Batavia is one of three “tri-cities” found in Kane County, IL, along the banks of the Fox River. Because of the city’s proximity to the river and access to local trails and parks, residents of Batavia tend to cherish the area forest preserves and outdoor venues. The city has a quaint downtown, too, filled with shops and restaurants within walking distance of one another.
