Get a feel for what Greater Rochester is all about from the community's locals who know best.
Located at the confluence of Lake Ontario, the Erie Canal, and the Finger Lakes, Greater Rochester spans nine counties, more than a million people, and New York State’s fourth-largest city. With big city assets and small-town connectivity, Greater Rochester has it all. Close to major markets without the major market expense, the region boasts real estate costs well below major metros and one of the nation’s shortest commutes. And as New York State’s fastest-growing midsized metro in 2021, it’s no wonder Rochester ranked #5 on Ownerly’s list of America’s Best Cities for Remote Workers. Greater Rochester is a foodie’s paradise, recognized as one of the country’s top cities for food, home to one of America’s leading wine regions, and one of the world’s top-10 beer destinations according to VinePair.com. Named one of America’s “Top Minor League Markets” by Sports Business Journal, Rochester boasts teams for every taste. And with more than 140 festivals each year – from the Rochester Lilac Festival into the Rochester International Jazz Fest, Fringe Fest, Finger Lakes Wine Festival, and ROC Holiday Village, you’re sure to stay busy. Still have energy? Visit the Rochester Public Market, tour the Memorial Art Gallery, take in a performance by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, and let your inner kid run wild at The Strong National Museum of Play.
