Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

Entertainment in Geneva is diverse and the options can seem limitless. For example, the Japanese Tea Garden is extremely popular for weddings, proms, photoshoots, and other special events. Designed in 1910 by Japanese landscape architect Taro Otsuka, the gardens provide a serene place for residents to experience nature and learn about the philosophy of Japanese gardening. 

The Fabyan Villa Museum was a home owned by Colonel George and Nelle Fabyan from 1905 to 1939 and is famous for the remodel done in 1907 by world-famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The large estate is now a preserved piece of history and is open for visits from the public. 

For a real taste of hometown pride, an afternoon or evening is best spent cheering for the Kane County Cougars baseball team.
