Lake Geneva is a wonderful city, full of great food, people, culture, and wonderful activities. The area also is also home to a unique mail delivery system. For almost the last 100 summers, teens and college students have been hopping onto piers, hustling to mailboxes and sprinting back to a moving boat to deliver the mail to surrounding mansions. All without falling into the lake. It’s a remarkable sight to see. A typical run makes over 60 deliveries.

If you get a chance to make it up to the area this summer, make sure to see these guys in action. Boats run each morning, now through mid-September.
