Meandering Around Wisconsin

From Itineraries MidwestSpring Issue 2009

This sample itinerary is best in summer.

DAY ONE

Chippewa Falls and Fanny Hill Dinner Theatre
Tours in Chippewa Falls are always in good taste. Quench your thirst with tours and beverage sampling at area wineries or a local brewery. Visit a lumber baron’s home, area theaters, park & zoo, and other great attractions. If this has worked up your appetite, include a visit to an area cheese shop, orchard, or restaurant. This is just a sampling of what Chippewa Falls offers!

Overlooking the Chippewa River, the Fanny Hill Dinner Theatre is known for its fantastic seasonal decorations, great food and the best in comedies and musicals. Fanny Hill offers your group a variety of dining and entertainment options; matinees and evening performances along with luncheon and dinner stops, plus an award winning Sunday brunch!

DAY TWO

Wausau and Lodge At Cedar Creek
The Wausau Area has long been a haven for innovative thinkers- entrepreneurs, thespians and pioneers. Explore the nation’s largest ginseng enterprise, become a Wisconsin cheesemaker and make your own cheese, flock to the acclaimed ‘Birds In Art’ Exhibit and explore backstage at a grand theater.

The Lodge at Cedar Creek proudly proclaims the heritage of the area, from its log exterior to the mill wheel in the lobby, and most definitely in the cozy suites. You’ll see the past in the historic photos at the Saw Mill Grill. Enjoy our Northwoods hospitality at a special Welcome Reception.

DAY THREE

Minocqua
The area’s natural beauty inspires people to sing, dance and create. Take in a show, or visit galleries and gift shops that feature the works of local artists (demonstrations and classes can be arranged). Reflect on the rugged life of early Minocqua at a lumberjack show and celebrate the traditions of Native American culture.

DAY FOUR

Madeline Island
Travelers enjoy spectacular views of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands as they voyage to Madeline. But, the ferry ride is just the beginning of your journey. Your personally guided tour will lead you through the island’s history and legends at The Madeline Island Museum, including a weaving demonstration, lunch and shopping.

DAY FIVE

Superior
Encounter ships from around the world through narrated harbor tours of this international port. Walk on ancient lava beds that date back over one billion years. Stroll the beaches of the world’s largest freshwater sandbar. Experience the rich history and creative culture in shops, galleries and museums, including the world’s largest accordion museum.
