When the Birds Start Chirping

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Have you heard the birds singing the last few days? Talk about an uplifting sound after a long Wisconsin winter! If you like birding, then check out these IBA sites in Wisconsin – IBA stands for Important Bird Areas and these are habitats identified by the National Audubon Society as the most important places for conserving birds. To choose a B&B nearby, just use our regional map. Get happy with a Wisconsin B&B getaway planned around birding.

Green is the Favorite Color of Wisconsin B&Bs

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Top o’ the morning to ya! For St. Patrick’s Day (and every day really), green is in at these Travel Green Wisconsin certified B&Bs. The Wisconsin B&B Association has long been a leader in eco-friendly travel long before the green travel movement became more formalized. So many of our innkeepers source food locally – either from local producers or their own gardens. They restore historic homes rather than having them be lost to history. And they are incredible caretakers for the land that surrounds their inns, whether it’s hundreds of acres of rolling hills or a small corner lot in the city. We think you’ll find a pot of travel gold at the end of the rainbow with any of the nearly 50 inns that have made green their favorite color.
