Thanksgiving has come and gone and it seems everyone at the lake is busy with holiday preparations. Last weekend was a good opportunity to take a trip to Northwind Perennial Farm north of Lake Geneva. Known for its variety of plants and helpful landscape experts during the warmer months, the centuries-old barn has been turned into a Christmas shop through December 13, where unique gifts and all types of greenery to decorate your home are available. One of our staff members and her family kicked off the holiday season with a visit with Santa, along with a pizza dinner and a showing of the movie The Polar Express at Gateway Technical College in Elkhorn. The winter landscape may be enveloping the lakes area, but that hasn’t stopped Lake Geneva Cruise Line tours. Last weekend the Walworth could be seen off shore near Library Park in Lake Geneva. The Cruise Line plans to run tours through December, weather permitting.
