The Finger Lakes Sights

High Falls Heritage Area

Fodor's Review

Stand on a bridge over the Genesee River, watch and listen to the High Falls cascading 96 feet, and feel the power that drove Rochester's flour mills in the 19th century. The Triphammer Forge, a reconstructed waterwheel, is one of the largest in the state. Frontier Field and Eastman Kodak world headquarters are across the street. The High Falls entertainment district has pubs, clubs, and restaurants, as well as frequent events in summer and a laser show every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

The High Falls Visitor Center has a museum, with interactive exhibits, that give an overview of Rochester history. 60 Brown's Race, 14614. 585/325–2030. Free. Wed.–Fri. 10–5, Sat. noon–6, Sun. 1–5.
