Just a quick post on fall color. The Wisconsin Department of Tourism has leaf watchers all over the state and their fall color report is a great resource to decide where to catch the best kaleidescope courtesy of Mother Nature. The southern half of the state is about ready to burst into full autumn glory. Search for a B&B in the region and spend the night so you won’t have to rush through the glorious show.
We lean toward the humble here in the Badger State, but there are a few things we can’t help but boast about and our state park trails system is one of them. If you’re looking for a recommendation, give the 98-mile multi-use Gandy Dancer Trail a go. It crosses the Wisconsin/Minnesota border twice on its way from St. Croix Falls to Superior. A highlight is the 520-foot bridge over the scenic St. Croix River. B&Bs in the area include the St. Croix River Inn in Osceola, Wissahickon Farms Country Inn in St. Croix Falls and Smoland Prairie Homestead Inn in Grantsburg. Happy hiking.
There’s still time for one last round of golf before the courses “roll up the greens” for the season. If you really want to make it memorable, book a tee time at one of these 12 golf courses around the state that made it to the 2010 list of Best Wisconsin Courses from Golf Magazine. Once you select the course, search for a B&B by city by clicking this link. For the die-hard golfer what could be better than waking up to a great cup of coffee and a energy-boosting breakfast followed by a round of 18.
