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 getaway packs in food, fun, magic and adventure

Within minutes of arriving in Lake Geneva, a town with an annual population of about 7,000, as well as thousands of tourists from Chicago and Milwaukee, we found ourselves – not surprisingly – on a boat docked in Geneva Lake. The Lake Geneva Cruise Line offers a variety of tours every day on one of their numerous vessels. We were aboard the Geneva with a dozen or so other people and co-captains Jerry Mortier and Pete Petersen.
