Rochester is the third-largest city in the state of New York and has a great location at the southern edge of Lake Ontario where the Finger Lakes meet the Great Lakes. There are excellent museums, great dining and a stunning array of parks and gardens for you to discover during your Holiday Inn® Rochester hotel stay.
George Eastman, the founder of Kodak, was brought up in Rochester, and his magnificent home now houses the world’s oldest photography museum and is well worth a few hours of your time. Younger visitors won’t want to miss the Strong Museum, an interactive museum for children, which boasts a recreation of Sesame Street among many other exhibits. The Ontario Beach Park with its pier, boardwalks and lakeside beach is within easy reach of our Rochester hotels. Or take a cruise down the Erie Canal and Genesee River aboard the Sam Patch, a replica 19th century packet boat.
Flower lovers should visit in May for the annual Lilac Festival in Highland Park when more than 1,200 lilac bushes burst into bloom. Or use your Holiday Inn Rochester hotel as the centre for a golfing holiday. Oak Hill Country Club has hosted both the PGA Championship and the Ryder Cup, and the city has been named among the best golf cities in the U.S.
