Things to do when visiting Lake Geneva Wisconsin


Lake Geneva Wisconsin is a beautiful area to spend time away and relax or enjoy some recreational activities with or without the kiddies. I live about 10 miles from here so I enjoy the scenery and shopping often!

There are many things to do in Lake Geneva, browse unique shops in the downtown area, bring or rent a boat or personal watercraft, snowmobiling, skiing, hiking, biking, or just spend some time
relaxing on the beach on the shores of gorgeous Geneva Lake to name a few.

There's a 21 mile Geneva Lake walking path that allows hikers to walk through the yards of century old mansions. Don't forget your camera, you'll get some amazing shots of the area!

Enjoy a relaxing experience at the newly renovated spa or one of many dining options, while an indoor waterpark and kid’s program offer the excitement kids crave.
