About Lake GenevaNicknamed the “Newport of the West,” Lake Geneva has been a resort community since just after the Civil War when wealthy Chicago families discovered the site and began building summer homes here. Today the elegant, often historic estates still ring the lake and can best be viewed by tour boat or via the 21-mile Geneva Lake Shore Path.
The area boasts golf courses designed by such icons as Lee Trevino, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye. In winter Lake Geneva is host to legions of downhill skiers, cross-country skiers, ice skaters and snowmobilers. Big Foot Beach State Park is 2.5 miles south of Lake Geneva at 1452 S. Wells St..
