Brief Trip Report 5/22-25 Family Reunion

We flew direct from Atlanta on AirTran to Milwaukee, rented car and then drove less than an hour to our resort, Grand Geneva Resort. We were in the Holiday Inn Timeshare section.

The trip was great. All total we had about 25 people, ranging in age from 9 months to 83 years old. Most arrived Friday evening. On Saturday, we had a group lunch at Ginos East (allowed ordering from the menu and separate checks) and then took the ice cream social cruise. We made dinner back at the resort. Some went out on the town that night. Sunday, we travelled to Madison to see the 'grandfather' of the group and then back to town for dinner at Popeye's. We left early Monday morning.

The lake was absolutely beautiful. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to go back again, preferably in the summer when it's warmer. We had good weather though - w/ temps in the low 70s.

Glad you had a good time in Lake Geneva for the reunion. You lucked out with the weather. Two sunny days in the 70s in Wisconsin over Memorial Day weekend is almost unheard of...and I can say that because I spend most Memorial Days in Wisconsin! If you landed in Milwaukee, stayed in Lake Geneva and took a side trip to Madison, I'd say you saw a good bit of Wisconsin. It's a beautiful state to explore. Come back and visit soon again.
