Get this straight: The city is Lake Geneva, the lake is Geneva Lake. Hop aboard a classic yacht for a cruise around the second deepest lake in Wisconsin (135 feet deep and 21 miles around) which is the focal point of a popular resort area also known as "the Newport of the West."

Our family loves Geneva Lake and the Rivera beach. My grandkids have had so many sandcastle during our summer visits. In fall, it’s pretty with all the pretty colored trees in the background. On clear nights, sunsets are beautiful!

Lots of fun little shops. The Lake trail is a great day hike. Good restaurants. Also a lake boat tour is a must.

Several visits in last 20 years and the place seems to be waning. Many storefronts closed, restaurants just so so, a few new shops but lots of dated merchandise. There used to be a quaint attractiveness but it is gone. Overpriced and lacklustre.

I'm sure you can. There are like 2 or 3 kayak rental companies right by the lake.
