Nicknamed “The Flower City”, Rochester is famous for dazzling floral displays that can be admired year-round at outdoor and indoor venues. The city has four distinct seasons, with spring and summer being the most popular times with tourists. Spring, with its blooming gardens and parks to explore, can still be quite cold with temperature highs ranging from 36 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer is a great time for warm weather travelers to visit with an average temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit and plenty of outdoor activities to experience. Lower temperatures in fall slow tourism down considerably. Average highs are 46 – 81 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you’re looking for better deals on hotels, fall may work for you; just be prepared for the chance of snow. During winter, temperatures drop even more to freezing levels, so there are plenty of cold weather activities like ice-skating, skiing and sledding to look forward to. Every month, Rochester sees at least 5 days of precipitation, so always be prepared and bring along a jacket or umbrella.
Beaches like Ontario Beach Park are most often visited during July, as the weather is usually above 70 degrees fahrenheit with a low chance of rain.
