Healthy, Smart, Vibrant You
Grab your friends and get ready to explore the amazing boutiques and shops downtown.
Take a break for a mani, pedi, updo or touch up at one of our over 30 downtown salons.
With burgers, Union Mac & Cheese, noodle bowls, coal-fired pies and the like: the new crew is working to keep the legend of Vinsetta Garage alive on Woodward Avenue and beyond.
Grab your bike and see Downtown Rochester from the other side, the trail side that is. The Paint Creek Trail runs through downtown and along the Paint Creek.
Any Saturday morning is incomplete without a stop at the Downtown Rochester Farmers’ Market. This fresh from Michigan market features farm fresh produce, flowers, specialty foods, baked goods, cheeses, meats, gnocchi and much more.
You rode your bike, did some shopping – sounds like a pretty good day so far. What could make it better? How about lunch & craft beer at the Rochester Mills Beer Co., located in the restored Western Knitting Mills Building.
Holidays in Rochester
Holiday Magic Found. Aglow from the Monday before Thanksgiving through the New Year, The Big, Bright Light Show is a holiday light spectacular unlike any other, featuring over 1.5 million points of light covering the buildings of Downtown Rochester.
Held the first weekend in December, the Kris Kringle Market features handmade gifts, crafts, fresh greens, specialty foods, live music and Santa, of course! Did we mention the strudel & gluwein?
Held the third Sunday in December, Caroling in the City is like stepping into a Christmas card as we close Main Street to make merry with live music, a giant tree, sweet treats, an Ugly Sweater Contest and caroling, of course.
