    Omg! It was amazing. I have been to a couple magic shows, but this was my favorite. They are very interactive with children. It is also great for all ages. Over all it was amazing and would recomend!

    We loved this visit. Wasn’t sure what to expect but really enjoyed our time. We laughed and laughed. The animals were more than happy to have a taste of the treats sold by the front gate. They are not shy about wanting to get to know the visitors. I recommend visiting.

    Black Point Estate is a wonderful gem on Lake Geneva WI. It's really two tours in one. In order to get to the estate, you have to take a 40 minute boat trip from Ravinia Pier. This is the first tour, which is history of the lake and the houses you pass. Once you arrive, there are 100 stairs to climb. The estate has beautiful gardens and a wrap around porch to rest after the walk up the stairs. The tour is guided and the docent are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. On the return boat trip, the lake tour continues with information about the houses on the other side of the lake. The boat offers refreshments and snacks, along with a rest room.

    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.

    My husband and I did the gangster’s paradise room which was the hardest room and it was hard!! We did not escape! We were close, probably could have done it in another 10 minutes or so. It was a lot of fun, highly recommend doing this!!

    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 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.

    My husband and I drove an hour to Lake Geneva and rented electric bikes for the afternoon. We had a blast! We rode the tour around Lake Como and Lake Geneva. Leaves were turning and the sites were absolutely beautiful. Lake Geneva Scooter Tours and Rental staff were accommodating, extremely informative and friendly. We will definitely do this experience with them again soon!
