Think Wisconsin, not Switzerland.

You had better bring Fido if you would like to fit in to this picturesque resort town of Lake Geneva. Just 80 miles outside of Chicago, it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and your dog is as welcome as you are.
The 26-mile shore path is a wonderful way to experience the slower pace with Fido as it winds it’s way around Geneva Lake in front of beautiful historical homes. One can’t help but imagine these stately mansions and summer homes first built in the 1800’s when the Chicago fire led many families to rebuild their large homes here.
It would take up to a 10-hour day to walk the entire shore path and although doable, there is so much more to see and do during your time in Lake Geneva.
A kayak rental is a great way to get out on the water with Fido and blissfully oat amongst the sailboats, powerboats and wooden boats dotting the second deepest spring fed lake in Wisconsin.
