Lake Geneva is one of the top vacation destinations in Wisconsin. For decades visitors from Chicago and the Midwest have flocked to this upmarket town for the wonderful lakeside activities, amazing hotels and resorts, fun beaches, delicious lakeside restaurants, cute main street shopping, and the famous Lake Geneva boat tours.
The area is made up of three towns: Lake Geneva, Fontana, and Williams Bay. When people say they are going to “Lake Geneva” they usually mean one of these three places.
(Check out my recap of the 3 towns around the Lake that make up the area and you will feel like a local in no time!)
My family has lived in the area since the 1930s so I created this site to help you spend less time planning and more time making memories around the lake!
There are so many things to do for both families and adults that it really comes down to what you like. Want an outdoor adventure? Try the Lake Geneva Ziplines or drive a scooter around the lake during a guided scooter tour. Want a relaxing girls trip or bachelorette party? Stay at one of the luxury resorts and indulge in their spas before hitting up afternoon champagne tea at the Baker House or drinks and dancing in downtown Lake Geneva. Planning a family getaway? Stay at Timberridge Lodge which is a hotel with a waterpark on site and then take the ice cream boat tour that both kids and adults will love!
