Lock and Dam #8 (and the adjacent Dairyland Power) dominates the landscape just south of the village. Residents and visitors alike enjoy watching river traffic in spring, summer and fall. River boats locking through include massive barges that move cargo from St. Paul to New Orleans, fishing enthusiasts, and pleasure boaters. River traffic also includes enormous flocks of migrating water birds in spring and fall. Four miles south of Genoa on Hwy. 35 lies the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Fish Hatchery. The Clements Fishing Barge attracts fishermen and women and kids of all ages to their floating "dock;" fishing pole rentals are available too.


History buffs far and wide have enjoyed many memorable visits to Old Tool Shed Antiques on 612 Main Street, 608-689-2066, to view the extensive collection of historic farming and homesteading tools and implements of all kinds.


A block north on Water Street is Cory Smith Studios, known as one of the midwest's finest jewelers, creating award-winning cast gold and platinum pieces with custom gem faceting, 608-689-2577.


Main Street also brings you to the Big River Inn Hotel, Lodging where every room is a suite, and featuring all the comforts of the big hotels, a fish-cleaning house, outdoor boat hookups, and other amenities geared to outdoor enthusiasts, and rates are easy on your pocket book. Next to this is the Big River Inn Restaurant, where you'll find delicious American and Mississippi River entrees. The restaurant is connected just east of The Big River Inn Hotel. Just a short walk south and east is Rudy's Bar and Grill, known for its GREAT burgers and fun. Just west of this also is the Historic Genoa Motel


Stop for gas at Pedretti's Quik Stop, and then take a drive 1 mile north to the Old Settlers Scenic Overlook and bring your camera and a picnic lunch. All trails are paved. The access road is currently out of service due to the Spring rains of 2008; But you can still walk up to a GREAT view.
