Day trips in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Day Trips

This summer, why not take a day trip and explore some of the amazing things Wisconsin has to offer. A day trip is a great way to get out and have fun, without having to break the bank or take time off work. Here are our top three picks for day trips in Wisconsin.

Kayak Mirror Lake

Located near the Wisconsin Dells, Mirror Lake is a beautiful, peaceful place to paddle around and enjoy the amazing silence. The entire lake is a no-wake zone, which makes it perfect for inexperienced canoers, swimmers, and kayakers. And so beautiful!

Visit New Glarus

This charming little village is made up to look like a collection of Swiss chalets, complete with a historical reenactment, public yodeling, and even the occasional public alpenhorn concert. Don’t miss the nearby Hilltop Brewery, where you can tour the facility and sample some of the delicious craft beer they make.

Boggle at The House on the Rock

This testimony to madness and obsession also featured prominently in Neil Gaiman’s bestselling novel American Gods. Many readers think that Gaiman invented The House on the Rock for the novel, but it is all too real. If anything, Gaiman toned it down for the novel. You really have to see it to believe it!
