Perinton became a booming suburb of Rochester beginning in the 1950s, mixing residential development with relatively restrained commercial growth. Population growth has slowed in the last decade where the focus of new construction has been a bit further out such as in Victor and other outlying suburbs much not in Monroe County.

Perinton Uses Fairport Zip Code
Perinton includes the Village of Fairport, the small area outlined in blue on the graphic 1 to the right. The "Fairport Zip Code", 14450, shown in pink on the graphic, covers all of Fairport. However, it also covers a majority of the Town of Perinton and parts of the Town of Penfield. In fact, there are no "Perinton" addresses; Perinton residences use Fairport, Victor, Pittsford, Penfield, or Macedon mailing addresses.
Voted one of the "Top 100" places to live in the USA in 2005 by Money magazine. You notice this when entering the town where the 'Welcome to Perinton' signs have been modified to inform the visitor of this fact.
Noted for a lot of trails, in fact, Perinton calls itself "Trail Town".
