We just finished breakfast and began to walk on the path. After a couple of hours of walking it was to far to turn back and we just continued until we reached the other end which could be considered the halfway point. The area and homes are beautiful. During your walk you are sometimes walking through residents front yards or... More

Beautiful place to visit, it's very close to the beach. Street parking is close to the lake shore path. Recommend to pay with the card so you can get extension msg as well.

This path is right by the lake in front of some of Americas most beautiful homes. The path goes all around the lake. You can go to Williams bay and get picked up by the boat service. The path is taken care of by the owners. So you might be on cement, stone, dirt, gravel, boards. Be prepared for all... More

Please note there are various segments to this path so my review is just for (1). There is no posted map, you can buy a guide but unless you want some... More

This is an easy to walk path that follows the shoreline of beautiful Lake Geneva. It actually goes across the back yards of huge homes. Each home owner takes care of the section of path that goes across their yard. Great way to see beautiful homes and the beautiful lake.

100 years ago. the wealthiest chicagoans built their summer homes on lake geneva. The lake shore path runs just feet from the shore, and offers up close views of the most beautiful mansions on the lake. Great way to spend a few hours.

Well worth the time to look at the gorgeous homes amid the beauty of the water.The homes on the path have lovely flower designs and the path has some benches for you to rest in places.A good way to get some exercise also!
