We stopped off here for lunch on our way to Lake Delevan. A lovely little town with lots of interesting shops. Good lunch at Scuttlebutts.

Geneva Lake is a really fresh, clean lake to swim in. You don't feel dirty afterward (unless you, like me, squirm if seaweed touches you. Even so, you can easily swim in non-weedy areas). The water is warmer than Lake Michigan at all times of the year. The sand at Riviera Beach is pretty soft, and you can find interesting... More

A beautiful sunny day called for a boat tour. The houses surrounding the lake were beautiful and the two college students telling us stories about them did a fantastic job. They were informative, funny and interesting. After living in Chicago for 18 years, it was time for a relaxing experience on the lake!

Overpriced restaurants and the usual ice cream shops. Nevertheless it's a great place to... More

my family has been coming to this Lake in Wisconsin for over 60 years from Philadelphia. Deep, clean fresh water. Not muddy at all. So much nicer and refreshing than the ocean.

My wife and I drove up to Lake Geneva to spend the day and had a very nice time. We walked around the city, visited the farmer's market and had a nice lunch outside looking at the beautiful lake.
