Lake Geneva is a small resort city in Walworth County, Wisconsin. It sits in the southern part of the state and draws vacationers from surrounding areas such as Milwaukee and Chicago. The city is on Geneva Lake and was named after the town of Geneva in New York. What is now known as the Grand Geneva Resort was once the first Playboy resort, built by the late Hugh Hefner. Its population is nearly 8,000 residents, although the city draws a number of visitors during peak travel season.
One of the area's top attractions is Big Foot Beach State Park, which sits on the lake and offers swimming and kayaking for visitors, along with hiking trails to explore. During the winter, hit the slopes at Wilmot Mountain, an old-school ski resort with a casual lodge serving drinks and snacks. Visitors to Lake Geneva can enjoy adventure parks, zip lining, biking trails, golf courses, horseback riding, snowmobiling, boat cruises, fishing, parasailing and more.
