Weekend Travel to Niagara Falls (Package Tour)

by psethura

Hi,

I will be visiting Rochester shortly. I'm looking for weekend package tour to Niagara falls (US Side). Appreciate if someone can share any URL (Bus Package Tour) from Rochester to Niagara Falls.

Thanks
PS

Amtrak leaves rochester on Fridays at 2:00, 5:00, and 8:00 Pm with arrivals in niagara Falls about two hours later. On Sunday you could catch the train back at 3:00 PM. price is only about $30 ea way. You can also take the train to Niagara Falls in canada on a different schedule. Greyhound also has busses runing to Buffalo from Rochester. Then you can use local transit to get to the falls.
You don't say where you are from. I strongly suggest visiting the Canadian side, you can walk across the bridge. You will need your passport however.

Oh!

Rochester is thousands of miles from the falls... I've taken my pupils there many times. There is so much to see there: a castle, the cathedral..

Also, there is a lot to find out about Charles Dickens.

A coach tour to Niagara Falls would take too long and there would be many deaths. So, I wouldn't recommend it.

Have fun in Canada/USA though.

Travel Tips for Rochester

Sector 1

by davecallahan

The city of Rochester is delineated into 10 individual political/social units called sectors.

Sector 1 is centered around Lake Avenue from the Kodak Park area to the Lake Ontario beach.
It includes most of Charlotte. It was annexed to the city from the town of Greece in the mid-19th century.

The area was in decline before the Ferry project came to Rochester. Then 157 million dollars was injected into the sector to cleanup and build new bridges (O'Rorke Bridge) and install new buildings at the dilapitated Port of Ontario. The highways were rennovated and new sewer and lighting were installed.
The the Ferry project collapsed and the future of the area is in limbo again. Without a new center for commercial development, Sector 1 will probably go back into its decline cycle as lower income residents from other sectors move into the area.

The main things to visit here are the beach, the river port, Abbotts Ice Cream and the many restaurants at the north end of Lake Avenue. The area is pleasant during the day and early evening but can get rough late at nite (when the several bars in the area are at peak business).

Sector 6

by davecallahan

The city of Rochester is delineated into 10 individual political/social units called sectors.

Sector 6 has these boundaries: I-490, I-390 and Westfall Road, Genesee River, Clinton Avenue. Within this area you will find the nieghborhoods of South Wedge, Ellwanger, Swillburg, Highland and Strong.
Highland is around Highland Park where the Lilac Festival is held and Strong is around University of Rochester and Strong Hospital.
North of Highland Park and between the river and Clinton Avenue is the South Wedge. One of the facilities in this neighborhood is the South Wedge Landing where boat trips on the river are scheduled. The area is mostly residential and safe enough during the day but there have been several murders there in the wee hours of the morning.
West of Highland Park is Ellwanger where the nurseries were for the original lilacs in Highland Park and is now residential area of slow decline.
In the little wedge between South Clinton and I-490 is Swillburg which is now an ethnic residential area with a reputation for being a rather rough area after dark.

Harvest Jamboree

by davecallahan

The Public Market on North Union Street hosts a free Harvest Jamboree on the last weekend in September to celebrate the harvest season. They setup a petting zoo with farm animals and rabbits and kittens for the kids. There are also pony rides and face painting. The adults can join in some line dancing demonstrations and watch live musical entertainment. Pumpkins can be bought and decorated with help from the experts. Cooks will give demonstrations on how to best prepare some of the fresh fruits and vegetables you can get at the market.
The full market will also be open with its line of produce and flowers and arts-crafts.

Warm clothes

by clouds111

We visited Rochester just before Christmas and got there just in time for their first major snow storm of the winter. To save room in my back pack I had left my snow boots behind and wish I hadn't! My Uggs got ruined. Although you can never rely on the weather, but I suggest taking some or at least buying some when you're there.
