The Greater Rochester Area

is one of America’s top-rated places to live, work, and play. Hugging the Genesee river in Upstate New York, Rochester is a well-kept secret. Visitors say we have the arts, culture, sports, and nightlife of a much larger city, but the easiness of a small town. Rochester is along the historic Erie canal, north of the world renowned wine region of The Finger Lakes, and conveniently central between Toronto, Buffalo, and Syracuse. This natural wonderland offers one of the most visually stunning places to see. Greater Rochester is the third largest urban area in New York. From amusement parks to sports to historical landmarks - there’s a little bit of everything for all!
