Grove Place


There are a ton of quaint neighborhoods in Rochester that are perfect if you’re moving in from out of state and need a place to live as well as have built-in friendly neighbors and porch buddies. Grove Place is a beautiful option and is considered the "residential jewel" of the downtown area. It has big brick row houses for families but also is near the Eastman School of Music and The Cabaret Theater so you don't have to sacrifice culture in exchange for great homes.
There are also a ton of great suburban type of neighborhoods that are close to hiking, biking, and other outdoor play options.
