Greece is a very diverse community with excellent neighborhoods and wonderful people. With an excellent variety of stores, shopping and restaurants, there is plenty to see and do. Greece is also less that a half an hour away from two different beaches, Lake Ontario and Seabreeze for plenty of summer fun!

This area definitely has four seasons and winters can be rough! I would live here in the future mainly because of the people, especially my family and friends but would probably move to the east side. The city is violent with a terrible amount of shootings but I live in the suburb of Greece where violence isn't as big of an issue. I have great pride in my high school but do believe enrollment will decrease because of the lack of a sports complex in our community. The housing market in surrounding areas of Greece is booming!

In comparison, places down South (especially) seem to have more construction and growth, so the feel of some cities is "newer." I attend UGA and love the weather, as well as the University. My passion is sports and attending the "Dawgs" football games is one of the best experiences I have had.
Greece is a sprawling suburb of Rochester, NY. Though we are denoted as a town, there are over 90,000 in the town of Greece. Greece offers great schools and quiet neighborhoods. The best part of Greece is that we border Lake Ontario, so water sports and other outdoor activities are plentiful. Because we are in the Finger Lakes region of the state, within an hour's drive are multiple state parks, Niagara Falls, sailing, biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking and many more outdoor opportunities.
