I am a Chicago native, and for most Chicago folks we look forward to Spring and, of course, summertime CHI! However, stepping away from the hustle and bustle of the city is a great way to decompress and reconnect with nature!
I recently took a weekend trip with some girlfriends and drove up to Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. It was a quick 2 hour drive from the city! Lucky for us, one of my girlfriends has a house right on the water. Having a place that felt like home made our trip just a little bit better. We started our mornings with a healthy breakfast and ended our days with girl talk on the couch filled with lots of laughter!
Lake Geneva has a quaint downtown with boats, restaurants, and even a small beach! We set out to see Lake Geneva and try some of their yummy eats. While I didn’t love our dining experiences there, the feel of this small city is just what the doctor ordered.
The Grand Geneva Spa
One thing we knew for sure was that we were going to top off our weekend with some time at the spa. In doing some research, we realized that the spa at the grand Geneva hotel is rated the best in Lake Geneva. Of course we couldn’t leave without checking it out! Each one of us received different services ranging from seasonal farmhouse massages, to deep tissue services. We were greeted with a friendly face, and shown the amenities of the spa. The spa offers a whirl pool, sauna, steam room, and place to get your nails done! Since there were seven of us, we were given the Tranquil Lounge to sip on champagne and nosh on small bites while we waited. I did the deep tissue with Diana, I have to say she has fingers of magic! I would highly recommend requesting her if deep tissue is what you are into. The Grand Geneva certainly did not disappoint, we spent a little bit of time before and after our services just enjoying the amenities.
Thank you Lake Geneva for creating a lifetime of memories for my friends and I. Also, thank you Grand Geneva for giving us the rest and relaxation we needed to end our weekend filled with laughter and love!
