Hang Out In An Igloo At This One-Of-A-Kind Wisconsin Riverfront Patio

Hudson is one of Wisconsin’s hidden gem cities. Other spots along the nearby Mississippi River tend to get the attention, but this great town along the St. Croix River has so much to offer. It’s a wonderful spot in the summer, where folks love handing out along the banks of the river, but a local spot with a killer patio found a way to enjoy those amazing views and the relaxed feel of outside dining during winter. Pier 500 is well-known to have one of the best patios in the area and they realized it was a shame to let all that space go unused and unloved in the winter.
