Interesting places to visit near Geneva

I am thinking about taking my kids to a day trip to interesting sites around Geneva, France included. What would you suggest?

Yvoire - FR, specially if you can get the "Belle Epoque" boat from Nyon to Yvoire. I've taken it a few times and I am always fascinated by the beauty of its steam engine.

Fil En Vol for some active fun for kids of more or less any age and adults too. It's just round the back of the Salève. Remember to wear long trousers and long-sleeved T-shirt.

Re: Interesting places to visit near Geneva

How far from Geneva do you want to go?

The underground mills at Le Locle

Also there is the grotto and Iron and Railway Museum at Vallorbe

It is fab. Every time I take it I glue myself to the engine window.
