The small town of Rochester gets a lot of tourism thanks to its historic downtown. Main Street alone has 22 different structures that are all over 50 years old, with several on the State Register of Historic Places. Something that has stayed around in the town for a long time is the dog-loving attitude that the city encourages. Rochester continues to grow, and with its growth, comes more and more dog-friendly adventures around town.

Bloomer Park is the largest park in Rochester, with over 200 acres of dog-friendly space made up by open fields and thick forests.

Dogs must remain on a leash 6 feet or shorter at the park, and can enjoy the picnic areas, grilling stations, and fishing spots. Additional features include clean-up stations, water fountains, benches, and trash bins.
