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.

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.
