Getting away from it all from time to time is the perfect way to recharge your batteries and to feel more invigorated and relaxed, and Lake Geneva is a gorgeous vacation destination to head to in the heart of Wisconsin. When you stay in a vacation home in Lake Geneva, you may enjoy fabulous lake views, a large patio or deck, a barbecue grill, a hot tub, a fireplace and other amazing amenities that will make your stay more memorable and enjoyable.
There is much to see and do in Lake Geneva and the surrounding community, and your vacation home in Southern Wisconsin is the perfect starting point for fun each day of your trip. Geneva Lake is a huge body of water that holds opportunities for swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and more. While the water itself is fun, there are also activities along the shoreline and throughout the area that are fun to do. The Geneva Lake Shore Path is a beautiful, shaded walking path that is ideal for leisurely hikes with your family. You can also explore outdoor venues such as Big Foot Beach State Park, Moose Mountain Falls, the Mountain Top at Grand Geneva Resort and others.
While outdoor fun is one of the top reasons why visitors head to a Lake Geneva vacation rental home for their getaway, the area offers more to enjoy. The Timber Ridge Waterpark is a fun place to go on warmer days of the year, and you can learn more about the area with a tour of the Geneva Lake Museum of History. If you enjoy wine, a tour of the Studio Winery is in order. Step back in time with a visit to the Victorian-style home at Black Point Estate. For evening fun, the Tristan Crist Magic Theatre will delight you.
Many people will prepare at least a few of their meals in their private kitchen when renting a home in Lake Geneva, but you may also want to treat yourself to a few meals out as well. Lake Geneva has an exceptional range of restaurants for you to enjoy, and some have a full bar, lake views and other amenities that add to your fun time. Consider trying out the Tuscan Tavern & Grill, the Next Door Pub & Pizzeria, Sprecher's Restaurant & Pub, Simple Cafe, Sopra Bistro, Red Geranium and others before you head home.
