Blending big-city culture with small-town charm, Rochester sits on the southern shore of Lake Ontario. One of America's original boomtowns, the city first rose to prominence as a major milling and manufacturing hub on the Genesee River. The city of 210,000 is now an international center of higher education, housing several universities renowned for their research programs. Known to many amateur photographers as "Kodak Town," Rochester offers a mix of tourist attractions that includes everything from modern museums and cultural festivals to minor league sports teams and a set of three scenic waterfalls right in the middle of the city. Be sure to explore Rochester's culinary scene, famous for its "garbage plate," a popular local specialty. You can plan United States trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
