“Up and coming area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

There are more bars and restaurants coming up in this area and I hope the trend continues. Rochester needs more of this type of thing to promote people coming downtown.

“visit falls, visitors center, the gallery and the brew house tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is must seei n downtown. The visitors center has a gallery up stairs. The falls themselves are impressive and you can have brew and a sandwich overlooking the falls at the newly opened Gennesse Brewery visitors center.

“Nice Enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I was expecting a bit more from what I had read/heard about the area, but I'm still glad we went. It was interesting to see the waterfall and there was a rainbow which was cool, and some deer on the small field in the middle of the water. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it again but it was a nice walk and something to incorporate into our outings that day. There's a parking garage around the corner if you need somewhere to park.

“High Enough To Hear the Splash”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

What a beautiful sight to see. We enjoy viewing waterfalls. We viewed the falls from the bridge,. it was so peaceful to view. The bridge is pristine and there are lovely park benches adequately placed about..many views of old factories and brewerys.

“Interesting use of the old buildings...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I'm a history buff so I enjoyed seeing what has been done with the area. Visited on a Sunday morning and had to drive around looking for parking. I can't imagine where people park when it is busy. My kids enjoyed walking the bridge and walking around the area.
