For a weekend of the cultural uprising in a relaxed, sophisticated atmosphere and the beauty of Lake Ontario, it is highly recommended to head to Rochester, a city in New York State. Your first stop here will most likely be The George Eastman Museum, a tribute to the pioneer of popular photography and motion picture film. Continue in the same spirit to Charlotte Genesee Lighthouse, a museum and bohemian art gallery with displays of Andy Warhol, Frank Lloyd Wright and many more of the prominent names. Exhale at Genesee Country Nature Center, 5 miles of exhibits and hiking trails open all year round. Just across the bridge you will arrive in High Falls, to hear and see the power that drove Rochester's flour mills in the 19th century. Treat yourself to a typical Rochester treat, Abbots Frozen Custard at Ontario Beach Park. If you wish to explore further, a stunning option of Finger Lakes presents itself nearby at a 9000 square miles of cascading waterfalls, glacial lakes, gorges, and forests.
