Explore Lake Geneva
Outdoor activities abound in the summer months with so much to share and enjoy. The myriad of activities and events are compelling escapes. Boating, fishing, golf, hiking, water skiing, swimming, biking, horseback riding mixed with festivals, fairs and special events to create a vacation destination that shouldn’t be missed.
Landlubbers can take a self-guided hike around the perimeter of the lake, which stretches some 21 miles. Laid-back, however, doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do. Choose from museums, a water park for younger kids, or the world’s largest refracting telescope at Yerkes Observatory. Lake Geneva is filled with homes and buildings from earlier times which represent the frontier, pioneering and later periods. Leisurely cruises on restored historic yachts and replicas of paddle wheel steamers carry passengers past stately lakefront summer mansions, including some of the Victorian estates.
So much to do, yet so comfortable to do nothing. It’s all here in the Lake Geneva area. Start off your day stepping back into time at Old World Wisconsin — America’s largest rural outdoor living history museum. Next it’s off to a cruise on the Geneva Lake Cruise line. Next, it’s tee-off time at over 20 of the challenging golf courses in the Geneva Lake area. After golf, perhaps it’s time for the Geneva Lake Greyhound Track. By now you’ve got a hearty appetite and it’s time to dine out at some of the best restaurants in the state. Enjoy first rate service while you recap the day’s events. It’s all here and waiting for you in Lake Geneva.
