Downtown's 12 Favorite Things: Jolly Trolley Tours

Written by: Gabriel Yeager

Start a new family tradition this Christmas. The Rochester Trolley & Tour Company offers extra-special magic this holiday season with the Jolly Trolley Holiday Lights Tour.  Enjoy classic holiday music aboard the warmth of a lighted, decorated trolley.   The Jolly Trolley operates through New Year’s Eve, and offers rides 7 nights per week. You have the option to choose between the North lights tour and the South lights tour. The North lights tour features “fun, creative, and family orientated north residential light displays.” The South lights tour features the “classic elegance of Rochester’s South residential light displays.  Both rides feature special surprises including a visit with Santa Claus at his Rochester workshop.

The Rochester Trolley & Tour Company website features raving revues of the trolley tour. Jacqueline says it was "very enjoyable even on a below zero evening." David, who also gives the tour 5 stars, says the "tour was fantastic. It was very entertaining and a great way to see all the lights of Rochester."

All holiday light tours depart from the Peace Plaza in front of the Downtown Marriott.  Reservations are required for guaranteed seating. For tickets and prices, please visit:  Rochester Trolley & Tour Company.
