I saw it too. Rochester has never been good at tooting it's own horn, yet tourism adds over a billon dollars to local coffers. Funny how little the community leaders promote the region yet we still grow, even if ever so slowly.

Funny so much mention of craft beer in that article, kind of a red flag. I love that quality craft beers now is so prominent pretty much everywhere but it's become sickening how craft beer is constantly connected to image, prosperity, success, etc.

No mention of the Finger Lakes wine region, no mention of the Strong Museum of Play, two of the largest drivers of tourist. Another lame article, except they are right about the premise. Rochester never puts out a compelling reason to visit here.

Agreed, but it did mention the finger lakes, for ice wine, and fine museums, but clearly a typical shallow fluff article. Jeez, the finger lakes is huge just for the scenery alone, let alone the boating, booze, parks, & small towns. I heard there's another lake nearby Rochester too, pretty big one I hear.

I would move to Rochester in a heartbeat if I had a job offer, but engineering jobs are not common. It is a very under-rated city.

What kind of engineering jobs are you looking into? I think that people don't think that Rochester is more white collar than people realize.

There looks like there are some openings relevant to your degree, but I'm not sure about experience required or other factors.

This is something I've mentioned before too, but Rochester really should build itself into a destination for family vacations. We already have a major attraction for families in the Strong Museum, and the expansion that the Strong is planning is a major step further towards that. But I think with a family friendly themed restaurant around play, and maybe another attraction right there such as an aquarium, or an indoor theme park of some sort, it would really turn it into a major destination. Get some additional activities in MLK park and a laser show, and that would be the icing on the cake. Heck, even the Brew House planned expansion can tie in the beer scene with also being family friendly for the parents that may want to do something "adult" that the kids can also go to. With High Falls, and the museum, the city has multi-day activities.

And this is without even mentioning all the other attractions right in the city such as Seabreeze amusement park, Susan B. Anthony House, George Eastman Museum, The Memorial Art Gallery and the Rochester Museum and Science Center and the Planetarium.
