CITY OF BATAVIA


The oldest city in Kane County, recently named one of the top 100 Best Small Cities in America by CNNMoney.com, remains as picturesque as when it made the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in 1958. Once the leading windmill manufacturing community in the world, it pays homage with historical windmills that dot the landscape. Batavia is a town filled with annual events including the 4th of July Fireworks, Windmill City Festival and seasonal farmers market. Home to Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the world-renowned center for high energy physics research. Batavia is filled with art, culture and hometown adventures.


VILLAGE OF BIG ROCK


Locals know this charming village with its rich agricultural history and tradition as the best- kept secret around. Picturesque pastures, peaceful neighborhoods and a big-hearted community combine with century-old churches, Victorian homes, breathtaking parks, forest preserves and a 122-year-old annual Big Rock Plowing Match to provide plenty of authentic Americana. You can invite serenity as you cast a line at the fishing quarry, or experience a refreshing and revitalizing weekend retreat at Esther’s Place, a fiber arts studio in an 1895 Victorian style home. Big Rock still retains a “get-away-from-it-all” atmosphere.
