About Genesee County, NY «

Welcome to Genesee County, NY, located 30 minutes between both Buffalo and Rochester, and only 45 minutes from the thunderous Niagara Falls! You’ve come to the right spot to create family memories that will last a lifetime. Children can’t resist the lure of rides, games, shows and more at Darien Lake Amusement Park. Bring your camera and capture Bobby’s excitement at his first trip on the “Ride of Steel,” or Susie’s soaking on “Grizzly Run.”

Sports enthusiasts will want to visit one of our top-notch golf courses. Our golf packages are so popular; groups return year after year and bring their friends. And for those who don’t golf, there are an abundance of shopping opportunities on quaint Main Streets that are a throw-back to a simpler time.

Restaurants thrive in our charming towns and villages, so you’ll discover a wide array of farm-fresh cuisine, served by friendly folks who enjoy taking time to chat. As the sun goes down, you may test your bravery with a ghost hunt at Rolling Hills Asylum, then stay the night at one of our many motels, hotels and campgrounds. No need to spend your vacation time checking into a new hotel each night. You can explore the Greater Niagara Region with day trips from your central location.
