The Lake Geneva area is one of Wisconsin’s most popular tourist destinations with a wealth of attractions. From historic to one-of-a-kind, Lake Geneva has plenty of reasons to visit—and plenty more reasons to come back.


Geneva Lake Cruises

Join the 130-year-old tradition of touring Wisconsin's second largest (and second deepest) lake. Sail aboard Lake Geneva Cruise Line's historic reproductions reminiscent of the steamboats that once traveled this very lake. Take a luncheon cruise or the famous Mail Boat Tour, the only mail delivery of its type in the country. Seasonally, for over 130 years, it has departed each morning with an adventurous Mailperson who leaps off the boat onto residents' piers, deposits mail and grabs outgoing mail, and jumps back aboard. The only catch is, the boat never stops!


Watson Wild West Museum

Ten minutes from Lake Geneva, you can visit the Wild West -- in the Midwest. Visit the general store packed with cowboy memorabilia, drink an ice cold sarsaparilla (root beer) in the saloon, and even pan for gold at this unique General Store. Open from May through October.

A short drive from Lake Geneva, you can ride a historic trolley along Wisconsin's last original electric railroad line. Dining trips, a gift shop and exhibits are also available. Open seasonally from May to October.
