Two best spots to watch the sun set in Webster, NY!

Sunsets are perfect when they are near water and luckily for all near lake Ontario, there are great places where you can watch as the bright yellow sun as it sets over the horizon. Some of Rochester's best sunset views are located in Webster, NY on Ontario Lake. Weather you're on land or floating on a boat in the Lake, the satisfaction of watching the sun set by open water is relaxing, refreshing, and does so much repair work to the soul. Spending just 10-15 minutes a day or even only a couple times per week will bring so much peace to your day, I promise.

We love hidden gems here in Rochester, NY and this just happens to be my favorite one in the summer. We have really pretty sunsets in Rochester and if you want the best view, head over to Ontario Lake. This video of the sunset is located on Lake Rd in Webster, just before Castaways on the Lake. There is a big field with plenty of space for sitting! I highly suggest you check out sunsets here in the upcoming summer months.
