Visiting Geneva on the Lake for 1st time, any suggestions?

Hi,

I will be visiting Geneva on the lake area for 4 days, would like any suggestions of places to go, sights to see nearby. I know there are the covered bridges, wineries. Any great little shopping places? Best places to eat?

Between Cleveland and Geneva on the Lake is Pickle Bills. I enjoy eating there when I have the opportunity: http://www.picklebills.com/

The opposite direction, in Ashtabula is a place that is on my list to try since a friend suggested it: http://www.briquettessmokehouse.com/

Another on my list of things to do is the wine shuttle: www.thelodgeatgeneva.com/play/wine-shuttle

Head south on SR-534 to Harpserfield to check out the covered bridge : https://goo.gl/maps/PJw3t

I am not sure what you know about Geneva on the Lake. Be prepared. It is a little run down. I have been going there for 40 years. I have found a couple places that are updated and very nice. The town is 95% cash only so be prepared. Eddiies Grill is great for a quick lunch. The firehouse winery has decent dinners. Just outside town is Ferrantes winery, it is awesome.

Enjoy!

As stated, Geneva On The Lake is a bit jaded but the Firehouse winery is nice.

In Geneva, the Old Mill Winery in the old mill by the railroad tracks is different and our usual stop when in town.
