This was a lot of fun, watching the youngsters leap off the boat, gather mail, deliver mail and some how get back on the moving boat without getting soaked by falling in. Mail service by boat has been going on for over 100 years and it was fascinating. The boat ride takes about 2.5 hours and the history lesson that... More

Whew, busy, lots of folks jamming into one place. I expected this on labor day weekend, but still. On the nicest day of Labor day weekend, traffic was backed up for miles. Find the back way into the city and plan to walk a bit. If it's nice day, no biggy. The main thing I didn't like was it was... More

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!

Beyond the thunder dome busy on summer weekends. It is a beautiful lake surrounded by magnificent homes. Take the boat tour to really see the lake or take the 20 plus mile walking path around the entire lake. The town has the usual rubbish tourist stores. Overpriced restaurants and the usual ice cream shops. Nevertheless it's a great place to... More
