Take any warm, sunny day and there's no better place for Rochester residents than Sea Breeze to satisfy a craving for ice cream or a root beer float while grabbing a Zweigle's hot dog.
Make it a sizzling, humid day and let the steady breeze and cooler temperatures coming off Lake Ontario refresh you. Keep an eye out for the occasional Fifties car making a nostalgia run down to "Hot Dog Row" for a burger with hot sauce at Bill Gray's or Don's Originals. Maybe enjoy a beachside Rum-Rita while watching the slowly setting sun from the Tiki Bar at Marge's.
For a lucky few, those spectacular sunsets, sandy beaches, bonfires at the shore, kids roller-coastering at the Seabreeze Amusement Park or roasting smores on a warm summer night come wrapped in a communal spirit that has become our lifestyle.
Surrounded by Lake Ontario on the north and Irondequoit Bay on the south, the one-mile stretch of sandy beach that’s Sea Breeze makes every day feel like a holiday.

If you’re looking for a secluded retreat to get away from it all, a house on the beach shouldn’t be your first choice. Colorful sun downs, a back yard stretching all the way to Toronto – all good. But to truly enjoy beachfront living you need caring, fun loving and fun to be with neighbors with a deep-rooted live and let live attitude.
We’re blessed with the best.
Most residents occupy their Sea Breeze homes year-round, braving the punishing Nor’Easters blowing in over Lake Ontario during the winter. For Terry and me, the good life includes lots of garage space for collecting cars. That, and needing a home that can accommodate my software publishing company would ordinarily be reason enough for why we live in Webster when the snow flies. But you probably know better: deep down it’s those frigid Nor’Easters.
