Trail
“20+ mile waterfront path around Geneva Lake. Property owners maintain the path through each of their properties, which makes the trail very unique. Each property owner puts their own spin on their part of the shore path, some have placed benches to rest, some have artwork and some even have water stations! If you're not up for the 8-10 hour walk, park cars at two points and do it in segments. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!”

Theme Park Ride / Attraction
“We are definitely partial to the amazing Ice Castles because my husband builds them! With that being said, if it is the winter months and you are looking for something fun to do, climb through tunnels, explore mazes, and slide down ice slides! ”
