Things to do in Lake Geneva, WI

Lake Geneva is known as a “resort town” in Southeastern Wisconsin. The lake in the middle of town is surrounded by beautiful hotels, golf courses, and plenty of shopping, bars, and restaurants. If you are looking for a beautiful area to spend a relaxing weekend, Lake Geneva is a good pick. Check out the details below for things to do in Lake Geneva, WI.


There are a lot of options when it comes to spending the night in Lake Geneva and I stayed at The Abbey Resort. Waking up in the morning and being able to sit outside and drink coffee right on the water was PERFECTION. There are three places to eat inside of the resort – Waterfront Grille, 240 degrees West, and Cafe Latte if you’re looking for a quick morning snack. I was impressed with their Spa and Fitness Center, the cleanliness of the resort, and the wonderful hotel staff. If you are a golfer, The Abbey Resort was made for you.


We all know by know that most of what I do on these trips is eat and drink. I stopped at several restaurants in Lake Geneva and my favorite was Flat Iron Tap. It’s a very small spot and doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the food and service was fantastic.

I ordered deep fried cheese curds, brussel sprouts, and the pollo fresco chicken sandwich from Flat Iron Tap. I couldn’t decide what to get... so I got it all. They do not have a liquor license, but can serve wine or beer with your meal! They created an awesome selection of cocktails with the wine they have on hand and have over 100 beers to choose from.

Another restaurant in Lake Geneva that I enjoyed was brand new at the time – Guac Star. They have a CHEESE CURD TACO! Guac Star is located right in downtown Lake Geneva. The vibe inside of the restaurant is very fun and they have several different tequila drinks to try. It’s a good spot to stop for a little snack or a quick lunch while you’re out exploring the area.

One of the best coffee shops in Lake Geneva was recommended to me by a friend and it is called Inspired Coffee. In addition to coffee, they serve a variety of yummy baked goods. The mission behind Inspired Coffee is what makes them so special. Inspired Coffee employs individuals with disabilities to help train, coach, and help them become integrated into a full work setting. Everyone there was so nice and the coffee was wonderful.


I did not do too much shopping in Lake Geneva, but trust me when I say there is PLENTY. Your girl is on a budget though, ya know? I did stop by Hill Valley Dairy to grab some cheese.

Hill Valley Dairy recently opened their store front and I wanted to check it out. Although not very large, they have tons of options of different cheeses and Wisconsin-themed gifts if you’re looking for something to bring home. I purchased the Whiskey Gouda cheese and it was fantastic. They have a "cheese bar" next door where you can sip wine and taste-test different cheeses.
