Lake Geneva Ghost Walks...discover the haunted history of Lake Geneva walking tour around the beautiful downtown by Geneva Lake. Hear about the colorful characters, haunted mansions, vengeful spirits, monsters, and more! This group has spent a lot of time researching supernatural and weird stories around Lake Geneva that they guarantee you’ve never heard before. Each story on the tour can be traced to a story published in a newspaper or book, a local urban myth with some truth behind it, or a real experience from a personal interview conducted in their research. This is not a haunted house. No one will jump out and grab you during the walk. Their tours focus on the history first because the best ghost stories are real.
