|In Lake Geneva, Wi|
We're on a road trip for a few days. Not to some exotic location, we're just following my husband along on his business trip to Wisconsin. While he's in meetings and conferences we explore our surroundings. Even though I have a knack for getting lost, I plug in my GPS, grab a map from the hotel, and search for new people and places.
Yesterday we explored the little town of Lake Geneva. Back in the late 1800s the town grew as a vacation spot for wealthy Chicagoans, where they could get away from the city to hunt and fish Today it is a cute little lake front town with shops, restaurants, and a public beach. We found two lovely little restaurants: "Simple" which served delicious fresh sandwiches with local ingredients and "Sopra" a bistro serving a yummy assortment of pastas and seafood.
The crystal clear lake is 7 miles long and 2 miles across and is dotted with mansions dating back to the early 1800s. The Wrigleys and many other wealthy families still own properties there. We took an hour boat tour of the lake which highlights some of the most spectacular homes.
