I have visited almost 20 states of the United States and LAKE GENEVA states on top of all attractions. It can be called as "Honeymoon Paradise" or even elderly people heaven. Young guys riding top Harley Davidson range to all sort of wonderful cars and bikes you can see here. The 1 hour boating ride on the lake is awesome... More

Beautiful Lake Geneva has so much to offer. The various boat cruises are great!!!. Swimming on the main beach, so refreshing. Take your own boat out for the day and dock at the restaurants to eat. Hiking the path around the lake, great. Even the town in general, touring the streets looking at the homes, shopping, eats, and even antiques.... More

On a beautiful summer day, we enjoyed an hour-long boat tour where we got to see some of the beautiful houses lining the lake. The tour guides were very informative about the various properties. My only complaint is that several families traveling together on the boat let their grade-school-age kids run wild, making it hard to hear the commentary.

We took a drive around the lake and stopped at a couple of the small towns that dot the shoreline. It is a very relaxing place to visit, but can be quite busy on weekends.

Enjoyable, and the young man talking about the estates was entertaining. Get in line early because the good seats are on the right side of the boat.

Nice lake on the edge of the village with the same name. It has a small sand beach as well as a walking path sorrounding it. There is also a public park where in summer open musical performances take place. In the place there are several restaurants and hotels.

On a hot day we wished we had also brought our suits for the beach instead of only taking one of the tour boat tours. The town is enjoyable for dining, shopping and people watching. Good Daytrip!

Beautiful area for a weekend get away from Chicago......or any other big city........as long as you don't go there over a weekend. The lake is beautiful as well as many of the homes surrounding the lake. Several fine golf courses are within 30 minutes of wherever you are staying. Inadequate parking in town and around the lake make this area... More
