Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Wisconsin

Things to Do During Your Weekend Getaway in Wisconsin

Want to make to most of summer’s precious warm and sunny days? Make the most of them in Wisconsin. Consider the following to take in Wisconsin’s great outdoors.

  • 1. Hiking and rock climbing

    Step out of your vacation rental and trek the Ice Age Trail, one of the two national scenic trails in Wisconsin. This 1,200-mile footpath leads you through a diverse range of terrain. Climb the purple-pink quartzite cliffs at Devil’s Lake and enjoy stunning views of the waters below.

  • 2. Farms

    Acres upon acres of bright sunflowers at Pope Farm Conservancy create a dazzling sight. Stroll through this farm any time of the year and marvel at the thousands of sunflowers. Visit in August, when the plants are blooming, and take a guided tour or attend a special event.

  • 3. Biking

    The repurposed railroad line in west-central Wisconsin provides the perfect setting to test your pedaling skills. Power yourself through any of the three Elroy-Sparta railroad tunnels for a family-friendly ride. The paved trails in Oak Leaf and through the pines in Vilas County are also great for cycling.

  • 4. Kayaking and canoeing

    Head to the sea caves of the Apostle Islands and explore the narrow passageways and caves in the red-orange rock. Guides offer paddling lessons to beginners. For more terrific twists and turns, hop onto a canoe on Kickapoo River and navigate the Kickapoo Valley Reserve.

  • 5. Ziplining

    Lake Geneva promises an unbeatable zipline experience and canopy tour through the wilderness. The professional guides will help you to fly 1,000ft above ground. Race a family member across the adventure bridges!
