My family may be moving to the Rochester area for a 2-year opportunity with RIT. We'd like to scout out potential neighborhoods for house/condo/apt. renting. Brighton strikes us as a quite suburban, so we're hoping to check out a few areas within Rochester.
We're actually camping down at by Canandaigua (because we also want to get a taste of the Finger Lakes while we're up) and hope to drive into Rochester, park here and there and walk around a few different parts of the city over the weekend.
Do you have any recommendations on nice routes/neighborhoods to stroll through?
Our ideal neighborhood would have grocery shopping within walking distance and nice walks/parks for little kids. Even better, would be a neighborhood with food, shopping, AND A DOG PARK within walking distance, or reasonable drive.
Thanks so much for your time and help!
