Overview

Get this straight: The city is Lake Geneva, the lake is Geneva Lake. Hop aboard a classic yacht for a cruise around the second deepest lake in Wisconsin (135 feet deep and 21 miles around) which is the focal point of a popular resort area also known as "the Newport of the West."

This town caters to vacationers. It has both high end shops and discount shops, a wide variety of restaurants, and a beautiful lake. The locals are very friendly. Great place to visit.

Loved, loved, loved Fontana and Lake Geneva! It’s similar to Traverse City, Michigan without the cherries. Great restaurants, fabulous shops and lots to do.

Lake Geneva was crowded in the main section, but we found a place where there weren't as many people. The weather was very hot so I would recommend wearing a sun hat and sunglasses to reduce the risk of a headache. It's a nice area...More
