Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is a beautiful destination located in Southeastern Wisconsin. Just 10 miles north of the Illinois state line, the city of Lake Geneva is conveniently located between Chicago and Milwaukee. The city’s main attraction, Geneva Lake, is a hub for business and social activity in the area. The lake is one of the few developed lakes in the United States with a public path along the shore for the entire distance along the lake. The Lake Shore Path is approximately 23 miles long. Lake Geneva was recognized as one of a Dozen Distinctive Destinations by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
With Geneva Lake so closely tied to the community, it’s no surprise that parasailing, boating, lake cruises, fishing, and watersports are among the favorite activities available there. It also has twenty golf courses, adventure parks offering ziplining and climbing towers, an all-season waterpark resort, horse carriage ride services, and many orchards and wineries.
Summers offer plenty to do in Lake Geneva including Geneva National, the area’s annual Fourth of July celebration, and the Annual Antique and Classic Boat Show, hosted at the end of every summer and is a weekend-long event that celebrates and awards classic boat owners. Throughout the other seasons, however, Lake Geneva still has plenty to offer: the Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra, 10 fine art galleries, Great Electric Children’s Christmas Parade, International Ice Sculpting Competition, as well as being home to the world’s largest refracting telescope – great for stargazing!
