Top Things to Do in Lake Geneva this Spring
13 Apr, 2018
As soon as Mother Nature gets the memo that it’s spring showers, not snow, Lake Geneva sprouts alive with a bounty of events and activities. Here’s the top experiences locals and visitors alike enjoy this season:
Wind down the White River Trail to reconnect with nature while the trees bud, flowers bloom and birds chirp. You won’t even need binoculars to spot local wildlife during your adventure. Deer, squirrels, turtles and turkeys trek through the brush around the riverbank and you’re bound to run into them. In May, The Adventure Center opens a whole new realm of hiking, mountain biking and other activities, including archery, volleyball and elevated disc golf course.
Lake Geneva is home to Wisconsin’s best golf courses. Get back into the swing of things this spring and score affordable early season rates at Grand Geneva. The Brute and The Highlands are a true test of championship golf. And we’ve got a revolutionary new way to play with GolfBoard. It’s like a segway meets surfboard but for the fairway. Surf the earth this April and May for a limited time!
Get ready for sandal season with a Deborah Lippmann pedicure – the celebrity nail polish line you may have seen on the red carpet. While you’re at WELL Spa + Salon, make a day of it and shoot some hoops in the fitness center, join a yoga class or give pickleball a try – we have both indoor and outdoor courts. The locker rooms have steam, sauna and whirlpool amenities all guests are welcome to use.
As the season changes, so does the menu. Grand Geneva’s restaurants feature locally sourced ingredients so it’s natural for a few menu updates to occur as more options become available in spring. Starting in May, Geneva ChopHouse serves up pickled fiddlehead ferns, strawberries, box toy squash and carrots besides iconic steaks and seafood the restaurant is known for. Don’t forget to make reservations for Mother’s Day Brunch, a true treat at the resort.
Wine lovers rejoice! Lake Geneva’s 3rd annual Festival of Wine was moved to later date this spring so everyone can enjoy better weather during this fun weekend. Stay at Grand Geneva May 4 through 6 and enjoy spectacular dinners, hear from wine influencers at engaging seminars and don’t miss the Grand Tasting. With over 100 wines to taste, you’re sure to find your new favorite before summer sipping begins. Tickets for sale online.
While Lake Geneva is a year-round destination, spring is definitely a highlight when the beaches aren’t yet crowded and the shops are stocked with all the specialty trinkets visitors love. Take advantage of lower rates, especially during the week, and check out our package offers where you can stay and golf free, rest and relax or snack on cheese curds while enjoying a New Glarus Beer, sold only in Wisconsin. If your travel is flexible, our Grand Geneva deal dates start at $109, making spring travel affordable for anyone who wants a taste of luxury.
Whether you choose to do one or all of these things, we look forward to seeing you at Grand Geneva this spring!
