Locally owned and operated, The Little Traveler is a Geneva Landmark. A SIMPLE IDEA THAT EVOLVED INTO A ONE-OF-A-KIND EXPERIENCE Downtown Geneva is still known as one of the most unique shopping districts in the Midwest, maintaining a tradition of hospitality, charm, and character. This area is now one of the prettiest streets in Geneva. The Little Traveler has remained the cornerstone of this tradition. The shop has grown considerably since the original Italianate Victorian residence (which now serves as the center section of the shop) to thirty-six rooms of treasures. You’ll be greeted by a caring staff and amazed by the never-ending array of items brought back by our modern day little travelers.

The Little Traveler is my "go to" place for gift shopping. So many great choices, wide variety, a range of price points and always a bulls-eye for those "hard to buy for" people. Also the BEST place to pick up hostess gifts. And it's an...More

If you are a guy or have young kids, it's best if you go get ice cream rather than go in here with your spouse. Around every corner of this store is somebody reminding you that you don't belong here. I'm sure if you are...More
