We visited High Falls on a beautiful sunny fall day. It was very impressive and we enjoyed walking across the pedestrian bridge.

We visited High Falls for a photo op of the falls and the city skyline. There is a pedestrian bridge. We stopped to include the Genesee Brewery for a lunch stop with outside seating and view of the falls. Worth an hour of your time.

The falls offer a pretty view and tell the tale of 18th and 19th century manufacturing in this part of the country. Thanks to the Erie canal and the falls, Rochester was once one of the country's most significant manufacturing centers. The falls is how...More
