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

Nice lake and scenery, many shops, many restaurants and be set to spend many $$$$$$$. We have travel throughout the States and this is not an inexpensive place to visit. You cannot shop or eat at a relaxed pace due to the damn parking meters. They charge $1.00 an hour for every spot in the downtown area and they have... More

Lovely tour around the lake. The guides offer interesting stories and history of the mansions and the dynasties that built them. Frank Lloyd Wright homes are highlighted.

The scenery and rural areas are worth the time spent. There are many great restaurants, hotels ,as well as events in several areas around the lake and the surrounding cities.

We travel to Lake Geneva a couple of times during the summer and even did a winter visit which was really cool! We love to walk the town, visit the shops, and hit the beach. We decided we wanted to share this place with our Texas relatives and chose Lake Geneva as our destination. It was lovely! We all took... More

Took the mailboat tour, saw Black Pointe Estate, stayed at The Abbey did a few other things and ate at a couple of local places. hope to get up there again and see the observatory, walk more...

It is a bit busy on weekends in the summer but there isn't a cleaner lake anywhere. Visit the town of Lake Geneva. Go to Fontana and have a beer at Chucks and walk around the Abbey. Go to Williams Bay and have breakfast at Daddy Maxwells. Go to any of the beaches. Spot a car and walk the shore... More

I have visited almost 20 states of the United States and LAKE GENEVA states on top of all attractions. It can be called as "Honeymoon Paradise" or even elderly people heaven. Young guys riding top Harley Davidson range to all sort of wonderful cars and bikes you can see here. The 1 hour boating ride on the lake is awesome... More
