February break is here, and there’s much to do. Things such are traveling, going to visit family and even staying here in Rochester. Staycations are fun with the right things planned. You can stay home, book a hotel or even get an Airbnb for the real vacation feeling. Staycations are great for many reasons. For one, they are cheaper than an actual vacation, but you can still experience everything. Instead of losing time and energy to plan a vacation, do a staycation to relax if you are not the energetic type.
Rochester has many things to do, less in the winter than summer but still a wide variety of options. If you do choose to pick and Airbnb, you want to make sure it is the right ambiance and the host is a superhost. Superhosts are experienced hosts who provide a shining example for other hosts, and extraordinary experiences for their guests.
You can make an entire itinerary for your staycation just like a regular vacation. Some ideas for a staycation in Rochester include escape rooms, Lasertron, Dave & Busters, Radio Social, AMF lanes and Comedy @ The Carlson. There is also a very nice coffee shop in downtown Rochester called Javas.
Rochesterian Liannis Benoit definitely believes Rochester is one of the best upstate New York cities. She stated, “We have a lot here, a lot to do and such. Buffalo really only has Darien Lake and Syracuse has a big mall. We have much more.” If you are on a budget I definitely recommend trying to do a staycation because it is worth it.
