You’ll Absolutely Love A Fall Trip Down Wisconsin’s Cranberry Highway

Did you know that Wisconsin produces more than half of all the cranberries IN THE WORLD? Three quarters of the world’s cranberries are grown in the US and 62% of that crop is grown here in Wisconsin.

Most of Wisconsin’s cranberries are grown in the mid-central part of the state near Wisconsin Rapids. Up there, they’ve created a Cranberry Highway which stretches for almost 50 miles along century-old cranberry beds from Wisconsin Rapids to Warrens, and between Pittsville and Nekoosa. Not only will you see bog after bog of cranberries, if you visit in fall you’ll see them harvested and get to enjoy them at their best.

Aside from the peak at a unique Wisconsin industry, there’s a ton to see and do in this area of the state that you probably don’t know about. The area is especially beautiful in fall when the bright red berries mix with yellow and orange leaves to create a gorgeous fall landscape. If you’ve never been to this part of the state, now’s a great time to check it out.
