Geneva is a very reasonable drive to a number of beautiful towns and cities along Lake Geneva (Lake Léman)NyonMorges and of course Lausanne. You can go north to Canton of Neuchâtel, stopping (I highly recommend) at the underappreciated Yverdon-les-Bains along the way. Geneva sits right on the French border, in case you're inclined to wander into France. Évian-les-Bains is a short drive.

A couple of additional things to know about Switzerland:

  1. It's a very cash-focused society. It is customary to pay for many things in cash -- this can come as an embarrassing surprise to non-Swiss visitors who are used to paying for everything with credit cards.
  2. Many places are closed on Sundays -- stores, especially.

Annecy! Beautiful French Medieval City that is usually coined the venice of France, due to it's canals. It's also situated on a beautiful lake with the Alps in the background. It's only 30mins by car and is also reachable by bus for 30CHF round trip!

Do a bit of research on Lausanne, Bern, Lucerne, Dijon, Lyon and Grenoble.  Lyon is famous for food, especially Cassoulet.  I lived in Dijon for a few months, and thought it was fabulous.  It's full of traditional Burgundian food, wine, mustard and architecture.  Lucerne is delightful.  Set on a beautiful mountain lake, and has pedestrian bridge that has scenes from its history painted on it.
