The Tri-Cities offers many shopping options, but Third Street in Geneva is a favorite in our area. There are so many quaint shops, delicious dining options and sweet treats, making it a great place to spend an afternoon or evening.
There is truly something for everyone on Third Street. Whether you are youthful in age or in heart, you will enjoy all that this little street has to offer. Some of my favorites include Odalisque Beauty Apothecary for makeup with clean ingredients and personalized service; Flair on 3rd, where I tend to go for gifts but always find something for myself; and The Little Traveler, which has many rooms throughout the store all offering different merchandise – it's really a destination for all that visit Geneva.
Whether you are making a day of it on Third Street or are looking to explore other amazing shops in the Tri Cities, the shopping guide is comprised of the local favorites.
Named for their sweet Bernese Mountain dog, Harvey, you will enter a welcoming environment that encourages the community to learn, explore, escape and relax through books and other fun diversions. Enjoy a coffee or tea from their in-store cafe!
