Summer in Lake Geneva has flown by and fall is quickly approaching. As the air gets crisp and the leaves start to change color, the new season brings new fall flavors and festivities to Grand Geneva. From craft cocktails and seasonal dishes to outdoor adventures and haunted hayrides, we have a wide array of new autumn offerings that you will fall in love with. 

Outdoor Activities & Adventures

The end of summer does not mean the end of outdoor fun and activities. Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year in Lake Geneva and we have several ways you can get outside and enjoy the fresh air and fall foliage.

Golf: The Brute and The Highlands only get more beautiful when the colors start to change. Play as many rounds as you can before the golf season is over. Every Tuesday in October, you can play a round on either course for only $65. 

Scooters & Ebikes: Hop on a scooter or ebike and cruise through some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. You’ll have the best views of the fall colors while circling Geneva Lake on some of the most fun, winding, hilly and woodsy roads.

Haunted Hayrides & Haunted Barn: Are you ready for spooky season? Head to Dan Patch Stables to take a hayride through haunted woods full of monsters and more. Scream with delight while walking through the Haunted Barn, then enjoy the evening sitting around a roaring bonfire.
