    Walking the lakeshore path around Lake Geneva is the best way to experience all of the scenery, beautiful homes, the lake, and gorgeous landscaping. It takes between 9 to 11 hours to hike the whole lake. Be sure to allow extra time if you stop to eat at any of the restaurants along the way. Also to note that bathrooms are limited. The path is different depending on how the individual owners want to create the path in front of their property. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes or hiking boots.

    If you don't want to hike the whole lake, you may do sections of it. Please know that some areas have private roads, and you will need to access the path by public areas. Williams Bay is a good place to get on the path as there is free parking across from the beach area.

    We decided to eat off the beaten path and head to a bar on Lake Como and came upon this place. It was a Wednesday evening the special was a burger and homemade chips. We sat the the bar and enjoyed the view of the lake and a delicious burger for 1/2 the price of Lake Geneva Bars.

    If you want to feel like you are in Wisconsin at a country bar check out this place for their nightly specials.

    We went here with our daughter’s family. We had appetizers and drinks and then played pool. It was only $2.00 for the game. Our grandsons and we enjoyed the game.

    We stopped in for some brews. Our kids were bummed they didn’t have any soda so we had to run down the street to buy some. Once they had drinks and we had drinks we were all happy. The boys played games while we sipped on beer. The cherry wheat was amazing. Best one I have ever had. The bourbon barrel aged brew was also tasty. There isn’t a ton of room but we enjoyed it nonetheless.

    There is nothing to do in Lake Geneva when it rains, so we stopped in at Fat Cats for a cocktail! It was a rainy week day evening and there were only a few other people in the bar. Our bartender, Nick, was super friendly and fun to talk to! Yes, it is a dive bar, but a fun one with a great bartender at that! We enjoyed our visit!
