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."

Metered street spaces and parking lots in downtown Lake Geneva will be free until February 28, 2018. The pay stations are covered -- there's no way to pay, even if you wanted to.

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.

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!

I'm sure you can. There are like 2 or 3 kayak rental companies right by the lake.
