Geneva is a unique community. There is a counterculture vibe to it and in the last decade, there has been a concerted effort to embrace local culture and become a foodie city. The city's tourism has also expanded and the city has reclaimed much of the lakefront, making a stroll along the lake for several miles quite enjoyable. Geneva is diverse, with many races, cultures, and languages present throughout the city. Geneva is a microcosm of a large city, and there is no place quite like it!

I feel as though Geneva has so much more to offer if we put in the time in effort. The crime is semi high and needs to diminish for the sake of the family’s of this community. We also feel as though we don’t put in the effort to make this place more beautiful and not just a little part but the whole city. Let’s first start by contributing to the environment. We should place plants and more trees. Lets have recycling be a priority, we need to make it easier on families to recycle and tell people the importance of recycling and this is the first easy step we can make by contributing to not only this community but as individuals. If we make a small impact in this city of Geneva ny. I truly feel like we can make a difference in the next town or even the next state. Let’s get to work because we have so much to do.
So many things to do, from the Lake to the wineries and many local shops and restaurants. The Lake(Seneca) has many open air style eateries and wineries that serve delicious food, with craft beer and wineries on both sides of the lake. One can rent a boat at the many marinas and take to the water. Many lakeside places have docking for boats.
Spring, summer, fall and winter there's always something to do. You are centralized to both Rochester or Syracuse and within 45 mins to an hour ride for more options.
Nature abounds, small town feel and many views to enjoy.
