Fairport is just a short drive from Rochester - and there is so much to do in this pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined village! You can try out boating, kayaking, rowing or paddling on the Erie Canal. If you are not ready to get in the water, you can stroll or bike along the waterfront or, if you are lucky, experience the unique lift bridge raising up when a larger boat is passing underneath. If you prefer shopping and dining at authentic, locally-owned businesses and eateries, you are in the right place. And if you like crowds, make sure to visit for Canal Days the first weekend in June or the Music Festival the last weekend in August.
