Rochester Brooks Gun Club is very fortunate to be located in the beatiful Rochester-Finger Lakes region of New York State. We also have two “United States Wonders” nearby, Niagara Falls and the “Grand Canyon of the East” – Letchworth State Park. How about Sonneburg Gardens …..oh so much to see and do!
For those who wish to see Niagara Falls from the Canadian side (recommended) please note that entry to Canada requires a passport or enhanced US drivers’ license, and that your shotguns will not be permitted unless you have the required paperwork and have paid a registration fee. Rochester-Brooks will be pleased to hold shotguns in safekeeping for you if you wish to make this trip, just ask at the registration desk.
The Finger Lakes are known for producing excellent wine, particularly for world-renowned Rieslings. That being said, the Finger Lakes have so much more to offer. The region also boasts a number of breweries, distilleries and hard-cider producers.
The Rochester-Finger Lakes are not just for the 21+ crowd; there are activities here for all ages. The renowned Strong Museum of Play, the Seneca Park Zoo, or journey through the stars at the Strasenburg Planetarium. Museums are spread across the region, including the Glenn H. Curtiss Aviation Museum, displaying the history of Glenn Curtiss, who was awarded U.S. Pilots License #1 in 1911 and held the motorcycle speed record from 1907 through 1930.
If you are looking to get outdoors, the Finger Lakes are a must-see destination. From hiking and biking, to boating and fishing, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. There are also a number of state parks with scenic beauty to behold; visit Watkins Glen State Park to see the gorge trail complete with 19 waterfalls.
