Houston TX

What are your favorite things about Rochester?
I love the size of the city and wide variety of activities it offers. Coming from Houston, I was worried I would miss the amount of restaurants, shows and events that you would get in a big city, but I've found that Rochester has all I need without the traffic.  After two years, I'm still finding new restaurants and breweries to try. I've been to many more shows here than I did in Medical School in Houston. I also love that I can live right in the city, but run one mile and be on a trail in the woods, drive 20 minutes and be at the beach or kayaking or drive one hour and be on the ski slopes.
