Lake Geneva is located in the southern part of the state of Wisconsin in the USA. This town with a population of approximately 7,100 inhabitants is a resort city located along a freshwater lake, Geneva Lake.
The first settlement was made here to harness electricity from the nearby waterfall. Availability of economical power led to a large number of sawmills and flour mills coming up in this region.
The building of railroads connected Lake Geneva to the bigger cities, and the first summer retreat was built here at the end of the nineteenth century. Eventually more such summer homes came up along the lake and started attracting visitors. Its popularity as a summer resort has earned the town the title of the ‘Hampton of the Midwest’.
Summers here are very pleasant with the average daytime temperature at 27.7°C. Winters are severe and temperatures are consistently below the freezing point; the average minimum temperature is –13°C.
