After the glacial period, the southern half of Walworth County was left with moraines of rolling hills, and several picturesque lake settings. The tour starts in a village known for its chocolate shops, next to the shore of Wisconsin’s second-deepest lake, then heads north to a lake community developed to sell newspapers. You then cut west across an old moonshine-runners’ route and pass through a village that the circus once used as its winter pasture grounds. Now circling to the northeast, visit a city that was named for a set of elk horns found in a tree. You then travel along a road where werewolves have been sighted. Soon the ramble crosses into Racine County and visits a city dubbed “Chocolate City U.S.A.” With an essence of chocolate still on your breath, pivot southwest on Spring Valley Road, back to Lake Geneva.
