Visiting Rochester, Letchworth Park and Erie Canal

by iam1wthee

Next month I plan on going to Rochester from NYC.
While there I plan to see Letchworth Park and Erie Canal.
Does anyone know of a hotel in Rochester that has a tour desk to take one to these other places? If not is there a tour agency in Rochester that takes you to the other places mentioned?
You see if there is then I would just take the plane up there, however, if there isn't then I would try to drive up there. The drive is like 5-7hours I understand and I have never driven for this long.
Is there any rest stop or interesting town along the way that anyone can recommend so that I can rest up for the other half of the drive?
How is the weather there in early to midst September?
Would the waters be too cold to do white water rafting in Letchworth park? Would it be to windy for ballooning?
Is there a cruise that goes into Letchworth Park?
How is traffic up there, is it as bad as NY? Can one find parking easy?
Would the laser light shows still continue past Labor Day? Are there cruises in Erie after Labor day?

I know this is a lot but your response is greatly appreciated.

I don't know the answers to your specific questions but one sure thing is that you will need a car. Unless you are elderly or disabled you should easily be able to do the drive from NYC to Rochester in a day, with lots of time to stop for rests. The driving in the area is not nearly as bad as NYC. If you stay in the suburbs, you don't need to do any city driving at all.

rochester is one cool city, i loved it. after being in new york for so long, i travelled there and stayed there for about a month.
i was staying in berkley str, then onto culver avenue.
driving around rochester is simple, and its nothing like new york, while there i used car, bike, and scooter and had no problems.
if you want to know great info from great people, look up the "old toad pub" and ring and ask them, i know its not really a tourist info place but the people there are brilliant, brits and americans. and they would be sure to help you find a place to stay and point you in the right direction.!
ps. i got the plane up there for about $60 dollars which is not a lot.
have fun.

Travel Tips for Rochester

And if you're into shopping,...

by Pegasus74

And if you're into shopping, don't miss the Waterloo Factory Outlet (45 minutes from Rochester via I-90E->I-318E) and the Niagara Falls Factory Outlet (very near to the Niagara Falls) where famous brand name stores (Polo Ralph, Levis, Nautica, DKNY, Calvin Klein, TimberLand) can be found. You're sure to pack your cars with loads of items after the day.

So what are you going to do if you're here in winter? Tough question huh, especially where the temperature is freaking cold. Well there's the Bristol Mountain (96S->444E->5S->64W) where I picked up skiing and snowboarding. A good ground for breathtaking vistas of the Bristol Valley, and to spot a deer or two while meandering down the snow trails.

Hiking on Crescent trails. ...

by nuker

Hiking on Crescent trails. Fun trails to roam around on. I think the whole trail system is about 20+ miles. Very quiet and easy to find your way. The trails are found in Perinton and Fairport. My favorite trail is the one that takes you to where Woodcliff is. At this point, you get a beautiful view of the Genesee Valley and the farmland that surrounds it.

Many parts of the trails have nice views in certain areas. None of the trails have really high summits, but it is nice to be outside where you can't hear any traffic.

Party in the Park

by davecallahan

The annual "Party in the Park" festival returns to Rochester for the city's 175th anniversary. The venue has been moved to a larger, more accessible location at Exchange and Court, right across from the BCBS Arena. It is tauted as "the most exciting summer festival in Rochester" and hosts generally between 30000 and 40000 people.
For eight consecutive Thursday in June, July and August, professional musicians will entertain the crowds for 5 hours (starts about 5pm). The bands are national (Average White Band) and local (Buddhahood) favorites and each nite has two bands performing.

Besides the bands, there are food tents (local favorite is Zweigles) and street vendors hawking their wares. Local TV stations regularly send in camera crews to get highlights of the musicians and the crowd reactions.

See the website below for information on which bands play on which evenings and also to find a contact telephone number for information on parking.
And best of all it is free.

Watch the Birdie.....

by davecallahan

With camera in hand and binoculars hanging at your side, you quietly (should I say steathily) walk the path towards the chirping/cawing/tweetering you hear.

If this sounds familiar then you are into bird watching like I am.

Rochester is a great place to do this; not so much right in the city but in the nearby suburbs.

As a hobby, bird watching has two things going for it: its cheap and its great exercise.

Some of the best areas near Rochester to ornivisualize are:
Braddock Bay
Hamlin Beach State Park
Mendon Ponds Park
Cranberry, Long and Buck Ponds
Island Cottage Woods
Durand Eastman Park

The city of Rochester also has a birdcam focused on their adopted family of Peregrin Falcons at Falcons.

A good source for general birding in western NY is: Upstate Birding
