Lake Geneva, Wisconsin: Lakeside Mansions and Historical Museums
Located within 90 miles of Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison, Lake Geneva has become one of the Midwest’s most popular destinations for recreation. Geneva Lake—a gaping gulf of fresh water ripe for swimming, leisurely sails, water skiing, and tubing—is the resort town’s biggest draw in the summer. There's also plenty to do indoors. The Geneva Lake Museum takes visitors back in time with re-created late 19th- and early 20th-century shops, and the 1897-era Yerkes Observatory is home to the world's largest refracting telescope.
On mild days, you can admire the scenery by taking a stroll along the Geneva Lake Shore Path. This 21-mile walkway planned by early settlers stretches around the entire lake and offers views of historic sites and multimillion-dollar mansions, which helped the town earn the nickname “Newport of the West.”
