Rockin' Rochester

This summer has been a whirlwind of activity, with one of the highlights being a trip back to the US to see family and friends. 

Between visits and relaxation, my husband and I took a day trip to Rochester, NY (the state's third most populous city, after New York and Buffalo...and home to Kodak!). Not being too familiar with the city, we had a lot of fun discovering some of the wonderful things it has to offer.

Check out a few of our favorite stops below!

High Falls, Rochester, NY, USA


TRATA - The Restaurant at the Armory
145 Culver Road
Rochester, NY 14620

USA

TRATA is "an upscale-casual,'all American' bar and restaurant". This hip industrial building provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy an innovative menu featuring everything from duck quesadillas to a tower of buttermilk fried chicken and biscuits.

Ontario Beach Park 
50 Beach Ave
Rochester, NY 14612
USA

Ontario Beach Park is a surprisingly fantastic summer destination. Take a refreshing dip in Lake Ontario (sandy beach and lifeguards included!), stroll to the tip of the seemingly never-ending pier, savour a picnic lunch in an open air pavillion, or ride the historic Dentzel Carousel (a park staple since 1905).
