The RPO is a world-class orchestra! Plus, visitors get the added bonus of experiencing the performance in the house that George built, Eastman Theatre, which is a world-class theatre.
-Jennifer Sutherland, University of Rochester

How fortunate we are. Your “only one” instruction made the question a challenge. By my count your list of 10 wonderful cultural attractions includes seven that are truly world-class.
-John Schmits, Vistage International

I do regularly take visitors to all of the above locations. The Strong Museum gets the biggest response from all age groups for being unique.
-Pat Dangler, Rochester Preschool-Parent Program

The George Eastman House is the only one of the selections that is both unique to our area as well as having a strong appeal to out-of-town visitors.
-Stuart Dizak, eAuctionTraders

The zoo is one of those places you don’t think about every day, but at least once a year we go and I think, “Why don’t we come here more often!?” My wife and I are mid-30s working professionals with no kids … yet we LOVE the zoo! It makes us feel like kids again!
-Michael and Jody Johnson, Rochester
