Best place in Geneva to just walk around and notice the architecture, old buildings and the downtown boutique shops. Plenty of great places to eat and people watch.

Nice downtown area with plenty of shops and restaurants. Beautiful old architecture to admire on Main Street. Main Street East ends right at the end of Seneca Lake with a wonderful park and paved paths.

We got the walking tour map of South Main Street from the Historical Museum in one of the houses. A great way to get to know the history of this section of Geneva and William & Hobart College.

Loved this cute street! The houses are very pretty and have a lot of character. Plus the views of the lake from the street are amazing.
