Webster, "Where Life Is Worth Living” - the town motto just may say it all! Bordered on two sides by water – Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay, this large suburb provides its residents with over 35 square miles of spacious environments. As proof of how seriously the people of Webster take their motto, they recently purchased over a thousand acres of land to be developed for hiking and recreational use in the future.
Active locals participate in all manner of local organizations from theater guilds to swimming and snowmobile clubs, resulting in neighbors reaching out to each other and forming strong bonds. Whether one’s residence is on the water where sunset views make a spectacular ending to every day or on a sprawling meadow surrounded by scenic farmland, life is, indeed, worth living in Webster.
