Flower City

Blending big-city culture with small-town charm, Rochester sits on the southern shore of Lake Ontario.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Mon): immerse yourself in nature at Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park. Keep things going the next day: get engrossed in the history at George Eastman Museum, then explore the engaging exhibits at The Strong National Museum of Play, and then walk around Highland Park.

To see other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Rochester holiday website.

New York City to Rochester is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from New York City in July, expect Rochester to be slightly colder, temps between 81°F and 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can drive to Ithaca.

Ithaca is a city in the Southern Tier-Finger Lakes region of New York. Get out of town with these interesting Ithaca side-trips: Corning Museum of Glass (in Corning), Deckertown Falls (in Montour Falls) and Watkins Glen State Park (in Watkins Glen). Next up on the itinerary: admire the majestic nature at Robert Treman State Park, stroll through Greek Peak Mountain Resort, learn more about the world around you at Museum of the Earth, and stroll the grounds of Cortland Rural Cemetery.

Plan my Ithaca trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Rochester to Ithaca in 2 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In July, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to drive back home.
