For many years, I’ve been vacationing in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. And even though my visits have been frequent, I can almost always find something new and exciting to do in this beautiful Midwestern lakeside town. From hot air balloon rides and boat trips to horseback riding and shopping excursions, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin boasts an abundance of fun-filled activities for the whole family to enjoy. Here are a few of my favorites:
For an exhilarating escapade, venture out to Aerial Adventures where you can ride zip lines through the air, climb mammoth towers and even walk an elevated balance beam platform. Aerial Adventures will also host and customize birthday events, bachelor and bachelorette parties and family reunions. A full package of climbing, zipping and more is priced at $60.00 while zip lining costs just $40 per person. For more information, photos, rates and testimonials, log onto www.aerialadventureslg.com.
