In our visit to Wisconsin a little while ago, we got to visit some attractions and see some sights! This one is going to be photo heavy.
Since we started in the Madison area, first up was the fabulous Cave of the Mounds. If you caves, this is definitely one to see! It has a lot of lovely formations, a few pools, and helpful guides stationed around the cave. Tours are self-guided, which is great for us.
Not only was the cave great, the grounds are also nicely done up with gardens and interesting mineral displays.
Next was the National Mustard Museum! Although this site is mostly goofy, with historical mustard “facts” and mustard history movies shown in the Mustardpiece Theater, if you like mustard this is the place to go! They have a display of mustards from every state in America and all around the world. And then of course – there is a massive mustard shop upstairs. With a mustard tasting bar!
And then finally we went to the Madison city Center to walk around and check out downtown.
There was much more to downtown Madison than the capitol building and this cow statue, but I got excited and forgot to take pictures.
From there we drove to Port Washington, a cute little town on Lake Michigan. There wasn’t a lot to do there, which was fine because we were there to see the lake and for a little downtime. We walked around the downtown area, walked along the lakeside, and walked out on a jetty to an enormous lighthouse that seems to be the town symbol. That lighthouse is everywhere!
From there we went to Appleton to visit my brother and SIL. I didn’t get any pictures there either, because we didn’t really go sightseeing as such.
Wisconsin is a lovely place with a lot of fun and interesting things to see and do. We didn’t get to do a lot of the things we planned on, but hope to be heading back there one of these days!
