Sweet Spots (Part 1): Valentine's Day in Geneva
Our town plays host to a number of exciting and affordable Valentine's Day options. In this two-part series, Patch takes a look at specials around town.
Geneva is an inherently romantic town. A river runs through down the middle of it, the architecture is quaint and beautiful, and there are plenty of wineries around. Even without the vino, though, it isn't hard to wax romantic here, as the enthusiastic approach to Valentine's Day taken by local restaurants shows.
We have a breakdown of the best that Geneva has to offer on this lover's holiday. Spots fill up fast, so don't hesitate call in some reservations. As the poet advises, young lovers: make much of time.
