This Winter, Drive Across Frozen Lake Superior By Taking The Famous Ice Road In Wisconsin

Wisconsin winters can be pretty brutal. However, the cold weather does bring a few perks, such as the opportunity to drive on water … well, sort of. During the cold months of winter, Lake Superior freezes over, creating what has come to be known as the Madeline Island Ice Road, a thoroughfare between the Wisconsin mainland and Madeline Island. But you can do more than drive along the icy roadway. It’s also a popular spot for skating and biking. Take a look.
