If you’re planning on visiting Wisconsin this winter, you’ll be interested to know there are some beautiful, scenic routes to be seen. Here are some great road trip destination ideas, courtesy of our friends at the Wisconsin Chrysler Dodge dealer.

Mainland Sea Caves (Bayfield, WI)

Found at GPS coordinates of 90500 Meyers Road, Bayfield, WI 54814, the Mainland Sea Caves are located at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. These ice caves are created in the winter after thousands of years ago, glaciers shaped the land into beautiful cliffs that look over the shimmering Lake Superior. Be sure to visit their website before you go, as they list any closures as they happen. That way you won’t waste the long drive to visit a place that isn’t open!

Door County

If you love to snowshoe or cross country ski, then you’ll appreciate the 19 parks with countless trails found in Door County! Two of the parks  in the area (Peninsula State Park and Potawatomi State Park) are open for winter camping as well! In case you wanted to stay the evening.

Minocqua, Wisconsin

If you are a snowmobiling fan, this is going to be a hot spot for you. It features over 1,600 miles of trails to ride. Not only that, but you’ll also have some beautiful sights along the way including 1,300 frozen glacial lakes and over 230,000 acres of public forestland (according to My husband and I actually camped in Minocqua years back and the nature was absolutely breathtaking in that area. I’d highly recommend checking this one out!

Eagle River, Wisconsin

Along the same lines of snowmobiling, I’ll add in the Eagle River area. Eagle River is actually the snowmobile capital of the world so you can’t get much better than that! It offers over 500 miles of trails to ride, plus plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry.

Madison Winter Festival

If you want to take a drive to do something fun and unique, check out the Madison Winter Festival, held on February 18-19 of 2017. Here you will find all kinds of fun activities including ice sculpting, hockey, ski jumping, and loads more. You’ll want to make sure you book your trip early as this is sure to bring in many visitors!
