Rochester Vacations

Best known as the home of the renowned Mayo Clinic, Rochester boasts far more than an excellent medical system. The city is also a great place to relax with loved ones. You'll enjoy traversing the area's amazing bike trail system and relaxing near one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes.

Major Attractions

The ideal vacation in Rochester involves plenty of time spent outdoors, for, contrary to stereotypes about Minnesota weather, the area is actually a great destination for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. Spend an afternoon strolling on the paths near Silver Lake, where you'll encounter plenty of native vegetation and even more Canadian geese. For wintertime Rochester vacations, your best bet is Quarry Hill Park, where you can strap on a pair of cross-country skis or snowshoes and make the most of the snowy weather. You can access a variety of other well-maintained ski trails with the help of car rentals in Rochester.

After a long day of hiking, biking, or skiing, you'll be eager to relax at one of downtown Rochester's many amazing restaurants. These are conveniently located near several prominent hotels in Rochester. Pizza and burgers definitely dominate the downtown culinary scene, although seafood, steak, and tapas are also plentiful.

Recurring Festivals and Events

In southern Minnesota, the latter half of June is invariably dominated by Rochesterfest, an exciting event that features a huge parade, treasure hunt, hangar dance, and plenty of other entertaining activities. When you attend Rochesterfest, you can use some of the money you saved on Rochester vacation packages to splurge on rib shots, cheese curds, and other tasty treats.

It's easy to have a blast in Rochester without blowing your budget. You can rest assured with Travelocity's Price Guarantee, knowing your accommodations will be affordable. If you find a lower price, Travelocity will match it and refund the difference.
