When you think “adventure travel” you probably think of far-flung places like Belize and Alaska—not Wisconsin. But if you’re an outdoor adventurer, you’ll find plenty of places to explore in Wisconsin. A vacation in Wisconsin can put you close to the Kettle Moraine State Forest, which has excellent biking trails. Or choose Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands—kayakers will love exploring Lake Superior’s many caves and shipwrecks.
Packers fans don’t wear those cheese-wedge hats for nothing! Foodies will love tasting as many of Wisconsin’s artisanal cheeses as possible. Either drive from cheesemaker to cheesemaker, or choose a Wisconsin vacation in a town with a good farmers’ market—then the cheesemakers bring their wares to you. And what goes better with artisanal cheese than craft beer? In Milwaukee, visit the Lakefront and Sprecher Breweries for tours and tastings.
Wisconsin Dells is a classic family vacation destination. A vacation in Wisconsin Dells will put you close to all the excitement—you’ll have to tear the kids away from the theme parks, wave pools and water parks in Wisconsin Dells!
Lake Geneva boasts clean beaches, golf, and a small-town feel that definitely appeals to city dwellers—it’s a popular getaway for residents of Chicago.

All tours also include a visit to The Lily Pad, our gift shop.
Absolutely great tour, very good docents, and incredible property. But the 1.5 hour (free) tour was just too short. No time to investigate the amazing museum at the end or even visit the gift shop. That seemed odd. Would have loved to have taken photos of the interior, not sure what that’s about but I would recommend this tour to anyone with even the slightest interest in Frank Lloyd Wright, history or architecture. My exterior photos were a hit with all my friends.

You have the view of the lake and can spend a relaxing time with friends enjoying the wide choice of foods available and the famous Babcock ice-cream and a nice breeze if the weather is on your side the day you visit

A third generation family owned and operated art gallery that opened in June, 1969, Edgewood Orchard Galleries represents over 150 artists from across North America and shows their original paintings, jewelry, sculptures, glass, furniture, wood and clay in a beautifully restored century-old barn and award-winning sculpture garden. Voted Door County's "Best Art Gallery" every year for the past decade. Open 10-5 daily, May through October.
Really enjoyed our visit(s) to Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Door County, South of Fish Creek. They really expanded their sculpture gardens and my favorite is still always the inside buildings where they added a balcony to a new gallery. So bright and such wonderful art of all types. Great jewelry! Got some treasures each visit as we had to come back the next day. This is really the “art museum” of Door County, where just looking is okay. And everyone is so friendly and helpful. Will come back next year for sure as it’s the highlight of our Door County traditions.

This is an outstanding tribute to all who fought for the freedoms we enjoy. I highly recommend taking time to see this and then you can browse around the downtown area.
