The village of Williams Bay is one of southeast Wisconsin’s most popular vacation and relocation hotspots. Located on the west shore of the beautiful Geneva Lake, Williams Bay possesses small town charm mingled with casual sophistication—a combination that attracts thousands of people to come relax and enjoy the village’s many amenities and the surrounding natural beauty of the area. From swimming Geneva Lake’s clear blue waters to snowmobiling the gently rolling hills offshore, residents and visitors can pick from an array of fun and exciting outdoor activities in Williams Bay all year round. The village boasts a well-kept lakeside park and beach—Edgewater Park—as well as a community recreation center and the 230-acre Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy, which offers over 4 miles of trails through woods, creeks, and wetlands. Williams Bay residents have access to the local George Williams Golf Course—one of the oldest public courses in Wisconsin—and they are also within minutes of the Abbey Springs Golf Course in Fontana-on-Geneva Lake or the Geneva National Golf Club on Lake Como.
Aside from its recreational opportunities and gorgeous Geneva Lake scenery, Williams Bay is also well-known as the home of the George Williams campus of Aurora University, located on the west side of town. This private, 4-year liberal arts institution is well-respected within the community, and contributes not only high quality education, but cultural enrichment as well. One of GWC’s most beloved events is the Music by the Lake summer concert series, which brings a variety of national performers to Williams Bay each year. The George Williams campus also sponsors 19 athletics teams called the Spartans—giving Williams Bay residents a chance to show their team spirit at home games throughout the season.
