We've made it

Wow. How about that winter? Sure, it might be expected that we start out this Summer Guide by talking about the cold weather and how Rochester is finally over it all. But really, February was the city's coldest month on record, and it just wouldn't quit.

So we've rightfully earned a warm summer and a chance to make the most of the season.

It's time to get out and around Rochester and enjoy everything that comes with the warm weather. Thankfully there's always a lot to take in.

In this year's Summer Guide, you'll find suggestions on local parks that could give your dog some space to run around (they need to stretch their legs, too), or kid-friendly museums where adults can have some fun as well. If you're in the mood for some culture, we took a look at the summer's upcoming musical theater productions, and put together a roundup of classical music festivals worth a trip away from the city.

Have you ever had lilac ice cream? Or how about lavender goat cheese? We talked with Eat Me Ice Cream, a local boutique ice cream maker, about their growth. But if you're more in the mood for a drink than for ice cream, we offer the recipes for several local bartenders' favorite summer drinks.

It's going to be a busy summer. Keep up with the latest events with our calendar, online at rochestercitynewspaper.com. And of course, we want to know how you're spending your summer, so leave a comment below any of these articles on our website.
