A FEW POPULAR ATTRACTIONS

FUN FACTS

The Park Avenue neighborhood is known for its specialty shops, unique restaurants and friendly atmosphere. The area is widely known for its natural beauty, as both sides of the avenue are lined with gorgeous parks, blooming trees and community gardens. 

 

The Park Avenue neighborhood is the perfect place to take an out-of-town friend or family member for a delicious dinner. The Red Fern offers innovative meals for vegan-friendly diners and patrons. Across the street, Magnolia’s Deli and Cafe serves up one of the best tomato soups in the United States (and, Obama ate here during a quick stop through Rochester with his campaign). In terms of upscale dining options, Roux, Dorado and Vern’s each offer a different style of cuisine-- and they’re located next to each other for convenience. Try one of their fantastic cocktails, or stop by Apogee Wine Bar or Cafe Sasso for a phenomenal after-dinner drink. 

 

In the summertime, festival goers can explore the Park Avenue Festival, featuring live music and hundreds of local vendors. Each December, residents can experience the Park Avenue Holiday Open House, a cheerful holiday celebration highlighting storefronts across the neighborhood. Before festival season, there are several local retailers to support across the Park Avenue area. Parkleigh offers delicious chocolates and specialty gifts at their well-known location. For clothing, Statement Boutique and Mansa Wear sell one-of-a-kind pieces that push back against the “fast fashion” narrative. If you’re a fan of skateboarding, Krudco Skateshop sells all the gear that you’ll need to get out on the road.
