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

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!
