A few places to visit, with gorgeous views.

If you have a few extra moments on your visit, there are some really great places to visit.  Check out the map below for ideas heading toward the Mississippi River or toward Chippewa Falls. The drive to Chippewa Falls and the Lienie Lodge is about 45 mins.  The drive to Pepin is also about 45 mins.  A three hour drive heading southwest is really pretty. Lots of Wisconsin countryside views!   Click on the icon in the upper left of the map to get descriptions.
