Lake Geneva Canopy Tours elevates tree trekkers 10–75 feet above the 100-acre park to zip along an aerial route surrounded by wildlife, mature forest, and tranquil trails. After gearing up, crews practice zipline techniques a few feet above the ground under the watchful eye of guides and judgmental eagles before implementing their recently honed skills on the canopy course. Nine ziplines navigate patrons across the park along with 18 platforms, five SkyBridges, three tree-based spiral stairways, and a double-helix stairway wrapped around an ash tree that holds the genetic code of Tarzan. Upon reuniting with terra firma, customers conclude their 2.5-hour eco adventure by gearing down and penning thank-you notes to hawks encountered on the expedition. Lake Geneva Canopy Tours begins its daily sessions at 8 a.m. and sends its last group skyward at 3 p.m.

More than a century after it blossomed into a circus headquarters and hosted dozens of acts, including P.T. Barnum's legendary Greatest Show on Earth, the town of Delavan proudly exhibits its distinctive past. Big-top tributes can be seen at Tower Park, where statues of circus animals such as a giraffe and an elephant savor their amnesty from mini-golf courses. Delavan's early days live on through Greek Revival architecture that dates back to the mid-1800s, including the Allyn Mansion and the Israel Stowell Temperance House, originally an alcohol-free safe haven that eventually served as a government meeting center.Delavan's quaint downtown district, lined with old-fashioned lampposts and brick-paved walkways, boasts an assortment of antique stores and small cafés. Throughout the rest of the town, well-manicured parks and 13 miles of forested shoreline along Delavan Lake create a scenic backdrop for horseback rides, hiking, water recreation, and composing haikus on the ground with leaves.
Situated inside the historic Power & Light building, the Geneva Lake Museum replicates Lake Geneva's Main Street from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Inside the museum, visitors stroll around admiring the turn-of-the-century Georgian and Italianate architecture that forms historic stores, a school room, and a 1920s dental workstation, among other spaces. Guests may walk into the rooms themselves and closely examine old-fashioned farm implements, a telephone switchboard, or Potawatami tools and arrowheads. Beyond Main Street, museum visitors can study up on Frank Lloyd Wright's Hotel Geneva or the Chicago & North Western Railway. Sightseers can also explore Lake Geneva, the city's namesake and a 7.6-mile body of water that empties into the White River. The lake is surrounded by a 23-mile public path, which makes the area attractive to Midwesterners who want to take a scenic day trip or ducks that want to train for a marathon.
