Fun to walk across the bridge. Walk from Genesee Brew house to the Triphammer exhibit or vice versa. Either way there are great sights and food

The Pont de Rennes Bridge is a relaxing and enjoyable stroll spanning the Genesee River with a great view of the falls and surrounding area. Go to the Genesee Brewery, park in their lot, enjoy a beverage and view the falls. Very enjoyable!

Fantastic view of downtown Rochester! What other city in America has a 90 foot waterfall running right thru the middle of downtown-?! Worth waiting a few minutes until a train passes by over the falls!

This bridge is a beautiful little walk in the city. You get the traditional view of High Falls from here. It is easily accessible. It has several benches you can sit on and enjoy the scenery.
