Great-Valley is located in Cattaraugus County in southwestern New York near the Allegheny State Park and the Pennsylvania border. Right next to Chautauqua County, this area is primarily rural with rolling hills, farmland and lush forest. It's a popular region for vacations, due to its picturesque landscape, hiking and camping in the summertime and skiing in the wintertime. Chautauqua Lake is a short drive from Great Valley and is one of the highest navigable bodies of water in the U.S., at 1,308 feet above sea level. The lake is well known for its fishing and boating, swimming, hiking and picnicking. Great Valley is home to several interesting tourist attractions. The Chapel Hill Raceway holds exciting weekly races for the whole family, and Pumpkinville is a very enjoyable place to visit in the fall, one of the oldest original pumpkin farms in the state. Hayrides, pony rides, a corn field maze, farm animals and "pick your own pumpkins" are just some of the activities at Pumpkinville. Nearby Midway Park offers a beach, arcade, rides, go-karts, bumper boats and boat docking facilities. Other attractions in Cattaraugus County include the Salamanca Rail Museum, which is housed in a restored 1912 passenger depot, and the Seneca Iroquois Museum.

Great Valley Weather & Climate

Western New York experiences four distinct seasons. Average January temperatures are above 22 degrees Fahrenheit. The Buffalo area receives some of the heaviest snowfalls in the nation, and over half of the annual snowfall comes from "lake effect" snows and is localized. Summer temperatures average around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. The average date of the last frost is near the end of April in the Buffalo metro area, but in mid May well inland. Summer is pleasant in this region, with plentiful sunshine, warm temperatures and moderate levels of humidity. Rainfall is adequate, many times coming at night so that it's seldom a problem for outdoor activities. The stabilizing effect of Lake Erie helps inhibit thunderstorms and modifies the extreme heat that approaches from the Ohio Valley.
