Florida residents who want to get a taste of what life is like up north may want to plan a trip to upstate New York. After you book your flight, jump in the car and head to Tampa International Airport (TPA). It will take two hours and forty minutes to fly from Tampa to Rochester if you get a nonstop flight.
Two of the most famous residents of Rochester were George Eastman, an early pioneer in photography, and Susan B. Anthony, a leader in the woman's suffrage movement. You can learn more about them at the George Eastman House and the National Susan B. Anthony Museum and House. If you're looking for some fun after hours, have a drink at one of the bars in the East End district or in the South Wedge, a vibrant neighborhood where students from the University of Rochester often hang out.
The Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) is just 3 miles away from downtown, so you can quickly get to your hotel via rental car or taxi. Daytime high temperatures peak at around 80 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, and in the winter, they usually hover in the low 30s. For 10 days each May, the city hosts the Rochester Lilac Festival, a time for everyone to admire the beautiful flowers and celebrate the spirit of the community around Highland Park.
