Thousands of people come to the annual "Arts and Apples Arts festival" This is what the downtown area merchants have written about the area.
A perfect mix of historic and hip, downtown Rochester attracts both local residents and visitors from across the state of Michigan. Downtown Rochester is home to more than 350 shops, salons, restaurants and professional service businesses; 85% of which are independent merchants. Just a small number of national chains. Which makes the stores and restuarants more unique. Downtown Rochester’s natural beauty is attributed to the waterways that surround the city and the abundant green space that three parks and two winding trails offer. Whether you’re here for a day, a week or a lifetime, we hope you enjoy your visit. They mean that too....So come check out the city. The city has over 25 churches too.
