What a fantastic month September is! The weather is perfect: not too hot, not too cold and it’s time to start afresh with a new cycle of activities or pick up the ones we love again.
Whether you are looking for sports, arts, or social activities, the options vary vastly and information is scattered and sometimes difficult to find. For this reason, Living in Nyon will be providing you with our top 5 picks of the month with selected activities coming up in our region!
1. Lake Geneva cleanup – 3rd and 4th of October
