I was born and raised in Rochester, NY.
What a city.
I grew up in a neighborhood called The 19th Ward.
Rochester is a great mid-sized city.
I always wonder what my life would look like if I never moved from Rochester. I went to school K-12 there, but left for college.
Apart from The Summer of 2012, I don't really know what its like to live there.
But it still feels like home.
HERE ARE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS
Braddock Bay | Totally underrated and underpublicized state park in the Northwest suburbs.
Letchworth State Park | It's reputation speaks for itself. "The Grand Canyon of the East."
Durand Eastman | "The Beach" | It's not the greatest beach. It is easily accessible though and has some really great vendors and concerts during the summer.
