Some love Wisconsin for its terrific weather in the summer, some come for the winter sports. What a lot of people don’t know, is throughout the last few years, as the temperatures decreased slightly and the amount of sunshine increasing, the fall colors that hug the winding roads up north are incredible and the fishing even better than summer (some would say). Here are a list of fantastic fall drives:
Manitowish Waters: While coming in September for the annual Northwoods Art Tour could be an incentive to visit for several days, it is actually the fall colors that are celebrated. You may admire the fall colors by car, bike or foot, but any way you look at them, take in the sheer beauty that compliments the calm waters of the Manitowish Waters. Explore one of the 5 routes or do them all. Highlight include the Cranberry Marshes, the scenic Powell Marsh Wildlife Area, Wa-Swa-Goning, a replicated Indian village, and the most scenic of them all, County Highway B and Lake of the Falls. Fall fishing is at its peak do be sure to dip your line into one of the thousands of lakes in Vilas County.
