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."

We drove completely around the lake and at each stop the views were wonderful. My boyfriend got a chance to fish just for fun, but threw them back. He was a happy camper and thanked me for letting him fish a bit during our stay.

If you have a few days to kill walking around the lake is the best way to see all the magnificent homes. If you're short on time, take one of the boat tours which give some good history of the homes and great photo ops.

This was our first visit to Lake Geneva, but it will not be our last! The town is very historic and worth exploring. The lake is absolutely beautiful!!

Beautiful clear spring fed lake, about 21 miles in circumference. Several boat tour options and boat/kayak/paddle board/jet ski rental businesses available. This attraction is what makes Geneva a place to visit. Will return often!

Rented a boat and spent the day on the lake just a 10 minute ride from Grand Geneva resort. Rented a pontoon and tubes and the family had a great time.

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