For years, the dream has been the same: the soft warbling of a creek as it rolls through the quaint buildings of a downtown area. You know this place, even if you’ve never seen it before.
But this isn’t a dream. This is Batavia, and you’ve finally made it. Drive through, you’ll know exactly where the old mill used to sit along Tonawanda Creek, which does indeed creep through the city. Come: stay in our hotels in Batavia, NY and find the place your subconscious told you about.
Place your finger on the heartbeat of the city—and much of the state—with a visit to the Holland Land Office Museum. Innocuous yet still somehow stately, this stone structure oversaw many of the land deals that made Western New York what it is today. Look beyond its columns and into its rooms, which host hundreds of artifacts. This slightly yellowed paper here: is this the deed to the mill?
Ah, the mill. Batavia hotels near the creek provide a fine place to rest after a day of listening to its song. The mill itself is long gone, save the shadows that lurk near your memory, but the dam is still present. Explore the waterway: Splash through the shallows, or rent a kayak and glide out in search of adventure. What will you find beneath the shade of the overhanging trees?
Should you find yourself yearning for a faster pace of life, simply make your escape. Choose one of our fine rental cars in Batavia and cruise 40 miles to the east, where “The Queen City” of Buffalo is waiting for you. Roam along the Lake Erie waterfront, or tour the remarkable structure of the city hall. Feel free to linger; there are plenty of Buffalo hotels for you to relax in, if you choose to extend your trip.
Your greatest journey need not be relegated to dreams. Whether you seek hotels near Batavia to indulge in the quiet life, or you need an exhilarating trip into the big city, Travelocity is here to assist. Follow your fantasies. Find that creek. Perhaps you’ll find yourself at the same time.
