USA, Wisconsin – A Tour in Small Town America III

Published: 11.10.2019
We are going to Wisconsin, USA for the third time today. It is said to be home to the ice cream cup. Reportedly first served in 1891 in Two Rivers. And the people of Wisconsin are still big fans of ice cream. According to statistics, the locals eat nearly 80 million liters a year. And this is a really dizzying figure, because there are less than 6 million people in the state. Czechs, on the other hand, eat "only" 40 million liters of ice cream a year.

Unless we did not motivate you enough and you have not jumped on a portion of good ice cream despite the cold weather, we will continue our tour of the small towns of Wisconsin. We will be the first to visit Elkhart Lake.

Elkhart Lake

A nice city with 900 inhabitants can be found on the lake of the same name, where you can go on a hydro-bike or canoe for a while. You can choose from several interesting restaurants (ideally next to the lake itself), where they cook from local farmers, or you can relax in the local spa.

We leave Erhart Lake and drive for about 2 hours on US-151 to the southwest and before Beaver Dam take the WI-23 south to Janesville. The city is interesting for its award-winning Rotary Botanical Gardens with over 4,000 plant species. You will only pay $ 7 for visiting these gardens, where you simply spend the whole afternoon quietly. In addition, there are nice bike paths or golf courses around the town.

We recommend a hike along the Ice Age Trail, which will take you through Janesville and lead you to the popular Devil’s Staircase. The Ice Age Trail winds across the state of Wisconsin and follows approximately the boundaries of a recent ice age.

Lake Geneva

The next destination will be Lake Geneva, a home to eight thousand located about half an hour away from our last stop. Lake Geneva is also attractive for its cafes and shops. Around the lake itself you will see splendid villas. The area is also famous for being chosen in the past by Hugh Hefner to build the first Playboy club.


We will end the trip in Bayfield, which sprawls on the shores of Lake Superior, and the panoramic views of the lake are one of the main attractions to stop by. The local climate is ideal for growing fruits and berries, so if you have the opportunity to buy strawberries, blueberries or cherries in local shops, take advantage of it.
