Picture a city with miles of lakeshore, a riverfront sprinkled with waterfalls, and a historic canal that flows through the heart of small-town Americana. Now, imagine that same city surrounded by world-class wine country, glacier-carved lakes, and one of the largest collections of cobblestone homes in the United States. Rochester, NY is a history-rich Erie Canal boomtown complimented by sources like Kiplinger, Fortune, and CNN Money on everything from being insanely brainy to having an incomparable commute. Residents in the Greater Rochester, NY region get to experience the best of both worlds: the culture of a big city with all the comforts of a small town.
