Williams Bay

Williams Bay is where summer memories are made. Visit the lakeside town to find out for yourself.

Named after Captain Israel Williams, a captain in the War of 1812, Williams Bay became increasingly popular when rail service expanded into southern Wisconsin, and Chicagoans began frequenting the region during the summer. The area continues to be a thriving summertime destination.

Located in Walworth County, the idyllic village lies along the shores of scenic Geneva Lake. The Geneva Lake Shore Path is a great way to view Williams Bay’s natural beauty, and the local beach is ideal for swimming. Williams Bay residents and visitors can access Geneva Lake’s many aquatic opportunities, including boating, swimming, fishing, canoeing and beach-going

The community is also home to the University of Chicago Yerkes Observatory, which houses the largest refracting telescope in the world.

Local real estate includes condominium buildings, lakefront mansions that are rich in history, and new construction.

The Williams Bay School District serves the area, offering K-12 education.
