About the Route
NY State Route 250 is a major artery on the east side and home to lots of small businesses and residential neighborhoods; it is absolutely worth a drive.
Its southern terminus is Route 96, a little under a mile east of I-490 at exit 28, just before 96 becomes a divided highway. This is a largely residential area, but you won't actually see houses, as they are on cul de sacs and subdivisions just off of this road. Woodcliff Golf Course is on your left as you head north. Near Garnsey Road, you will start to see houses, but not many.
At Route 31 (Pittsford-Palmyra Road), is Perinton Hills Office Park, which also provides direct access to Perinton Hills Shopping Center. Then come some more subdivisions and then you finally start seeing houses on both sides of the road.
At Hulburt Road, you enter Fairport and Route 250 becomes South Main Street and crosses Route 31F. Just before the Erie Canal, are Fairport Village Landing and Packett's Landing (more strip malls). Crossing the canal, the road becomes North Main Street (be careful of the railroad tracks). This segment is largely commercial.
Crossing Whitney Road, the road change names, becoming Fairport-Nine Mile Point Road, home to Eagle Vale Golf Course - and more subdivisions. Quickly, however, you enter Penfield and intersect with Route 441. Grab a bite to eat at Wegmans, pop your head into Birds Unlimited, and take a quick side trip to Harris Whalen Park.
At Penbrooke Drive, the commercial festivities end and you once again see a mix of trees and houses, intermingled with the occasional farm or industrial complex. Near Route 286, it's pretty much just farms.
Between Bainbridge Lane and State Road, the road changes names again, becoming Webster Road, appropriately named, as we soon enter Webster, where Route 250 goes by the name of South Avenue. You'll pass by water towers, the back entrance to a school, and then enter another commercial district near Route 404. Now, of course, you are on North Avenue, where you could turn onto a ramp for Route 104.
Having continued farther north, the road becomes Webster Road once more and the view largely consists of houses, subdivisions and trees.
Finally, you come to the northern terminus of Route 250, Lake Road, less than a thousand feet from Lake Ontario. Continue northwest on to Lake Shore Drive, and you will have a scenic view of houses with a view of the lake.
