The Most Breathtaking Natural Area In Wisconsin You’ve Never Heard Of

It’s no secret that the area along Wisconsin’s northern border and Lake Superior is stunning, no matter what time of year. In fact, there are so many wonderful places up here, it would be nearly impossible to see and experience them all. While tourists flood ferries to head to Madeline Island or head out on the water to see the sea caves, make sure you put time in your schedule to head to the Houghton Falls Nature Preserve. It’s one of the most underrated, under-appreciated spots in the whole state. Locals are super-familiar with it, but somehow it seems to have escaped the notice of those of us away from Bayfield.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Houghton Falls Nature Preserve is located at 77240 S Houghton Point Rd, Washburn, WI 54891.
