Midwest Adventures

1. Outdoor Trails: Although Wisconsin weather can be quite unpredictable, many outdoor trails and hiking paths are open year round. Accommodating cross country skiing and snow shoeing after a fresh snow fall - as well as a designated path for hikers and bikers as the snow melts. Explore the scenic trails throughout High Cliff State Park near Appleton, offering stunning views of Lake Winnebago and endless cliffs to meander through. Or head to the Wiouwash State Trail, which stretches amongst four counties, perfect for dog walking, biking, and of course simply being outside.

2. Embrace the Waterways: Wisconsin is known for its many lakes as well as housing one of the largest inland lakes known as Lake Winnebago. The Fox River, which flows through many cities including Oshkosh, Appleton, Kimberly, Little Chute, De Pere, and Green Bay, offers many waterway activities. Rent a kayak or a canoe for a slow paced day on the water. Paddle your way through Wisconsin's natural wonders while encountering wildlife such as birds, plants, and fish. Although it may be a little too chilly yet during spring break to jump in the water - you can still enjoy the Fox River and Lake Winnebago as the ice begins to melt away for the season.

Wisconsin offer excellent opportunities for anglers of all skill levels. As ice fishing comes to an end, avid fisherman are excited for the warmer weather ahead that brings a day out on the boat.
