USA, Wisconsin – Journey Across Small Town America
Such as Sturgeon Bay is the largest town on the Wisconsin Peninsula, which washes the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. It is known mainly for its history in shipbuilding. It is best to go to the local Maritime Museum to learn all about how the local community contributed to the construction of the US Navy during World War II.
In addition, you can spend a pleasant afternoon strolling around three lighthouses. If you go to the Michigan Street Bridge, you will see all sorts of ships entering and leaving the local harbor. Many of them set out on the lake to fish. So we recommend that you go into a pub, not only have great fresh fish, but also get to know the locals more.
If you want to go shopping, we'll take you to Jefferson Street or Third Avenue. If you stayed in Sturgeon Bay overnight, don't hesitate to go to Sunset Park or the nearby Potawatomi State Park, where you will experience a beautiful sunset if the weather is good.
We leave Sturgeon Bay and head to the university town of Eau Claire. It lies at the confluence of the Chippewa and Eau Claire rivers. Thanks to schools, there are a lot of young people, so it lives here. The chances that you hit a music festival or outdoor gathering are great. Those who want to learn about local culture and history will certainly appreciate museums such as the Chippewa Valley Museum, the Dells Museum and the Paul Bunyan Logging Camp, which is basically a woodcutting museum, because especially in the 19th century timber harvesting has been exceptionally successful.
Even Eau Claire is surrounded by beautiful nature, which just encourages to go somewhere on a trip. We can recommend a hike in one of the local nature parks such as Pinehurst Park, Lowers Creek County Park or Mt. Simon Park.
Autumn in Wisconsin has perhaps even more magic than summer. Everything is wrapped in the beautiful colors of autumn leaves, and you can pluck an apple in one of the apple orchards.
