Entires in this year's 2018 US Snow Sculpture competition left lots to be desired in our estimation. Many of them were either too abstract and unimpressive, or not nearly as detailed as we believed they would be, considering these are the top sculpture teams in all of the USA. Sorry we spent 3 hours travelling to see 14 sculptures which failed to be worth it. On an up note, all areas where we viewed sculptures were handicap accessible for my husband to use his electric scooter and the walkways were very clean and free of snow/ice so he could maneuver safely, which we were very impressed with.

If one has no other choice, then Riviera Beach is fine; however do not expect it to compare to other beaches in Florida, for example. It is just a small beach on the lake that become packed with people in the summer... and with the numbers of people and children unfortunately comes trash. It is not the cleanest beach. So, if you don't mind crowding, children, noise, etc., then you will be fine with this beach. Otherwise, stay by your hotel pool.

It's decent, the beach is clean and there are lifeguards. It's free after 5pm to get in (at which point I believe there are no longer lifeguards on duty, can't remember). If the weather is good it gets super overcrowded though.

This beach is free after labor day. it is a perfect beach for a lazy afternoon. Nice sand, no rocks, located next to the pier and all the restaurants and action for Lake Geneva. Loved it!

My in-laws met working at the Riv, grew up right in Lake Geneva, heard Duke Ellington play in the Ballroom and brought their kids here every year for vacation and to connect with family. Still come back every year.
Next generation (we) have brought our kids here and they are grown and we are still coming back to visit the Riv, which means the beach which has taken on changes like the iron fence and the pavillion and the shops in the Riviera and the boat rides.The mail boat is especially wonderful if you have time. The beach is clean and inviting and this time of year it's wonderful to sit on a bench in Library park and just watch, or read a book or sip a slushie and bring back old or make new memories...it never gets old. And the "new fountain" isn't so new anymore, but is still lovely.
