Olcott Vacations Made Easy

Vacations are meant to be relaxing, but planning a vacation takes time and can create unnecessary stress. Vacationing in Olcott Beach and Newfane is the most relaxing type of vacation. You can move at your pace. Shop at locally-owned stores that you can feel good about. Eat at places that are owned by the members of the community, not chains.

We’ve made your stay easy. Here is an organized calendar of events and itineraries for every type of visitor so there’s no wasted time. You’ll always have something to do. If you want to do something, that is. You can always just relax on the beach or take a walk through Krull Park.
