It was hot this week…
I can say this with absolute authority as I spent Wednesday on the road visiting many fabulous members in Columbia, Marquette & Waushara counties. If you’re not familiar with this area of south-central Wisconsin, you’re missing out on amazing, unspoiled natural beauty.

Check out the video below on Marquette county…

From boating & fishing to hiking & biking to bird-watching & golf, there’s something for everyone in Marquette county.  Don’t miss some of the unique local attractions either!

Tour Bison Ridge Ranch in Packwaukee where you’ll get the chance to see wild bulls, calves & their mamas on a wagon ride through their pastures.  Bison meat is also available for purchase on the ranch.

Free tours are available at Prairie Nursery near Westfield.  With nearly 200 acres, Prairie Nursery sells and ships native prairie seeds and plants.  Self-guided and public tours are available through their display gardens.

Finally, don’t miss Maggie Mae’s Cafe featuring “some of the best homemade dishes around”.  If you’re in luck, you’ll even get to hear Maggie Mae sing while you’re there – and be sure to ask about their next old fashioned Barn Dance.

Where to stay:
Montello – Be-Jax Sundowner Motel or TNT Ranch Bed & Breakfast
Oxford – Crossroads Motel & Cabins
Westfield – Pioneer Motor Inn

Golf WI Weekend

Golf WI Weekend

Through (leafless) tree branches and across the way, I can see a golf course out my window.  Although it’s still too cool and wet for the course to be officially open, there have been some die-hard golfers out walking the course with their clubs in recent days.  Warmer weather is on it’s way to Wisconsin and with it will come the golfers; it’s-for-business golfers, league players, beginners, life-long enthusiasts, and even just-for-fun-once-in-awhile folks like me.

From quick local courses to beautiful resort courses, Wisconsin offers a wide array of places to play.  If affordable is your key factor to hitting the links this summer, this article on TravelWisconsin.com features the “Best Rounds under $50″.  Also, check out the Golf Course Owners of Wisconsin site and their 2009 Platinum Passports for savings.

Know a young person who likes to play?  Don’t miss Golf Wisconsin Weekend.  May 30-31, many courses around the state will offer special discounts including free golf for junior golfers with a paying adult.  In conjunction, many lodging properties are offering discounts or packages to golfers getting away for Golf Wisconsin Weekend.  Check back to this link often as more properties are added to the list!

Just for fun, check out these great golf videos on YouTube and start thinking golf + getaway to a beautiful Wisconsin destination!
