Your Geneva-on-the-Lake Winter Vacation Itinerary
Stay Active with Classic Winter Weather Activities
Winter doesn’t mean that you need to hibernate! Although snuggling up on the couch may sound tempting, you won’t want to miss out on all the fun winter activities that Geneva-on-the-Lake and the neighboring towns offer. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snow biking at Geneva State Park are a few winter sports that we love; they are only available once a year, so get out and enjoy them while you can!
Experience a Winter Winery Tour
One of our favorite ways to enjoy every season is with wine tasting and tours in Ohio’s wine region. Yet, winter offers a quieter perspective. Many of the wineries in Geneva and the surrounding area offer tastings, tours, live music, and entertainment throughout the year. When you visit any of Northeast Ohio’s beloved wineries, we guarantee that you will discover a blend you’ll want to sip all-season-long!
Celebrate the Season
Geneva-on-the-Lake and the neighboring towns host many events throughout the winter. From Lights on the Lake in December to the Bissell Maple Farm Maple Madness Tour in March, there are plenty of reasons to smile when you attend any of the area’s fun winter events!

Let’s face it: winter often leaves our skin feeling dry, and the holidays can sometimes make our bodies feel tense.
