Powerful Falls, great view from the Pedestrian Bridge

The Falls really roars when the river is flowing heavy. Unfortunately the museum nearby is closed and restaurants are gone. But if you are in the area it is well worth a visit.

Pedestrian bridge spans the gorge for a spectacular view. Want to savor the view? Stop in at the Genesee Brew House rooftop terrace.

The view of the falls is awesome from this location. Benches line along the walkway so you can stop and take in the scenery. On nights when the redwings are playing its a great place to take in the fireworks.

Wonderful Heritage area that the city is trying to build up! The walking bridge over the Genesee River is very high up. The falls are located right in the middle of the city. We saw a deer down below.

Never saw a waterfall in the middle of a city before. View from the pedestrian bridge is great. Stop in the Genesee Brew House while you're there. Go see Lower Falls if you can.

Nice view. Not too much in the area besides Genesee Brewery, which was worth a visit and a meal. I'll visit again at night to see the lights.

The pedestrian walkway was nice with benches for viewing. The falls area was more a history of power generation than nature park so that was disappointing. But still, WOW. In the middle of the business district. What a surprise to be driving over them and look down.

We walked over the pedestrian bridge to get to the brew house and enjoyed to view of the falls. It's nice because they have benches you can sit and enjoy the scenery. You can also go to the brew house and enjoy the falls and a meal from the side balcony deck.

The best view is from the bridge. Beautiful even in winter, when the falls become partially frozen. I always take friends and visitors to see the falls when they come to Rochester. There's a brewery across the bridge on one side, and a nice restaurant on the other. Make it a nice afternoon out!
