Rochester and the Finger Lakes region is a four-season destination. Each season provides unique and varied experiences.

Visitors will find Rochester, nicknamed the “Flower City,” to be budding each spring at our beautiful parks and gardens. Summer time is very green, with opportunities to enjoy the outdoors at festivals, parks, waterways and more. Fall’s vibrant colors can be seen everywhere from our city center, to our neighborhoods and countryside. Winter means plenty of snow for enjoying winter sports, ice-skating, skiing, sledding and more.

The average temperature in the summer is 78ºF (26 C); and the average temperature in the winter is 32ºF (0 C).
