2. House of Guitars. This is the largest guitar store in the world, attracting famed musicians from Les Paul to Garth Brooks. Founded in 1964, the store has walls that are covered with signatures, and it is truly a piece of musical history.

3. Seabreeze Amusement Park. Sitting to the north of the city on Lake Ontario, this fourth-oldest amusement park in America opens each weekend to provide guests with thrilling roller coasters, thrill rides, and a midway for all ages.
