Overview
More
Locally owned and operated, The Little Traveler is a Geneva Landmark. A SIMPLE IDEA THAT EVOLVED INTO A ONE-OF-A-KIND EXPERIENCE Downtown Geneva is still known as one of the most unique shopping districts in the Midwest, maintaining a tradition of hospitality, charm, and character. This area is now one of the prettiest streets in Geneva. The Little Traveler has remained the cornerstone of this tradition. The shop has grown considerably since the original Italianate Victorian residence (which now serves as the center section of the shop) to thirty-six rooms of treasures. You’ll be greeted by a caring staff and amazed by the never-ending array of items brought back by our modern day little travelers.

The Little Traveler is a very unique shopping experience. Rooms and rooms filled with little trinkets, clothing and even Christmas decorations. You can even eat in their little cafe!

We stopped here for lunch. 2 of us had the sandwich sampler. The other 2 of us had salads. Good value for the price. Good tasting items. Definitely worth stopping at.

The Little Traveler is my "go to" place for gift shopping. So many great choices, wide variety, a range of price points and always a bulls-eye for those "hard to buy for" people. Also the BEST place to pick up hostess gifts. And it's an...More
