Local Memorial Day Trip Ideas

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner. Instead of spending it at home, why not save a vacation day (and a bit of cash) with a family trip nearby? Check out any of these unconventional destinations for getting away without going too far from home.

  • See Another Side of Wisconsin Dells: The Dells may be known for its waterparks, but it also boasts blocks of quirkier activities and places to check out on dry land. Zipline tours, go-karts and mini golf will provide endless thrills and outdoor fun for the whole family. Looking for something out of the ordinary? Journey for the mysterious Golden Skull at Lost Temple or race to find clues to free trapped sorcerers at Wizard Quest.
  • Indulge at ChocolateFest: The name says it all. Four days of chocolate-covered bliss in Burlington, WI featuring games, cooking demonstrations, flash mobs, game shows and, of course, heaps of cocoa.
  • Take a Day Trip to the Lawnmower Races: Racers, prime your engines for Fifield’s lawnmower races. Featuring six classes of riding mowers, these grass grazers whip around the track in pursuit of the coveted 1st-first place trophy. Make a pit spot at the concession stand and take bets on who you think will come out on top!
  • Pitch a Tent at Peninsula State Park: Before the bugs and summer heat take over, enjoy a relaxing camping trip to Fish Creek’s state park. Hike, golf, fish, bike and just enjoy the great outdoors. When you tire of campfire stories, pack a blanket and cruise to the nearby Skyway Drive-In Theatre and catch the latest double feature.

What are your plans for the long weekend? Lounging around the house or spending it in the great outdoors?
