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."

It is a Great Lake with tremendous history. We took a Lake tour and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the mansions and hearing the history of them. Great place not far from Chicago.

Geneva Lake, or as many refer to as Lake Geneva, is our favorite easy to get to get away. Close enough to home and yet just far enough away. So many things to do if you want to, or just relax. Several nearby towns also...More

One of the most enjoyable and beautiful walking excursions in Lake Geneva is to walk along the lake or see how far you can get around the 21 mile lake. On either side of the lake are beautiful houses that you can check out up...More

Our family loves Geneva Lake and the Rivera beach. My grandkids have had so many sandcastle during our summer visits. In fall, it’s pretty with all the pretty colored trees in the background. On clear nights, sunsets are beautiful!

Lake Geneva is very beautiful - with a 22 mile path that goes around the entire lake. If you take the path south from the town of Lake Geneva you will see some huge, gorgeous properties. We only walked a couple of miles before turning...More

Lots of fun little shops. The Lake trail is a great day hike. Good restaurants. Also a lake boat tour is a must.

Geneva Lake is a naturally created lake (formed by ancient glaciers) as opposed to a man-made structure formed by damming a stream or river. Therefore, it is very clear and affords great opportunities to view the beauty of the lake bottom in many places. Fish...More

We took a boar ride to view the Gilded Age mansions from the water - but otherwise, you cannot view it on a scenic drive, nor is there much of a beach for relaxing. The little town is not as charming or interesting as I...More

Wow!! We live in Florida , so spending time here was such a treat. The lake is just gorgeous, the homes that you walk past when walking around the lake are beyond stunning!!

Several visits in last 20 years and the place seems to be waning. Many storefronts closed, restaurants just so so, a few new shops but lots of dated merchandise. There used to be a quaint attractiveness but it is gone. Overpriced and lacklustre.
