Overview

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."

I never thought I would enjoy a lake destination during the winter, but the Lake Geneva area proved me wrong! The lakes were frozen, Winterfest was in full force, and hot cocoa was available everywhere. It was a winter wonderland!

Lake Geneva is a small place to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. It offers nice places to stay, plenty of shopping, nice variety of places to eat and good entertainment.
