When to Visit Rochester, New York

Before you start planning your visit to Rochester, consider the time of year. The weather in Rochester can change from one minute to another, which makes any season of the year a little unpredictable. However, winters generally mean frigid temperatures and a fair amount of ice on the roads. Nearly 100 inches of snow fall in this city every year, so if you aren't used to driving in snowy conditions, consider visiting in the fall, spring, or summer.

Tourism travel peaks between May and August, bringing crowds and higher hotel rates. Fall brings beautiful autumn color to Rochester as well as a plethora of outdoor festivals and events. Although nights might get uncomfortably chilly during this time of year, you'll enjoy the crisp air and vibrant colors as long as you bring some layers to keep yourself warm.

During the spring, you might take advantage of the more than 60 golf courses or 12,000 acres of public green space in Rochester. When winter ends, locals and visitors alike spend more time outdoors, which means more opportunities to socialize and experience nature.
