About the Tour

Country Travel DISCOVERIES and the experts at Our Wisconsin Magazine present an all-new exploration of our home state! Beginning in the capital of Madison, head off the beaten path to visit hand-picked small town highlights, unique attractions, and local stops across the western part of our state. You’ll tour incredibly scenic landscapes along the Mississippi River Valley and in the distinctive “Driftless Region” untouched by glaciers, as well as unusual glacial formations of the Upper Dells. Along the way, meet hard-working family farmers, take an exclusive tour of Ft. McCoy’s military training center, and enjoy such quintessentially Wisconsin experiences as dinner at a traditional supper club and visit to a museum entirely dedicated to…mustard.
