Irondequoit is a town defined by water. Its northern border is the shoreline of Lake Ontario; to the east is Irondequoit Bay, and to the west is the Genesee River. The area is also home to distinct and diverse neighborhoods ranging from the posh estates surrounding Durand-Eastman Park to quiet residential locations like Laurelton; and from waterview homes at Irondequoit Bay to the lakefront community of Summerville, made up largely of summer cottages that have now been turned into year-round residences.
Locals enjoy the beauty of nature at every corner; and because the region has served as a resort area since the late 1800’s, Irondequoit also offers a multitude of recreational attractions. There is an amusement park at Sea Breeze, miniature golf, a rowing club, several beaches, even a bridge that’s removed for boat passage each summer and swings back into place off-season to provide easy access to the Town of Webster!
