Your First Stop: The Genesee County Visitor Center

Are you on your way to nearby Niagara Falls from New York City or vice-versa? Passing through, from one of our neighboring states or maybe taking the short drive from Ontario, Canada?

Are you ready for a break from driving? Maybe you need a lunch stop or an evening of rest?  Or could you be looking for a weekend of Golf but need to find the best pub in town? Maybe you are here for a concert and craving our best slice of pizza, or wonder where you can find the best BBQ? Curious about the birthplace of JELL-O or darker history such as the Linden Murders or the hauntings at Rolling Hills Asylum?


Don’t leave it up to search engines to help you find, “the best chicken wings in town!” 

Exit the NYS I-90 at Batavia (exit 48) and stop by our state-of-the-art Visitor Center, located in our hotel district just one mile from the thruway and on the same street as the Batavia Downs Gaming & Hotel

Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly staff, all of whom reside in the area. They are expertly trained to help you find exactly what you’re searching for. Enjoy a warm welcome and learn more about all the things to see and do in our area.

Way-find on our large-scale state and regional maps, browse local and regional print materials, and charge your phone while you take a break from driving. By the time you leave, you’ll feel like you’ve visited with an old friend and you’ll be prepped and ready to enjoy your time in our community.

Travelling before or after-hours? No problem! Our vestibule is open 24/7 and is always fully stocked with maps, dining guides, visitor guides, and more!
