For Beautiful Fall Color Travel to Wisconsin

When most of us plan a fall trip to view colorful Autumn Foliage, we naturally think of the New England states, with their stunning scenery - and maple syrup - both world-renowned. But for half of the country, New England is a long way from home. For a travel destination that is easy for just about everyone to reach, think of Wisconsin.

In the Autumn this mid-west state is also covered with spectacular color, starting in the north about mid-September. The color generally doesn't peak in the southern part of the state until late October. Since Wisconsin is covered with woods and forests, you'll always be surrounded by beautiful Fall color. And there is plenty to do in this versatile state.

On the southeast peninsula in famous Door County is Egg Harbor. Surrounded by hundreds of miles of shoreline from Green Bay and Lake Michigan, this area is popularly known as the "Cape Cod" of the Midwest. On Columbus Day weekend enjoy the Pumpkin Patch Festival, timed to occur as the fall colors begins to peak in this area.

Just 35 miles from Milwaukee is Old World Wisconsin, the largest outdoor museum of rural life in the United States. Covering 600 acres, it has over 60 historical structures, ranging from farmsteads with houses and out-building, to crossroad villages. From September to the end of November, this remarkable living history museum offers a variety of "Fall Workshops." Adults can enjoy learning spinning, or blacksmithing, or "Autumn Harvest" basket weaving, while youngsters will be entertained with a "Little House Quilting Project," and even wood-stove cooking.

A great way to enjoy a colorful Fall vacation in Wisconsin, whether as a family, or maybe with several retiree friends, is to rent a timeshare. Timeshares are roomy, relaxing, and can be quite inexpensive. The kitchen will give you a chance to hone your culinary skills with Wisconsin's delectable cheeses. And did you know? - Wisconsin has its own famous maple syrup - delicious on your morning pancakes! See all Wisconsin timeshares.
