The Perfect Fall Road Trip in Wisconsin!

Whether local or traveler, get to know the state of Wisconsin a little bit better by embarking on a fall road trip. From stunning scenic vistas to some of the best lunch around, we’ve planned the perfect trip for you. Fill up the tank, pack a bag, grab your camera, and follow along this perfect fall route in Wisconsin! 

1. Blue Horse Beach Café, Fish Creek, WI

The best and only way to start out a long road trip is to fuel up on food and coffee. Stop by Blue Horse Beach Café in Fish Creek for just that. It’s the perfect place to grab a breakfast sandwich, a coffee drink of your choice, and put the finishing touches on your trip. You’ll love their cozy, quaint café with a breathtaking view of the bay.

2. Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI

As we head south, there’s no better place to stop at—especially in the fall—than Lambeau Field. Stadium tours allow for fans and tourists to experience the history of the Packers franchise. Various tours are offered throughout the day on most days this week. We recommend the Champion Tour!

Devil’s Lake State Park is our next stop on our fall road trip. Hope you packed your hiking shoes, some water, a couple of snacks, and your camera! Devil’s Lake State Park is breathtaking in the fall. The trees have turned and the weather is perfect for a brisk hike.

5. Door Creek Orchard, Cottage Grove, WI

Door Creek Orchard is the perfect place to stop for a health afternoon snack. Pick apples directly off the tree or head to their homebased barn for pre-picked apples. Their barn holds countless apple bins, t shirts, gifts, honey, and an apple dessert corner. Door Creek is open from September through November. 

6. Schuster’s Haunted Forest, Deerfield, WI

Well it’s just about sunset, which means you need to head over to Schuster’s Farm for their Haunted Forest and Corn Maze. Their fall farm activities are perfect for families and couples alike. Catch eats and treats, find a spot by the bonfire, then get scared straight in the Haunted Forest. Schuster’s is a great pit stop along Wisconsin’s perfect fall road trip.

7. The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI

As we head west looking for the perfect place to wind down with a drink—only one place comes to mind—the Old Fashioned. If you’re looking for a cold micro beer or a classic old fashioned this is the place to be. The Old Fashioned is located right on the Capitol Square and just minutes from our hotel!

9. Pancake Café, Fitchburg, WI

A good hearty breakfast is absolutely essential as we begin our final stretch west. We’ve picked the Pancake Café in Fitchburg which was voted Madison Magazine, “Best of Madison” for 13 years straight! They serve both breakfast and lunch in case you decided to sleep in! On top of that they serve more than award-winning pancakes.
