Batavia township is a nice place to live. There isn't much nightlife in the area, unless you go to St Charles where they have some great bars, or Even Flow in downtown Geneva. They aren't far commutes, only 15-20 minutes. The only complaint I would have is your not allowed to run for political office in Batavia.

Dope place to live. Events/activities all year round. Very well kept. Schools are great. Lots of unique restaurants. Definitely more to come.
Have lived in this town my whole life and been a good experience. Not a lot of exciting things happening, very family friendly.
