Located south of Lake Ontario, Rochester, New York is known for attractions that center around learning and play – most notably the Strong National Museum of Play.
First time visitors are blown away by the size of this museum and it’s quite possible to spend a whole day, if not an entire weekend at The Strong.
It’s not as busy or fast paced as New York City and is New York’s third most populous city (NYC and Buffalo hold spots #1 and #2).
