“As many years as I’ve been using your site to explore Rochester and the surrounding area with my family, reading this gave me a list of things I still need to do and reminded me of favorites I want to get back to. I think this will be amazing for residents, new ones, and ones who have been here for ages, as well as visitors to the region.” Cristin M.
