If you’re a resident of Wisconsin, chances are you aren’t afraid of a little snow and ice; in fact, Sauk City is one of the biggest destinations in the state for snowmobilers, and nearby Indian Lake County Park is popular even in winter. Still, it helps to have some local things to do in mind when you want to ward off the winter blues.
Go On a Mini Cheese Tour
Sauk City, Prairie du Sac, and other nearby
cities are part of the “Wisconsin Cheese Tour.” In Sauk City, head to Carr
Valley Cheese for awesome artisan cheeses. Cedar Grove Cheese over in Plain
also features an excellent selection, and you can round it out with some wine
from Wollersheim Winery in Prairie du Sac.
Ride a Snowmobile to Green Acres
Green Acres is a popular “supper club,” a
dining establishment that doubles as a social club. With a bar and a broad
selection of different menu items at different price points, it’s appealing for
a variety of moods and events. Try the specialties, like prime rib or fish fry.
Indian Lake County Park
Snow can make a beautiful backdrop to nature’s
scenery, so why not bundle up and head to Indian Lake County Park? There’s even
a segment of the popular “Ice Age trail” here, which extends 1,100 miles across
the entire state.
