There is something magical about winter in Wisconsin, and Lake Geneva is where it’s at this season. The holiday fun in Lake Geneva is just beginning, so pack up the kids and plan a weekend, or even a day trip to enjoy the festivities. Below are just a sampling of the things that the city of Lake Geneva offers, and you can find even more at www.visitlakegeneva.com.
Lake Geneva Cruise Line Santa Cruise – I shared all about the Lake Geneva Cruise Line in this feature on a relaxing girls getaway in Lake Geneva, but they’re still going strong this holiday season with the Santa Cruise. Your family will enjoy a quick ride around the lake to Santa’s North Pole hideaway in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, inside of a heated boat. Children will enjoy hearing the live Christmas narration, as they look out the windows to see fun and exciting light displays.
