Take To The Water With These 6 Fabulous Wisconsin Ferry Rides

We’re pretty surrounded by major waterways here in Wisconsin and long before we had cars or workarounds, we were taking to the water to bridge the gaps. The Dairy State is home to six different ferries crossing Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, the Mississippi River and the Wisconsin River. Some of them are necessary just to get where you want to go, while others are leftover vestiges of a time gone by. These ferries are an awesome part of living in Wisconsin and offer a great way to see our wonderful state from another perspective.

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/
