    AA Penfield Taxi in Webster (575-671-9799) is 15 miles west and the closest taxi company.

    Enterprise Rental in Macedon (315-986-2600) is 15 miles south and the closest car rental.

    The only bus service anywhere nearby is Trailways and Greyhound into Rochester,NY then you would have to get a taxicab from there to Williamson.

    There is a rental bus service in Ontario Center http://www.startravelandtours.com/ which normally takes tours to local casinos and sports events in western New York but which can also be hired to take groups on sightseeing tours.

    The best method of travel in Williamson is by private car. You can easily access any of the local sites and also venues in the Rochester vicinity by using route 104 just north of Williamson. Route 103 will also provide east-west access and route 21 is good for north-south access.

    The annual Apple Blossom Festival is on again this year in Williamson.
    There will be the usual craftsman's tents selling wood-products and jewelry and homemade foods and blankets. The local bands will be there with a stage visit from some celebrity singer who is promoting their latest album/CD. The rides and carnival pulled in and setup the night before the festival, so be sure to bring a few dollars because the ticket price is sure to be higher this year than last year. There will be the hots and hamburgers and powdered waffles; the cotton candy and candied apples. A beer or two may be sold and drunk. And the fireworks finale is sure to be good again.

    This is how Williamson celebrates the beginning of another record apple season in upstate New York. It normally occurs just after Mother's Day in May. Come on over and have some fun if you are in the area.

    to get there:
    route 104 to Williamson exit, go south on route 21 to Williamson and see the advertisements in town

    The crime stats for Williamson show it to be well below average for risk from both violent and non-violent crimes except for the case of Rape. The stats for rape are like those of an average city of much larger population.

    There are two registered sex offenders in the area and they are listed at:
    http://www.city-data.com/so/so-Williamson-New-York.html

    To prevent from being a victim of crime while on vacation you should follow some simple safety actions.
    If you travel with kids, then know where they are at all times.
    If you are traveling alone, then do not go into unfamiliar areas without getting more information (like from the motel staff) and do not go out very late at night by yourself.
    Use the safebox at the motel for your valuables or at least lock them in you car trunk where they are out of sight.
    Lock cars doors always.

    Be smart, be safe, have a happy vacation.
