In Wisconsin's "Hidden Valleys" region, wooded hillsides are etched with rocky outcroppings and dairy cows graze in lush meadows. Start your Wisconsin vacation in Monroe in Green County, where cows outnumber people. On a visit to Monroe's Historic Cheese making Center, you'll learn about the cheese making process and the region's rich Swiss heritage. Try pungent Limburger at the Chalet Cheese Cooperative or the Gruyere variety at Roth K's Cheese Store & Tavern you can sample a sandwich with Limburger cheese. Cleanse your palette with cold suds on tap at Minhas Craft Brewery. Next, head to picturesque New Glarus, Wisconsin, which resembles a Swiss mountain town. Geraniums spill from planters on wooden balconies at Chalet Landhaus Inn. Stop in at the Swiss Historical Village and Museum for a look at a replica pioneer village. Finish your vacation on a float trip down the slow-moving, scenic Sugar River. Crazy Horse Campground in Brodhead and S&B Tubing in Albany rent canoes, kayaks, or inner tubes.
