Scenic County Roads In Wisconsin

February 16, 2021

Are there any other can’t-miss roadways in Wisconsin?

The roadways mentioned above may be the most scenic, but they’re not the only options for a memorable drive in the Badger State. There are plenty of places you can soak in incredible views from the comfort of your own car. The Horicon Marsh Wildlife Area is one such place. In addition to lots of other perks, the area features a 3-mile drive as well as observation parking, so you can take your time soaking in the stunning surroundings. When it comes to scenic drives in Wisconsin, Peninsula State Park doesn’t disappoint. During your visit, you’ll be treated to bluff and lake views, which can be enjoyed from your vehicle and are especially stunning at sunset.

Where else can I find beautiful scenery in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin is teeming with beautiful sights and scenic spots. One that belongs on your bucket list is Copper Falls State Park. Like a picturesque dream brought to life, the park boasts waterfalls, gorges, lush greenery, and wildlife. St. Peter’s Dome State Natural Area is another must-visit for those seeking stunning vistas. At 1,565 feet, St. Peter’s Dome offers seemingly never-ending views of the surrounding Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Accessing the dome requires a 4.2-mile hike, along which, you’ll find a detour to another incredible site – Morgan Falls, a 70-foot waterfall.

What other scenic spots in Wisconsin can I effortlessly enjoy?

There are lots of waterfalls in Wisconsin, but you’d be hard pressed to find another that’s as easy to access as Cascade Falls. Located smack dab in the middle of Osceola, a charming small town in Polk County, you can practically drive right to Cascade Falls, making it one of the best road trips in Wisconsin. The 25-foot waterfall is a great visit year-round, day AND night – and that’s because in the evening, the waterfall is illuminated with color-changing LEDs.
