Have Clothes, Will Travel
While winter in Wisconsin tends to get a bad rap, it is truly a beautiful time of year with plenty of things to do. You just have to bundle up!
But don’t worry, if you’re not up for freezing in the great outdoors – there are also plenty of things to do in Wisconsin during winter INDOORS as well! This post is here to help you decide how to make the most of your time in Wisconsin during our infamous winters.
Skate to your heart’s content while reveling in the views of Lake Mendota and the State Capitol, then warm up inside The Icehouse with a cup of hot cocoa paired with a tasty meal.
The Apostle Island National Lakeshore is tough to get into during winter; but if you’re lucky, you might catch sight of the majestic ice caves adorned with glistening icicles, as well as an entire cliff sheathed in ice.
The chilly atmosphere will have people flocking to local cafes and pubs to warm up. On the menu are artisanal chocolates, pastries, cheese, craft beers, ethnic foods, and more.
A natural wonder in its own right, Cave of the Mounds is home to some of the best limestone formations you’ll see when you go spelunking through the cavern.
A gripping alternative to rock climbing is ice climbing, and you may do so in Governor Dodge State Park where a frozen Stephen Falls has over 20-foot of climbing surface.
