A Trader Joes (preferably in the empty store front by taco bell!)

A dog park. Hillmoor is such a waste of space, why not make it a large dog friendly park.

Live theater venue with a classic-children's free film matinee on Sunday afternoons. A real soda fountain inside a throwback burger joint. A pancake and wafffle house. A German restaurant with oompah bands on weekends and polka dancing. Slow cooked and rubbed BBQ rib and soul food hole-in-the wall with food served on paper plates. An all night private wine or whiskey and cigar club. A parasailing service. A go-cart track. A large sailing yacht for with excursions like Elmer Zingle used to offer. A children's indoor/outdoor adventure and discovery playland area with a pizzeria and gourmet hotdog stand attached. A twisted tour of haunted locations, murder spots, burial grounds and werewolf sighting tour with stops at orchards and wineries. An officially sanctioned, Wisconsin tavern owner's association pub crawl on winter weekends (when things are dead), with hotel lodging within walking distance, and live bands at each bar's rest stop. Restarting the original Miss Lake Geneva beauty pageant to compete in the Wisconsin national finals. A chili, cheese, BBQ or beer contest and annual awards festival (pick one), with national ties (like ice sculpting, but in the summer sun)... I could go on, but who's going to read all of this anyway?

Besides parking, local plays, comedy clubs, bypass for those driving east-west towards Williams Bay, trains, and other transit systems to alleviate congestion downtown. Parking garage (see Burlington)!

An indoor play area for kids. Winters are long and there is nothing for kids to do. Examples: monkey joes, helium jump parks, fast food play lands, chuck e cheese, kid museum etc

A fully loaded public park area with covered picnic tables, an outdoor amphitheater, bike/walking path, dog park, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, and a playground. (Perhaps even an inground swimming pool) Where? The old Hillmoor property would make a perfect place for something like that!

To be completely honest, I wish that the town of Lake Geneva had a better local cinema... the Showboat is rather crappy, considering the fact that I have not attended a movie there in well over a year. From following awards seasons, why is it that the Showboat (which hopefully can be bought out and improved) cannot screen INTERESTING and GOOD movies such as "12 Years A Slave", "Dallas Buyers Club", "Blue Jasmine", "The Wolf of Wall Street", "Captain Phillips", "Nebraska", "Before Midnight", "August: Osage County" "Her", etc. etc. among countless others over the years! Genuinely, it sucks that in order to catch and support one of these flicks, residents of Lake Geneva (and other nearby towns too, as the movie theater in Burlington is no improvement, and the only other cinema in Walworth County is all the way up in Whitewater) must drive at least 45 or so minutes to suburbs of Milwaukee or Chicago in order to view such critically acclaimed films before they are released months later onto DVD (for example, take note on the cinemas in Round Lake, IL and Crystal Lake, IL). Thus, in conclusion, I simply and sincerely wish that Lake Geneva and Walworth County as a whole were the possessors of an awesome movie theater that screened equally wonderful, interesting, and award-nominated films.

A nice family restaurant that will not charge you thru the roof. A good chain restaurant like an Olive Garden. A Buffalo Wild Wings would be nice to go have a beer and watch a game rather than all the dive bars downtown. A bookstore like a Barnes & Noble would be very good to.
