Best Places to Visit in Wisconsin in the Fall

What is fall in Wisconsin like?  

We would say our favorite time in the whole world to visit Wisconsin is in the fall. Seriously, the weather during fall in Wisconsin is the BEST. Temperatures begin cooling off in September and typically creep downward until November, which is when someone typically slams on the gas pedal and the frigid temps begin to arrive. We’ll go from highs in the upper 70s during September to the 50s in November. By the end of August, most of the throngs of tourists are gone, and as the leaves change, we recommend visiting one of the many amazing state parks in Wisconsin for the ultimate leaf-peeping adventure.  

What are some fun things to do in Wisconsin in the fall?  

This little Midwestern state is nice to visit or live in all year long, but in the fall, we end up with some of our downright favorite things to do in Wisconsin. There are countless fall festivals in Wisconsin, and you can’t miss any of the best pumpkin patches in Wisconsin, either. Enjoy an incredible fall color hiking trail in Wisconsin, or maybe camp at one of the best campgrounds in Wisconsin, which should be awash with color from October to November. It’s the perfect time of year to go and enjoy the Great Outdoors before it gets too cold to do so, so what are you waiting for? Get outside and enjoy beautiful Wisconsin until it all freezes!  

Where can I go for some wonderful Wisconsin fall getaways?  

If you’re like us, sometimes a scenic drive is the perfect getaway, whether we’re flying solo or bringing someone special along. Alternatively, you can rent a cabin in Wisconsin that’s nestled among the foliage (impossibly relaxing), or maybe curl up next to a campfire with your person in one of the best campgrounds in Wisconsin. Seriously, as if our campgrounds weren’t magical enough, in the fall, they become even more so – Wisconsin is one of the best states for viewing fall foliage, hands down!
