Rochester is made for living! It has small city charm, with a big city vibe. There are 35 museums and galleries. Music of all types and description is prevalent – inspired by the world-renowned Eastman School of Music and spurred on by the popular Rochester International Jazz Festival, innumerable clubs, and performance venues. It is ranked as the best minor league sports market in the nation; and sports fans gravitate just as eagerly toward the NFL Buffalo Bills and the Orangemen of Syracuse University—both nearby. That is when they are not golfing, hiking, biking, skiing, boating, or otherwise enjoying the outdoor life so readily available in this region.
