Genoa City, Wisconsin is a city in which the American CBS Daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless is set. The real village of the same name it is unlike and unrelated to the city depicted in the series.

The city is located in Wisconsin in the United States.[1] Genoa City is recognized as a global city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts and international trade. Within the city boundaries are many office buildings, a major international airport and a top hospital. Genoa City also happens to be home to many large companies including large conglomerates.

Businesses[edit]

Tourism[edit]

Genoa City also boasts four-star hotels such as the Genoa City Hotel and the Genoa City Athletic Club which is a hotel/athletic club/restaurant. Near the Athletic Club you will find the most popular coffee shop in town, Crimson Lights. Genoa City is also home to Gloworm, a bar & restaurant owned and operated by Gloria and Jeff Bardwell. Genoa City is becoming more popular for tourism. Local attractions include a large lake where activities such as ice fishing, swimming, and other water sports are enjoyed. On the outskirts of the city, visitors can rent cabins for quiet getaways. Although winters are harsh, many residents utilize the lakes and cabins for spending time with family and friends. Ironically, the fictional town uses Lake Racine as a mid- to large-sized lake in the area, while Racine is near Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. Throughout the city you can find many homes including Condominiums, basic houses, farms and lush estates. Two prominent estates are the Abbott Mansion, where the founder of Jabot Cosmetics John Abbott lived and the Chancellor Estate, home of Katherine Chancellor and Jill Abbott Fenmore. The other major residence to note is that of the Newman Ranch, home to Genoa City's most prominent citizen, Victor Newman and his family. Both the Chancellor Estate and the Newman Ranch include stables and horses and plenty of pastures for riding.

Education[edit]

Public schools include Genoa City Elementary and Genoa City High School. Walnut Grove Academy[7] is a private school that many of the children of the most prominent families of the city attend. College students may attend the local college, Genoa City University (also known as GCU).
