Getting lost here is something you’ll want to do, especially once you take in the gorgeous glacial landscape cross-stitched with lakes and counting forests and bluffs among its many charms. No stranger to quintessential white winters, Wisconsin’s natural assets can be enjoyed year round. Climb lighthouses for views of the Great Lakes. Hike to scenic bluffs and hidden waterfalls, or explore amazing sea caves. Take a scenic drive in autumn to see the stunning foliage.
Visit wineries, eat local, fresh-from-the-farm fare and stay in a cozy cabin. Or upgrade to a spa experience and a little fine art followed by world-class golfing. You can tour cheese factories, visit a motorcycle museum or walk a trail that dates to the Ice Age, so build some room into the itinerary for exploring Wisconsin’s contributions to culture and history.
You’ll find the National Historic Cheesemaking Center in Monroe County, which has been hosting its cheese festival since 1914.
