In the nicer weather months we can expect them go to our festivals and whatnot. But also advertise it as a gateway to places like NYC or Boston.
Rochester has more to offer than people give it credit... Why on EARTH wouldn't consumers jump on this and head over here to shop? It could seriously boost our economy and promote Rochester as a travel destination- we have golf, wineries, outlets, dining, history, festivals, sports, and quaint villages to visit... Did you know Rochester made Bon Apetite recently for several of our dining establishments? I am unsure of what issue... but look it up. Our East End is actually quite nice, we have Spa vacation packages at such posh places as the Del Monte and Woodcliff, Strong Museum of Play, the Science center, George Eastman house... a lot of history is here... perhaps you should take the time and visit your city and see what it has to offer YOU and Toronto! You might be amazed....
