Listen to WXXI Connections with Evan Dawson, live on 4/21/23: What makes Rochester and the surrounding region remarkable?


“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 whole 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.”

I am a web designer, photographer, and travel writer from Rochester, New York. For nearly fifty years, I have lived in the area, with my youth spent in West Irondequoit with my parents and sister and young adult life in Holley and North Chili. I currently live in Scottsville with my husband, where we raised our two daughters, who now have families of their own. After years of documenting day-trip ideas for my Girl Scout troop, I launched daytrippingroc.com in 2017 as a community resource, writing detailed guides highlighting the best places to visit in the city of Rochester, the Genesee Valley, and the Finger Lakes region, as well as several destinations in Central New York, Western New York, and the Southern Tier.
