For a medium sized city that is home to just over one million people, Rochester NY, also known as the Flour City, is ranked as one of the most livable cities (according to the 2007 edition of Places Rated Almanac). Affordability, average cost of living, and decent commutes all add to the quality of life here. And even though the winters can be long and harsh, the beautiful summers (replete with tons of things to do) keep us busy and happy.
And certainly, as summer is quickly passing us by, the number of fun things to do in Rochester NY sure are not dwindling. Here is a short list of some of the most family fun things to see in Rochester each weekend.
- Rochester Farmers Market
- Rochester Restaurants
- Rochester Zoo
The city of Rochester public market is a hidden gem. Open year round on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, you can peruse the many food vendors, pick up a pierogie or two, buy some farm fresh produce, or simply grab a delicious breakfast sandwich and people watch. There is something to please any member of your family.
Rochester is also home to some of the finest (and yummiest) dining establishments around. Regardless if you are craving a garbage plate or a five star dining experience, the city and surrounding suburbs have offerings to match any palate. And for budget conscious Rochesterians (which to be honest, who is not?) there are many local coupon deals to be found (Rochester NY coupon can be found online from coupon deal sites and often directly from the establishments website.)
Last but certainly not least is the Seneca Park Zoo, which has been an area staple for more than 100 years. The zoo has a fun rotation of promotions and events when it is in season, and admission does not have to cost an arm and a leg. A zoo Rochester NY coupon or deal can often be found with just a quick internet search.
