“I love Rochester because I discover something new every day. I’ve lived here my entire life, so you’d think finding something new would be difficult, but it’s not.
“I’m from Charlotte so the beach is one of my favorite locations in Rochester. Abbott’s is a must every summer!
“But I also love exploring downtown. As a newly established artisan I have been learning what a great city Rochester is for the creative arts. There are so many places that support the arts in a big way. My favorite at the moment is The Hungerford Building. The artists there are all so supportive and I really feel like they’re all working towards the goal of making our community better.
“Also Rochester has awesome coffee shops. My trusty go-to is Java’s on Gibbs St. Next on my list to visit are Pour Coffee Parlor, Joe Bean Coffee and Fuego!”
