Batavia, known as “The Windmill City” as the city was the home of six American style windmill manufacturing companies during the latter part of the 19th century, is located on the scenic Fox River. Located 43 miles west of Chicago, the East-West Tollway (I-88) provides quick access to Chicago and other destinations, and major highways. The Union Pacific train line to Chicago can be accessed a few miles away in neighboring Geneva.
Batavia is a vital leg of the tri-cities that also include St. Charles and Geneva. Explore 25 miles of meandering bike trails including portions of the Fox River Trail and the Illinois Prairie Path. And don’t miss the downtown Riverwalk along the Fox River. Fun fact: many buildings found in the downtown historic district were built from limestone that was quarried in Batavia in what is now the home of the Harold Hall Quarry Beach.
A short drive west of downtown will bring you to Batavia’s newer shopping district with a mix of local and national retailers, restaurants, bars and more. Enjoy one of many community festivals such as the Windmill City Festival or the Chili Cook-Off. Batavia also is the home of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, a United States Department of Energy national laboratory specializing in high-energy particle physics.
