Wisconsin Travel Guide

This sanctuary amid 26 forest acres has a pretreatment ritual so soothing you may forget there’s more to come: start by scrubbing yourself down with Precambrian sandstone under a rainfall shower, then enter the fragrant steam and dip into the plunge pool.

Cool Wisconsin weather is no match for Miller Field’s retractable roof; the ballpark’s signature structure can open and close in about 10 minutes.

Book an excursion on one of five full-time boats.

Play a round within walking distance of Elkhart Lake’s town center.

Sunning not skiing? Cruise Lake Geneva and view historic estates.

Originally planted by orchardist Ken Weston's grandparents as a hedge against the Depression, this orchard grew to inspire such respect that it once hosted Julia Child for a visit. Weston's offerings have grown over the years to include more than 100 apple varieties, many of them rare.

Scale back a little at the 76,000-square-foot Great Wolf Lodge, where the “Fort Mackenzie” attraction is a don’t-miss, thanks to 12 levels of treehouse outfitted with suspension bridges and water games.

Travel by land and water on an amphibious vehicle; take trips through the Red Bird Gorge, over a sandbar, or into the river.

Save room for Apple Pie Baked in a Paper Bag.

Put your sneakers on and make a day of it at the Milwaukee County Zoo, home to red pandas, penguins, and hundreds of other exotic creatures.
