How to Plan a Guys’ Getaway to Lake Geneva

Whether you’re planning the ultimate bachelor party, a golf trip, or you just want a weekend away with the boys, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin is the perfect destination for your next guys’ getaway. With so much to do in the Lake Geneva area, you’ll find something the whole group will love. Here are our top 10 recommendations for planning an unforgettable getaway. 

  1. Golf

Some of the best golf in Wisconsin is found right here in Lake Geneva. With over ten courses in the area, you’ll find the perfect place to play, no matter your skill level. At Grand Geneva, you'll find that our two 18-hole golf courses, The Brute, rated one of the best in the Midwest, and The Highlands, a Scottish Links style course, are as challenging as they are beautiful. 

  1. Visit Downtown Lake Geneva

Grab the guys and head to downtown Lake Geneva. Take in the beautiful views of the lake while exploring the area’s local restaurants, bars, shops, and more! 

  1. Visit a local Brewery or Winery 

When in Wisconsin, drink as the Wisconsinites do. Before dinner or a night out on the town, celebrate your vacation with a drink at a local Brewery or Winery. Whether you prefer hops or grapes, you can experience the taste of Wisconsin through locally-made beer and wine.

  1. Cigars & Bourbon at Links Patio

It’s time to unwind. After a day of bonding with the boys, take a seat by the fire and unwind with the perfect pairing of small-batch bourbon and a selection of premium cigars. Pro Tip: Ask about our special-edition Knob Creek Bourbon, bottled specifically for Grand Geneva. Try it before it’s gone.

  1. Pickleball Tournament

Did you know that pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America? Add some competition to your getaway and challenge the guys to a round-robin pickleball tournament. At Grand Geneva, our Fitness Center has several indoor and outdoor pickleball courts to choose from.

  1. Recover at the Spa

After a day of golfing or playing pickleball, allow your body to relax, recover, and refuel at the spa. Our WELL Spa offers several services specifically for men. From Sports Massages to Men’s Detoxifying and De-stressing Facials, you’ll be fresh and ready for the party to continue.

  1. Lake Activities

Soak up the sun out on the beautiful water of Geneva Lake. Rent a boat, grab a cooler and explore the lake. If you’re looking for extra excitement, incorporate paddleboarding, tubing or wake surfing into your lake day. For a unique sight-seeing experience, hop aboard one of Lake Geneva Cruise Line’s boats. Choose between a variety of tours that will provide you with beautiful views of the shoreline estates, as well as a look into the unique history of Geneva Lake. 

  1. Scooter Tour

The lake is just the beginning when it comes to scenic activities in Lake Geneva. Go off-shore and take a scooter for a leisure stroll through the best country scenery around. Circle Geneva Lake on some of the most fun, winding, hilly, woodsy roads on your own, or join a guided tour with several pit stops along the way. 

  1. The Adventure Center

What’s a guys’ trip without a little adventure? Bring the boys to the hub of all warm-weather activities, from hiking, biking and archery to team sports including sand volleyball and disc golf.

  1. Trolley Tour Bar Crawl 

This will surely be one of the most unique, memorable, and exclusive experiences of your getaway. Travel in style and roll up to Downtown Lake Geneva in the famous Grand Geneva Trolley. The tour stops at four different bars and ends with a delicious meal at Tuscan Tavern. After arriving back at Grand Geneva, let the fun continue and party the night away at Evolve Night Club. 

No matter the occasion, a guys’ getaway is always a great way to spend time with your buddies. Regardless of the size or interests of your group, Lake Geneva has everything you need to plan a vacation you’ll never forget.
