Default Quaint Villages

I am going to be vacationing in the Rochester, NY area and wanted to know what are the must see attractions and the best shopping in the area? I am also interested in seeing some quaint towns with nice downtowns you can stroll through nearby. Any help is appreciated, Thank you.

You must check out the village of Pittsford... there are plenty of cute shops and dining establishments... very close to the Pittsford Plaza and more shops/dining... at night is very nice along the canal... I would suggest eating at Aladins- outside for a great view of the canal and good Mediterranian food.

Default Quaint Villages

As for great shopping I like East View Mall in Victor. As far as quaint villages my very favorite is Sodus Point. There is difference in Sodus and Sodus Point. The point is a quiant little village that has two lighthouses right there in town...it is on Lake Ontario. One of the lighthouses you can climb to the top and see the beautiful view. The other light house is out on a pier and you can walk out to it and be out in the lake. Great boat traffic and a great beach and beach house. Along the way in that area are all of the big apple orchards and fruit stands and some unique little antique places. Take the lake road along Lake Ontario for really unique little places for miles. Good luck, PineHollowGal

Here are the villages you shouldn't miss when in Monroe County. Pittsford, Fairport and Brockport though each town is very special those are very recommended.

While in Fairport get ice cream from either Likity Spilts or Moonlight Creamery. Oh yes walk around the village. Pittsford are simliar with things to do. Both extremely beautiful. While in Pittsford for Ice go to Bill Whals or Ben and Jerrys.

I will add other nice attractions, you want to go swimming go to Durand Eastman. If you have little kids go to Strong National Museum.

As others have said, Pittsford and Fairport Villages have some nice shops, restaurants and strolling along the canal opportunities. You can also take a cruise on the canal from either Village.

Wine tours in the Finger Lakes are fun as well. Have fun!
