U.S. Mailboat Cruise & Pier 290


Community Education Travel -
CET 2022

In the beautiful resort town of Lake Geneva, WI, once known as the “Newport of the West,” a unique experience awaits as we board The Walworth, a genuine United States Mailboat. As we cruise on scenic Geneva Lake you will experience one of the only places left in the country where mail is still delivered by boat. With over 105 years of mail service, Geneva Lakes Cruise line still delivers mail to about 75 Lake Geneva homes on a daily basis during the summer months. From either the main enclosed deck or the open-air second deck see the agile mail carriers leap from the boat to each pier along the lake and then back again to the mailboat while the boat never stops! You will also hear historical narration about the spectacular estates, mansions and natural scenery that line the shores of this beautiful lake. After the cruise, we’ll reboard our motorcoach and drive to Williams Bay for lunch at Pier 290, Lake Geneva's only lakeside restaurant. Pier 290 is designed to capture lake views from nearly every vantage point in the dining room. The decor includes many antique nautical pieces and fixtures from the Lake Geneva region. The restaurant features some of the region’s best cuisine and is housed in the former historic Gage Marine facility.
