The Wisconsin River beautifully reflects cirrus clouds at Council Grounds State Park, just off Highway 107 north of Merrill.

We’re into October, with the beautiful bursts of color as the leaves change, this warm weekend (which will be followed by cooler weather), college and pro football, and celebrations of the harvest. We’re also into Oktoberfest season, fall festivals, and many other events, which make this an amazing time to explore Wisconsin. Hit the highways – Pick Some Roads and GO!! We have some fun ways to hit the road and check the countryside, towns, cities, lakes, landscapes, landmarks, points of interest, attractions, waterways and more right here on StateTrunkTour.com.

HIghway 19 in northern Dane County

Mazomanie

The Drive (West to East): Highway 19 begins along U.S. Highway 14 where Highway 78 turns off, just east of Mazomanie (pop. 1,578). It’s a good idea to start by checking out Mazomanie, a lovely little burg that was recently voted one of “America’s Coolest Small Towns” by Budget Travel magazine.

Highway 19’s start takes place right at a remarkable little sports bar called Rookies, which deserves its own little photo collage. Popular with baseball players, bikers, drivers and craft beer aficianados, Rookies is what most other sports bars strive to be. Memorabilia is here in incredible abundance. Check this out:
