Every car in Wisconsin is either towing a boat or lugging canoes, kayaks, or bikes. This tour allows you to experience the absolute musts that type-T personalities crave.
Stretch your legs on a hike around Geneva Lake (that is, the lake, not Lake Geneva, the town).
Stroll some trails and do some birding at Horicon Marsh before espying geological residual topography from a bike in the Kettle Moraine State Forest-Northern Unit.
Hmm, that Lake Michigan, so full of fish. But where to get out onto the water and land one? Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and Two Rivers are all excellent choices!
Raft the Peshtigo River, one of the Midwest’s best.
If it’s winter, you simply must experience snowmobiling in Eagle River! If it’s summer, head north to Boulder Junction to try your hand at landing a muskie.
Spend your time either kayaking about the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore or hopping a water shuttle and hiking an isolated island.
Using Hayward as a base, rent a mountain bike and strike off into the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Trails.
Spend two days paddling the legendary St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
Bike a segment of the granddaddy of all rails-to-trails adventures, the Elroy-Sparta State Recreational Trail.
Bike along classic southwestern hills, waving at Amish buggies as you pass.
Drive to Wisconsin Dells for a sunny day scaling the ridges and bluffs of Devil’s Lake State Park.
