Victorians embraced death as a cause for elaborate ritual. During this era (1876-1915) the ritual of death became increasingly sophisticated and the period saw the development of the modern cemetery, morticians and public funerals complete with floral arrangements and hearse transportation for the deceased. This program will feature a presentation on Victorian funeral and mourning customs, a first floor house tour at Black Point, and a narrated lake boat tour of maritime mishaps. Walking and stair climbing is required for this tour.

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

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.
