Sassy Cow Creamery

Reviewed By David W - McFarland, Wisconsin

You can't beat Sassy Cow ice cream, best in WI and maybe best anywhere. Our tour included three bus loads of people with several guests in wheelchairs. This tour is not designed for the close to 50 people that began on a second floor with no elevator. Our one tour guide tried hard to handle this huge group but it made it tough on her. We got a chance to see the milk cows and the "merry go round" milking process. The timing of our tour was perfect to hit the 4:00 milking. Had a chance to sample some chocolate milk and tour guide did tell us a little about the process but with this size group it did not make her job easy. Did not get a chance to see anything happening in the ice cream process but did enjoy the ice cream that we purchased, some now and some cartons to take home. Nice visit.

Columbus Antique Mall

Reviewed By SMC48 - Chicago, Illinois

We visited the antique mall and small Columbus museum featuring items from the 1893 World's Fair. It is an enjoyable walk thru the mall with a separate section for the museum. The museum has gotten smaller as I'm assuming some of the artifacts were sold. There is something for everyone to see.
There is also a small vending area with snacks for sale. It is on the honor system for paying. What a refreshing idea!

I would recommend this place. The team was professional yet fun. They took the time to explain the process and shared their personal experiences. They made the waiting time pass by.

Badger Motor Car Company

Reviewed By Sandy O - Sauk City, Wisconsin, United States

Stopped here on a recommendation from a friend. You walk up a few steps to the entrance, open the door, and step back in time. There are three floors of things you might not discover in other places. Items related to automobiles, motorcycles, beer, pop(that is soda to those not from Wisconsin) bicycles, and more. A small bar area with a few stools and several tall top tables to sit and enjoy drinks. There are also several seating areas with vintage furniture near a large screen tv that plays music videos.
The owner is quite hospitable and told us to visit all areas of the building. He buys items he enjoys, so doesn't sell the items on display. He is also planning a downstairs bar and a beer garden for the summer months.
Note the stairs of the old building when you travel up and down. You will notice the wear pattern from many years of use.
The establishment is only open on Fridays and Saturdays at this time, with music on a lot of Saturday nights.
I am not aware of any handicapped accessibility, so this could be a drawback for some visitors.
I also did not see a donation box, which I would have gladly added too....this place is wonderful for relaxing and taking a look back.
