There are many reasons why a flight to Rochester, NY (ROC) is the best way to start your next picture-perfect vacation. Not only is Rochester the “Photonics Capital of the World,” but this busy region of New York also boasts year-round beautiful city views, complete with glistening waterfalls, unique architecture, and skyline reflections on Lake Ontario. So, feel free to document the trip with reckless abandon. Get to know the local arts scene with tickets to a performance at one of the many live theaters in the city, and be sure to visit the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse and the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House for your Rochester history fix.
When you step off the plane from your Rochester flight, you’ll be just a short 7 miles southeast of downtown, and close to the University of Rochester and several parks. Booking a hotel near Greater Rochester International Airport is an easy way to stay close to the city’s top attractions in a quieter neighborhood, but if you want to venture to the city center right away, you can catch a Regional Transit Service bus on Line 6. The bus stops right outside airport Entry B at the curb, and if you want to cut to the chase, snag a taxi outside the center entry (just down the sidewalk). Rochester is a driver’s city overall, though, and once you snatch your luggage from the carousel, you can rent some wheels on the lower level near baggage claim. Fill the truck with goodies at the Rochester Public Market, or join a ride share shuttle outside Entry A to go on a wine-tasting tour through the Finger Lakes.
You’re just a plane ticket away from beautiful scenery, delicious eats, and world-class performing arts.
