Geneva Reviews

All Categories
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!
Review Geneva
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.
If you've never heard or been to the town of Geneva, I suggest you put it on your next road trip list. Geneva is such a beautiful, loving, and friendly town. Everyone is kind and outgoing and what I love most is all the locally owned places. Their number one restaurant, Ports Cafe, is a must to visit, while taking in the scenery on a walk around the lake. If you're a wine lover, fear not for they have the best wines I have ever tasted, and you guessed it all local. Geneva is a town I'll come back to even once I've moved away, definitely can't forget all the beauty and love it has to offer.
