  • School of rock

    You never know what you'll learn at Mt.Hope Cemetery
    Need an antidote to the hustle and bustle of Rochester's summer festivals? A serene place where your chances of running into a guy with an iguana perched on his shoulder are practically nil?

  • Hot tunes for hot temps

    Music for every one of the 83 days of summer
    Air conditioning? Re-runs?

  • The old and the beautiful

    How and where to find the best antique and garage sale deals this summer
    Judy Adnepos leaned over one of the vendor tables at the Rochester Public Market's Garage Sale looking through jewelry, dishes, old blankets, and cut glass. "I'm not looking for anything in particular, but I was hoping to find one of those old children's rocking horses," she says.

  • What's in the water?

  • Sun screens

    From brain-bending puzzles to plane-boarding pythons, 15 can't-miss summer movies

    Keep the kids off the couch this summer
    They're coming. Those two terrible words that will destroy a summer vacation faster than Chevy Chase.
