Ready to get your hygge (hooo-gah) on? You’re in the right spot. Rochester ranked sixth on the Sperling’s Best Places list of the nation’s Top Hygge Cities. And, we couldn’t agree more!

The Danish term describes being cozy and content (or satisfied) with all that comes with the winter. Activities that drive hygge include indulging in warm beverages and comfort food, sitting in front of a fireplace, hanging out with friends and family, and bundling up with a warm blanket or scarf.

We’ve pulled together a list of the top spots that will help you get your hygge on this winter when you visit Rochester, NY!
