.
The city centre abounds with historical wealth. On Main Street, visitors can wander past 22 historic markers, including exquisite decorative railings on Main Street Bridge, and an imposing statue of Mercury. Main Street is also filled with shops, ranging from high-end boutiques to bargain stores.
North of Rochester is one of the world’s most stupendous natural sights - Niagara Falls, the second-largest of its kind in the world. Beyond the falls, on the St Lawrence River, are the Thousand Islands. The islands are tranquil and naturally beautiful, with abundant parks and forested areas.
Albany, the New York State capital, is situated west of Rochester, on Lake Hudson, and is home to numerous popular entertainment venues. The French château style capitol building is an additional attraction.
