With more than one million people in its greater metropolitan area, Rochester has a rich history as one of the first boomtowns in the United States. Once a manufacturing center famous for its flour mills along the Genesee River, today Rochester is listed as one of the most livable cities in America. It’s also the only city where you can find a museum entirely dedicated to play. There’s a reason why Rochester is called “The World’s Image Center” and you can see it all when you charter a bus to Rochester with Metropolitan Shuttle.
What’s the best time of year to visit Rochester? That depends. Rochester is legendary for its snowfall, having won a “Golden Snowball Award” many times in its history. Winters in Rochester can be snowy, and it takes a lot for locals to cancel events or close shops. Although the spring and summer seasons have plenty of nice days, you can still enjoy a winter’s day from the heated comfort of a charter bus to Rochester, NY.
The Strong National Museum of Play
Built in 1969, the The Strong National Museum of Play exists in partnership with the National Toy Hall of Fame and the International Center for the History of Electronic Games. It’s the only museum in the world dedicated to the history and study of play. Guests can explore games, television, comics, and other media devoted to play. Visitors also can explore interactive exhibits, aquariums, and the worlds of Thomas the Tank Engine, Sesame Street, and the Berenstain Bears.
Finger Lakes Wine Country
Ever thought about organizing a wine tour via charter bus? Maybe you should! The Finger Lakes Wine Country in New York is rich with wineries, restaurants, breweries, markets, and events to keep wine lovers entertained for days. When you’re not enjoying tours of the local wines and spirits, you can chill at Watkins Glen State Park, or check out the sights at Taughannock Falls. Bird lovers can even stop by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. There’s no better destination for a Rochester party bus rental.
Seabreeze Amusement Park
One of the more well-known historic attractions in Rochester, Seabreeze, has long been a place for rides. At the turn of the century, it was a trolley park and picnic grounds, often known as the “Coney Island of the West.” The first ride (a carousel) was added in 1915, and since then Seabreeze has added roller coasters, bumper cars, a teacup ride, a classic Tilt-a-Whirl, and more. Seabreeze offers group rates for schools, family reunions, and any other event you can think of.
