Located about 80 miles northwest of Chicago, this town on the bank of Geneva Lake became a popular summer destination for wealthy residents of the Windy City, many of whom built lavish vacation homes on the lakeshore in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The best way for groups to get to know the historic and modern luxury of the area is by taking a sightseeing cruise on the lake. The cruises give passengers up-close views of the beautiful homes along the shore and relate stories about the wealthy families that built them. During the summertime, groups can cruise on one of the boats that deliver mail to the lakefront homes and watch as young mail carriers jump back and forth from the moving boat to the docks in front of each house to deliver the mail. WHILE YOU'RE THERE: Just a 45-minute drive from Lake Geneva is Fort Atkinson, best known as home to the Fireside Dinner Theatre. Billed as the state's most-visited group attraction, this theater features perfor- mances in the round by professional actors, plus delicious food, souvenir shops and more. M O R E I N F O | W W W .
