Lake Geneva Attraction

Walk the Beautiful Lake Geneva Shore Path

There are over 20 miles of beautiful shoreline that surrounds Geneva Lake.  You can walk, jog, or run on a path that covers the entire perimeter of the lake and affords you a closer look at the lake shore homes*.  If you are not up for the full 20 miles, you can walk from downtown Lake Geneva and we will pick you up in Williams Bay (approximately 7 miles) or Fontana (approximately 11 miles).  Once on board, you will hear the live narrated tour as you ride back to your starting point at the Riviera Building.

The shore path is free to the general public.  Tours are scheduled for Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24, with pick ups in Williams Bay at 1:45 pm & 4:00 pm and in Fontana at 2:00 pm & 4:15 pm.  Tickets for the boat are $15 for adults / $10 for kids, with a complimentary non-alcoholic drink when you get on board.

Make your reservations today!

*Lake path walkers must stay on the path and may not trespass on private piers and/or lawns.

Lake Geneva Recognized Nationally and Internationally

Lake Geneva and the Lake Geneva Cruise Line has been recognized statewide and nationally as a great place to get out on the water.  Read the paragraphs below or click on the link for the full story!

 

Thrill List

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Though the Midwest does party lakes as well as anyone, it’s not nearly as noted for its opulent lake towns. But this one, which sits on Geneva Lake, the second-deepest lake in Wisconsin, is home to some of the most impressive, intimidating mansions you’ll find on a midwestern lake not considered “Great.” And although the beautiful people of Hollywood (and tech whiz kids of Silicon Valley) haven’t quite discovered the American Lake Geneva, Hugh Hefner did think enough of it to put a Playboy Club there. It’s also home to the creators of The Young and the Restless and is the birthplace of the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons, so there’s that.

Huffington Post

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin Just north of the Illinois/Wisconsin border, this laid-back watering hole has become quite the Midwest getaway for slowed-down weekends of lakeside moseying through shops and finding a good patio at sunset to lazily sip on a beer. Personal boat rentals can cost you a few mackerels, so get your float on with a boat tour via the Lake Geneva Cruise Line. Whatever you’re into–they’ve got a specialty boat tour for it: ice cream social, champagne brunch, jazz dinner. Step back on land (and back in time) at the Baker House, an 1885 mansion turned hotel, bar, and restaurant great for sipping a cocktail while overlooking the lake.
