Marching into Spring across Wisconsin

New London becomes New Dublin for a day every St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s late March in Wisconsin and the Madness continues! Our first week of spring in the state means winter sports in some parts of the state – a wild warmup and cool down for others, and plenty of events and sights to check out.

You gotta truly appreciate our amazing state: get out and explore beautiful state parks, fantastic wineries, breweries, and restaurants, great shopping in unique small towns, B&Bs, resorts, and more. Explore the state highways, like all the great towns and landscapes along Highway 33 from Port Washington to La Crosse, the snowmobile history wonderland along Highway 155 around Sayner and St. Germain, or the amazing Great River Road on Highway 35!

Downtown Racine

Cruisin’ down Highways 20 & 32 in downtown Racine, which is a great ride with plenty to do and see all around!

Whether you’re looking for spring or winter around America’s Dairyland, Pick Some Roads and GO!! Explore the state and enjoy fun places and cool sights, like America’s First Kindergarten in Watertown, historic Fort Winnebago and Fox-Wisconsin Waterway portage area in Portage, or take a winter tour of Milwaukee’s Miller Park or Hayward’s National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. The choices are mind-boggling, and we’re chronicling ’em as fast as we can!
