Boat tour around Lake Geneva

Enjoyed the narrated boat tour explaining the history! Very interesting to hear who owns all the houses around the lake.

It's a well know place to visit to see fall color in Wisconsin. I would try visit even next summer. It's beautiful. Plenty parking space, lots of lake facing benches. Wisconsin take care of everything to keep tourists happy. Take a sunset walk, try a local restaurant and take few pictures back home.

This is a beautiful Lake. Real nice shops near by. You can go swimming in summer. Just a real nice lake all around. You have to pay for parking, but it's worth it

We visited the town of Lake Geneva on Geneva Lake. Our hotel overlooked the lake and while we were there for a quiet visit, we saw the many sports enthusiasts taking advantage of this beautiful lake. There was fishing and water sports as well as lake tours going on. I believe the lake is over 7 miles around, and you... More
