Lake Geneva Trip Guide

Just 60 miles southwest of Milwaukee, this pretty resort town's population of 8,000 swells every summer and fall when vacationers arrive. Hotels, resorts and restaurants hug the lakeshore, and boat tours leave from downtown.
Visitors can walk part or all of a 21-mile path winding around the lake, past grand estates. Photo Courtesy of Lake Geneva Area Convention and Visitors Bureau
