About the event
Southwest Wisconsin is known for some spectacular back roads and our fall trip is headed that direction! Come join your BMW friends on an enjoyable ride featuring great attractions, beautiful scenery, delicious food and, of course, fabulous roads. The trip is limited to 8 couples, so don't delay in signing up.
Here's what we plan to see along the way. We will depart from Apple Valley, MN on Friday, September 15 at 9:00 a.m. Headed southeast along the Mississippi River, we'll cross into Wisconsin at Winona and will make sure to traverse the legendary and always entertaining Mindoro Cut northeast of LaCrosse. We all know our BMWs prefer twisty two-lanes, so we plan to avoid freeways and interstates where possible. Our lodging on Friday night will be at the Hillsboro Hotel in Hillsboro, WI (www.hotelhillsboro.com). Depending on the group's preference, we'll dine in Hillsboro or the neighboring town of Wonewoc.
Saturday we will head south on back roads through Spring Green, WI (home of Frank Lloyd Wright) en route to New Glarus, WI (home of the New Glarus Brewery and Spotted Cow Beer - www.newglarusbrewing.com). We'll tour the brewery and enjoy the quaint Swiss downtown before departing for our lodging destination for the night in Mt. Horeb, WI (www.grandstaymounthoreb.com). Dinner will be in Mt. Horeb at a local downtown restaurant.
Sunday morning we'll head to Baraboo, WI to visit Circus World, which was once home to the Ringling Circus and is now a National Historic Landmark (www.wisconsinhistory.org). It's really quite the attraction and is worth seeing. Afterwards we'll start the trek back to Minnesota stopping along the way for dinner.
