Spent the day there with the family and had an absolutely great time. Watched the races, rode the go-carts and some of the family tried the zip line. The food was great....You have to try the Jensen Burger!! The track is awesome and there's many great viewing locations throughout the venue.

Wade House

Now in its 61st year of operation, Wade House historic site is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society. Set upon 240 rolling acres near the northern reaches of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, the site celebrates the world of plank road stagecoach travel, horse-drawn transportation, and mid-19th-century settlement and town building. The new Wade House Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum offers a rich array of exhibits providing orientation to the site and its themes. The wonder of Wisconsin's largest collection of carriages and wagons awaits each visitor to the site in the new, state-of-the-art 20,000 square-foot carriage museum. A visit to the site's historic area includes a guided tour of the 27-room stagecoach hotel built in 1850 and active demonstrations by costumed staff in the Dockstader Blacksmith Shop and Herrling Sawmill, which features an up-and-down saw powered by the Mullet River. Visitors are transported to and from the historic area via horse-drawn wagon, or they may enjoy a scenic boardwalk and walking trail. The Visitor Center includes a Gift Store and the Butternut Cafe, which offers lunch to museum visitors or travelers from 11 am - 2 pm daily.

This is a neat historic place to visit. You will see how they cut would for building, a blacksmith, a carriage museum and much more. You can also hitch a ride on a horse buggy. Really neat to see how people lived back in the 1800's.

Henning's Wisconsin Cheese

Reviewed By Kat H - Florence, Kentucky

We showed up early to watch them make cheese, and we were not disappointed. They even brought us fresh cheese curds that were just made, still warm and wet. This was an amazing and very informative visit. We learned how to make cheese, from cow to store. The cheese also happens to be incredibly tasty, and they have a large variety. If you have never tasted fresh cheese, you will be surprised and delighted at the difference between this and what you have been consuming for your entire life... This is REAL cheese. Also, if you plan to pick up a cheese hat in Wisconsin, this is a good place to do it.

Ledge View Nature Center

Reviewed By JodieLovesSun - Chilton, Wisconsin

I love Ledgeview. I walk my dogs at the park (leashed with a waste bag) as often as I'm able to make the time. The park has year around activities. Great hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country ski trails. The park includes several caves that can only be accessed with a guide. There's a wonderful, sturdy wooden tower with breathtaking views year around. I particularly enjoy the prairie grass trail in the summer is it depicts made up Wisconsin topography

Fisherman's Park

Reviewed By Talon38 - Austin, Texas

Fireman's Park is just down from the Osthoff Resort and has a very nice beach and some of the clearest water I've seen in a lake. There are various watercraft (non-motorized) available for rental as well as motorized boating, skiing, etc. nearby. Bring your own food or purchase it at the shops nearby (literally across the street). This is a great family adventure.

We where here in September when all the kids were back at school so the area was very quiet and not busy as when it's summer. Hotel is something to see but out off our budget.

SwitchGear Brewing Company

Reviewed By wiskaysin - Wisconsin

Located in Elkhart Lake in the Feed Mill Building (at the North end), this place is a great addition to this race town. The owners are 3 locals who are passionate about their beer, which is brewed in the basement of this beautifully decorated building. They offer flights of beer, about 5 of their own, along with about 20 other boutique Wisconsin brewed beers. The 7 oz. samples in the flights were perfect for getting a taste of what to try next - you can get a flight of 3 - 6 beers, your choice at $2.00 each. I'm so happy this place is here, you'll be glad you stopped in for some great beer and friendly service. We will be back often!

Two Fish Gallery

Reviewed By rmarq - WISCONSIN

Two Fish Gallery is a "not to be missed" destination when in the Elkhart Lake area. The gallery features a wonderful and often whimsical assortment of original art in a wide array of media. Jewelry, paintings, ceramic, wood, raku, glass, and even hand made birdhouses from Africa. The focus seems to be on originality and creativity. The gardens that surround the property are the work of Karen Robison, a noted botanist and educator. Again, the creativity is evident. One walks a path and moves from Alipine meadow to Japanese Tea House to Wisconsin prairie with plants and hard scapes subtly changing along the way. Various ceramic art is positioned along the route. The garden changes from season to season so it is worth multiple visits throughout the seasons.
