8 hours in Rochester

I am flying into ROC on Tuesday morning around 10. I will be staying in Canandaigua for the next few days BUT have to pick up colleagues at 5:30 at ROC.

What should I do for the day? I will have a rental car.

I was going to drive to my hotel in Canandaigua (Inn on the Lake) and hang out there but wanted to see if the experts could assist.

More than willing to drive a while, understand it is going to be hot, willing to consider almost anything.

Thank you for your help!

Male or female? Interested in shopping or no?

Here are a few of my favorite browsing spots:

Parkleigh Pharmacy (not a pharmacy!) http://www.parkleigh.com/

Craft Company #6 (not really a craft store) http://www.craftcompany.com/

Animas Traders http://www.animastraders.com/

Stevers Candy (closed in July) http://www.steverscandy.com/index.html

Thanks for the response.

Female, like the idea of browsing some cool stores but shopping not a necessity.

I am thinking about High Falls for a while.

I have to map your suggestions and that location to see what may be possible.

Thanks again for your response. Please send any other suggestions, if you feel like it!

Well if you have time to come back to Rochester (you said that you are going to be in Canadaigua for the next few days...) Thursday is the first day of a really cool music festival!

Try this link for more info:

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Try Schoen place in Pittsford - it's on the canal, an interesting place to walk for a little.

Most people from out of town also seem fascinated by visiting Wegman's In pittsford plaza
