While driving through town we stopped for Literally a couple of minutes for a picture by the lake and had a twenty dollar ticket on the car. Zero Grace period? Very unwelcoming.

Loved, loved, loved Fontana and Lake Geneva! It’s similar to Traverse City, Michigan without the cherries. Great restaurants, fabulous shops and lots to do.
