Float back in time to the days of gangsters on beautiful Lake Como! It's no secret that during the days of Prohibition from 1920 to 1933 that Chicago mobsters were frequent visitors to points all over Wisconsin, including little Lake Como, just west of Lake Geneva. Old locals still remember the gangs riding through downtown Lake Geneva with their tommy guns is plain sight as their black Cadillacs made their way to local spots like Lake Como where they and their molls could hang out relatively undisturbed. Friendly forces ran places such as the Lake Como Hotel, now known as The French Country Inn. Gangsters Bugs Moran, Baby Face Nelson and members of the John Dillinger gang were regulars at the Como Hotel and were hosted by legendary Hobart Hermansen, who was known as the Slot Machine King of Walworth County! Walk the grounds of the old hotel, step inside and hear the stories of when the bad guys were just regular guys while they were unwinding in the area. Lunch will be lakeside at Mar's Resort, featuring their incredible burgers, brats, Rueben and Chicken Sandwiches, Chef's and Caesar Salads and more! The boat cruise will be on Marís Resort 50-foot pontoon boat that will take us to see and visit the hotel along with other known gangster spots and stops on the lake! Trip includes transportation by Park District Bus, tour guide, lunch and boat ride. Moderate walking and stairs. Choose between 2 dates below.
