This where much of the cities industrial history started. Great views of the High Falls on this bridge. Really nice that Genesee has now opened a tasting room/pub at the end of the bridge. Good for history buffs and nature lovers alike.

The bridge is a great footbridge over the Genesee River, right by High Falls. It has the best view of the falls available. Its a great thing to see when visiting Rochester, absolutely free, and just a minute or two from downtown

Fun to walk across the bridge. Walk from Genesee Brew house to the Triphammer exhibit or vice versa. Either way there are great sights and food

The Pont de Rennes Bridge is a relaxing and enjoyable stroll spanning the Genesee River with a great view of the falls and surrounding area. Go to the Genesee Brewery, park in their lot, enjoy a beverage and view the falls. Very enjoyable!

Fantastic view of downtown Rochester! What other city in America has a 90 foot waterfall running right thru the middle of downtown-?! Worth waiting a few minutes until a train passes by over the falls!
