Discover Wisconsin: Road trip - 5 places in Wisconsin worthy of a tour
Placeholder Image
Wisconsin may be known as America's Dairyland (and yes, we do get cheesy about it.), but "Wisco" is so much more than great dairy. Get ready to say hello to your adventurous side because I'm sharing with you five top spots in the state for a one-of-a-kind tour.

Lambeau Field and Packers Hall of Fame - Green Bay

Make your way to Titletown, and you're bound to score a touchdown year-round at Lambeau Field. The gameday home of the Green Bay Packers is one of the most legendary stadiums in the National Football League. Three tours are available, and as an added bonus, Brett Favre was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame last month. Go ahead and check it out.

Olbrich Botanical Gardens and Bolz Conservatory - Madison

Located in Madison, this Garden of Excellence Award winner is a true perennial paradise. The Bolz Conservatory at Olbrich Botanical Gardens is filled with exotic plants, flowers, orchids, birds, fish and a waterfall. The 16-acre outdoor gardens are open daily with free access and conservatory admission is available for a nominal fee.

Jurustic Park - Marshfield

Visit Jurustic Park in Marshfield to experience an eclectic collection reminiscent of a slightly popular dinosaur flick folks have been buzzin' about as of late. This statuary is a whimsical one with more than 250 metal folk art sculptures in the forms of dragons and dinosaurs. All of the creations came from found objects like antique farm equipment. Also on the property is the "Hobbit House," where you can browse beautiful jewelry and crafts.

Circus World - Baraboo

Located in Baraboo, the Ringling Bros. Circus was founded in 1884 by five brothers. Today, Circus World encompasses approximately 64 acres of land with about 30 permanent structures, including a handful of original "Ringlingville" winter quarters buildings and the Ringling Bros. Circus Train complex. Their collection of circus artifacts is believed to be the largest in the world. You'll see more than 200 original wagons and vehicles once used by American, English and Irish circuses. The indoor facilities are open year-round, along with the on-site Robert L. Parkinson Library and Research Center.

Cady Cheese Factory - Wilson

I cannot miss listing this factory that produces longhorn cheese in several varieties of cheddar, Colby, Monterey Jack and Gouda. Make that more than 50,000 pounds of cheese per production day. This plant is known for its Colby, a cheese original to Wisconsin, and has been in business since 1908.

Get together with family and friends to enjoy some of these hot spots, and Discover Wisconsin.
